A Book Meme...

Okay Aurora...

Total number of books owned:
Last time I took inventory the count was
480... but that was 2 years ago...

Last book bought: was from a second hand book sale. Amongst my purchases there, I bought a collection of Mark Twain's short stories.

Last book read: was Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. It left a lasting impression. My day includes a talk with the bird on my shoulder. I ask, "Is
it today?"

Five books that mean a lot to me:

1.) The greatest priviledge is reading God's Word.

2.) Anna Karenina. I learned a lot about people from Tolstoy's characters.

3.) The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. Actually, I have not finished reading this yet. I am working on the 3rd habit which is about scheduling, a favorite past time for me. This is definitely the best self help book that I have ever read.

4.) Who Has Seen the Wind by W. O. Mitchell. This novel is very special to me as it introduced me to the wonders of literature. This book also captures the prairies, which I love.

5.) I love the romantic book, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Sigh...

I am going to leave this tag open to other book lovers out there.

I read Tuesday with Morrie several years ago, I agree it is a great book.

I might have answered this tag if I wasn't all tagged out :))

Thanks for doing this. :)

I love Pride and Prejudice and Who Has Seen The Wind, too. I wonder how much being Canadian has affected our book choices?

1. Pauline Johnston's book I have with a deckle edge that's been with me 20 years. Those rythms of the Song my Paddle Sings.

2. A scrapbook from about a century ago that I got at auction with all sorts of clippings of poems.

3 Whatever is newest arrived?

I was asked to do this by someone but I forgot! Don't even remember who asked me.

My you have a lot of books. I don't own many books, but I love them. Every time I go into a library or especially the christian book store that my daughter manages, I get such a feeling of happiness. Happy reading.

You're one very well-read lady! I wish I could read book, but the PC is too distracting for me.

Have a great week ahead.
