What? Twice in one day?

Hello again. I was tagged. by don't eat baby so here goes:

Total number of books I own:

Too many. I have BOXES of books waiting for a bookshelf. I have baskets of "just read" books and the empty husks of books long ago "eaten" scattered throughout my home.

I don't know why I keep them. I rarely read a book more than once. I am a book hoard.

Hello, I am Tiffany and I am a book hoard.

Hello Tiffany.

Last book I read:
I am in the process of reading a romance novel by Jayne Ann Krentz. It's bad. pretty darn bad actually. But I have to finish it. It's a rule.

Last book I bought:
So as not to have to revisit the whole topic up there I will instead mention Water for Elephants. Which I purchased recently and LOVED! I subsequently purchased the other two that Sara Gruen wrote and they were also good but not nearly as good...

5 Meaningful books:

Black Beauty.
horses. that's it. what more is there?

Things Fall Apart
Not Anjali's version but the African version. I think the author's last name is Achebe.

Possessing the Secret of Joy

Alice Walker. This one is about female castration. 'nough said.

Judy Blume. Sex. This one was a huge eye opener for me at the delicate age of say 15...

And then not so meaningful but one of my all time favorites is

The Princess Bride.
William Goldman also wrote Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and is (in my humble opinion) a comic genius...

And there you have it.

I am a bibliophile. I love books, even bad books. I admire the work that went into them and often wish I were friends with the authors, and sometimes with the really good ones, the characters.

I am working on a short story. If anyone would like to volunteer to be a sounding board for a sci-fi ish piece, let me know.

I'm so glad you were tagged my Mommy Chicky - I meant to tag you but forgot.

Gotta love Judy Blume
