The Girl did this book thing
, and I wanted to participate too...
1) Total # of books I own:
It took me forever to count: 528, not including field manuals.
2) Last book I bought:
The French Betrayal of America. It's not even here yet.
3) Last book I read:
Last book I completed was the highly practical How To Raise a Puppy You Can Live With.
4) Books I'm reading now:
I take 'em one at a time; still reading Once An Eagle (it's 1291 pages.)
5) Books that have been important to me:
Hmm, "important", not just "good"...To Kill a Mockingbird, The Fountainhead, Skinny Legs and All, Alas Babylon, Cosmos, Stranger in a Strange Land, This Is My Beloved, and not to forget Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (the book my husband was reading when I met him, the spark for our first conversation) and Lila (the first gift I gave to my husband, for which I received my first kiss from him.)

Sara..I loved Skinny Legs and All. Thanks for
the memory. Every once in awhile when my books start to overwhelm me, I gather up a box or two
that I am not too attached to and take them to my used book store. I always end up bringing three boxes home. Is this called 2 steps forward 1 step back?

Sarah, completely off topic, but I thought you might want to know this. I was just visiting Bunkers weblog, and much to my dismay I found out that he passed away yesterday from a sudden,(and I assume a massive) heart attack. I left a message of condolence for his family there, and think maybe you will want to do the same.
I am just shocked by this news, he was only 5 years older than me.

You must have the "long" version of "Once an Eagle." Mine is only 871 pages...I wonder if the story ends differently in the longer version?
