And now for something completely off topic

Catherine sent me this list of questions that are going around, so here we go.

#1 Total number of books owned - not that many anymore. In an effort to reduce the clutter in my life, I gave a bunch of them to the library. I can visit them anytime I want. I've probably got about a hundred left.

#2 The last book I bought - I can't remember.. I found out I could read them for free from the library.

#3 The last book I read - "How to Build a Time Machine" by Paul Davies

#4 Five books that mean a lot to me -

"Good Omens" by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. Damn Terry Gilliam for not being able to get the movie off the ground.

"Watership Down" by Richard Adams. It was the first "grown up" book I ever read (I think I was about 8 or 9).

"Lullaby" by Chuck Palahniuk

"The Wasp Factory" by Iain Banks

"Chuck Amok" by Chuck Jones. An autobiography by the guy who came up with all those really, really cool Warner Brothers cartoons in the 50's.

I LOVED Good Omens!! I literally laughed out loud through the whole thing, except when I was feeling touched, except when I was being made to think. Great book. Thanks for playing!

I should really learn to check my spelling before I post anything...

How embarrasing...

The Wasp Factory was really good.

I recommend Consider Phlebas and Use of Weapons also by Banks, and Crow Road was also very good. I haven't read The Bridge yet, but I hear it's also fantastic.
