Tag, you’re it

Amanda at Confessions of an Author tagged me with the following book meme:

Total number of books owned: about 1000

Last book bought: Poems of George Herbert for my sister’s birthday

Last book read: Reading Lolita in Tehran

Five books that have meant a lot: Louis L’Amour’s Education of a Wandering Man for opening my mind to new possibilities, Mary Webb’s Precious Bane because the story and the writing are so beautiful, Martin Gardner’s Whys of a Philosophical Scrivener for helping me work through difficult philosophical issues (though I didn’t necessarily come to all the same conclusions as he did), Flannery O’Connor’s The Habit of Being because she’s such an inspiration to me, and Sena Jeter Naslund’s Ahab’s Wife because in so many ways I am Una.
