I've been tagged...

by now I must tell you about my books...

Total books owned, ever: You really want the answer? Actually I have no idea, but am sure that if set fire to, they would burn down the entire state of New York.

Last book I bought: C. S. Lewis Through the Shadowlands: The Story of His Life With Joy Davidman by Brian Sibley

(though who knows when I’ll get to read it – my daughter walked off with it and who knows where she put it!)

Last book I read: tie between A Grief Observed by Lewis, and The House at Pooh Corner (read it to the kids)

Five books that mean a lot to me:
(Not an exhaustive list, by any means)

*my NAS Open Bible -- my husband gave it to me years ago & I like its references
*A Severe Mercy by Sheldon Vanauken
*Selected Poems by Thomas Merton
*Here I Stand by Roland Bainton
*Pour Your Heart Into It by Howard Schultz (founder of Starbucks)

Tag 5 people: OK, let’s see... Catez, Chad, David, Kristen, Prof. LaBar, Marla
...gotcha! ;-)

See, this is what happens when I try to do too many things at once...I lose my ability to count! Or keep track of things.

OK, so I tagged 6 people! Count 'em. I really love tag.

Marla: my deepest apologies!!!

(Update #2: my missing book has been a bathroom drawer)


  • Sure, lure me over here by telling me that you tagged me, but you didn't's okay, I forgive you ;)

  • Alrighty then. May be 2-3 days before I notice the sticky tag and place answers on my blog - seeing as I'm an absent-minded book reading type...

  • You're going to love Through the Shadowlands. Sibley did a great job on their life; "sweet." I've seen others who've been tagged on this one over the past week and we all seem to be bibliophiles!

  • Hey, Bonnie thanks for providing me the opportunity for a much needed introspection. It was a good little exercise.

    I've posted my answers here.
