sweet memes are made of this

i like books. i like bunchofpants. so i'm going to do the book meme that bunchofpants did.

1. Total number of books in your house?

more than you've got. well, unless you're benchilada.

2. The last book you bought was?

the little friend by donna tartt on monday night.

3. What was the last book you read before reading this message?

i read three or four books at a time so roast eggs--douglas clark, war trash--ha jin and the afterword--mike bryan.

4. Write down five books you often read or that mean a lot to you.

catcher in the rye--salinger. i read it every few years, goddamn it.

twinkle twinkle--kaori ekuni. beautiful and pure.

any wodehouse. i can read jeeves repeatedly and i always laugh.

magical thinking--augusten burroughs. i know, it's pretty new but i can't stop thinking about it.

narnia books--c.s. lewis. regardless of the religious underpinnings, i still love them.

5. Who are you going to pass the stick to and why?
smoke 'em if you got 'em but i'm not passing this on.

I love wodehouse and narnia, too! Ooh, new Augusten Burroughs--I've read Dry and Running With Scissors and loved them both, so I'll have to read the new one. I hope the library has it ...

the new one is sooooo funny sometimes that i had to actually put it down so i could laugh properly!

running with scissors is the only other book of his in town and it's at another branch. stupid library.
