Tagged!!!!!????!?!?!?!!?

Well, okay,

1.How many books do you own?
As I look around the house, I seem to notice that we have books everywhere! I am talking in the kitchen, den, living room, bedrooms, bathrooms, and one in the laundry room. I believe we even have some out in the cars and I know we have a stack or two in the garage. Who knew?

2. What was the last book you bought?
Well, as it happens, we just bought four books. Messy Spirituality by Michael Yaconelli, Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller, To Be Told by Don Allender, and The Joyful Christian by C.S. Lewis.

3. What was the last book you read?
I am currently reading Messy Spirituality which I am enjoying very much. It has brought a lot to light. Before that I read Tara Road by Mauve Binchey. ( I am sure I spelled that wrong.)
I didn't like that book. It made me angry, and brought up a lot of old feelings that suck. Not to mention that is was an Oprah book. But I won't go there.

4. Name five books that mean something to you.
Umm, well, okay. The Bible means a lot to me, as it has changed me forever and continues to do so every time I read it. Where The Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein is a book that means a lot. It was one of the first books I fell in love with as a child. It brings me lots of funny memories. Dangerous Wonders by Michael Yoconelli is another one that I love. It reminds me to stay as a child. My Journal is another book that means the world to me as it is the reason I am sane today. It is the story of my life and has taught me many lessons. It has been my best friend and trusted advisor. It keeps all of my secrets and never tells them to a soul. It is my direct path to God's ear.
I can't think of another one right at the moment. Perhaps I will fill in the blank later.

I guess I will tag Alisha, Amy, and Dave......

Hey Sherry,
I looked into getting "The Starter Wife" at the library, but they don't have it in the system yet, and I could only find new hardcover books on sale. This might be a better choice in a couple of months when it's not so new. What do you think about switching back to "The Secret Life of Bees?" That's been out awhile, so it should be easier (and cheaper!) to get.

I wasn't tagged, but I wanted to comment - I hope that's allowed.

Sherry, I'm like you, more books than I have room for and more books than I have time to read. I'm currently reading a couple different books. One is Lipstick Jihad and the other is Reading Lolita in Tehran. Both are about Iran and very eye opening. One is written by a woman who returned to Iran after schooling in the West, just as the revolution (1979) was beginning. The other is written by a woman who grew up Iranian in CA and returned early 2000. I am really enjoying the heck out of them, which is odd, I'm not really into historical stuff - but who knew that women in Iran didn't have to wear veils until 1979! Of course it's about much more than that.

There are more than only 5 books, but along with the Bible, the Perspectives book (which is a grouping of many writings) rocked my whole view on God and His love for His people, giving me a solid understanding of how He wants me to live.
