Queries about Books

OK, the blog has been a little slow lately (been too busy at, but I found this over at GKC's Favourite and thought it looked like fun...

1. Total Number of Books I've Owned:
Yikes, I have no idea as we haul them in and out of here pretty fast all the time. Probably about 4000 in the house presently. Owned - total - maybe 6000.

2. Last Book I Bought
Energy Makes Things Happen (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 2) by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley, illustrated by Paul Meisel

3. Last Book I Read
The Ballad of the White Horse by G.K. Chesterton

4. Five Books That Mean a Lot to Me (besides the Bible):

I'm going to cheat here and give myself a few categories...

Religious Non-Fiction:
On the Incarnation by St. Athanasius
The Catechism of the Catholic Church
Vision Book Series from Ignatius Press
The Restoration of Christian Culture by John Senior
The Lady of Guadalupe by Tomie de Paola

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney
Father Brown Stories by G.K. Chesterton
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

Hilda Van Stockum
J.R.R. Tolkien
Cardinal Ratzinger
C.S. Lewis
William Shakespeare (but who's counting?)

5. Tag five people and have them do this on their blog. Okay - you're officially invited to partake in this very interesting, but nearly impossible exercise (well, at least the last part), but only five of you mind you!
