I've Been Book Tagged! 

I was “book tagged” by W.S. Cross!
What is book tagging you ask?
Well as W.S. puts it, it is a literary chain mail basically. You have to answer the 4 questions given and then “tag” 5 other bloggers.

Here are the questions, along with my answers:

1. Total number of books you’ve owned: This one is impossible for me to answer. I was learned to read when I was only 4 years old. My mother would take me to the library several times a week, and I never left without a little green Beatrix Potter book. I moved on as rapidly as I could, reading every book I could get my hands on. I was born to haunt used book stores. My first real collection was old Nancy Drew books. I went for the originals, not the reprints. I actually still have them all in a bookshelf right next to this desk. Since then my book collection has grown dramatically. I have 3 large bookcases full and they are piled everywhere. Once I buy a book it never leaves my house again.

2. Last Book I Bought: The Winds Of Change written by Martha Grimes. This is a Richard Jury mystery. No idea what it’s about as I haven’t read it yet. I am sure I will like it because she has never done me wrong in the past.

3. Last Book I Read: This one is much easier! “Conspiracy Theory written by Jane Haddam. It is a mytery “starring” Gregor Demarkian. Jane Haddam’s books are extremely well written and very topical. Conspiracy Theory deals with “America On Alert”, a group of people who believe that 13 families rule the world and are working towards a One World Government. Well worth the read, as are all of her books.

4. 5 Books That Mean Something To Me:
A: The Complete Tales Of Beatrix Potter. The first stories I learned to read by myself.
B. Nancy Drew – The Secret Of The Old Clock written by Carolyn Keene. This is the book that started my collecting obsession.
C. Judge Me Not written by John D. MacDonald. The book that introduced me to one of, if not THE, greatest pulp-fiction novelists.
D. Green Eggs And Ham by the great Dr. Suess. I loved listening to Ap0k read this book to our daughter when she was little. It was a nightly ritual.
E. A Wrinkle In Time written by Madeleine L'Engle. Published in 1973 when I was 8 years old. This is the book that introduced me to science fiction.
