I've Been Booked

Book_libraryWhen a former professor and a current student both tag me with the same meme, then I know that it's time I answer their questions or risk wrath.

The Protocol: Answer 5 questions. Tag 5 booklovers.
The Questions:
1) How many books do you own?
2) What was the last book you read?
3) What was the last book you purchased?
4) What five books are most meaningful to you?
5) What is your most obscure favorite book? Or, favorite most obscure book?

So, here are my answers:

1) Around 300-400... I've seriously lost count and they are spread over a wide variety of locations.

2) Outside of re-reading what was required for class this semester, Remarkable Leadership by Kevin Eikenberry

3) The Joy of Digital Photography by Jeff Wignall (I think I want to be a photographer when I grow up)

4) The Bible; The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey; Radical Leap by Steve Farber; The Creative Habit by Twyla Tharp; My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers (note, these were the most influential and meaningful to me to read... obviously writing two books of my own has had significant meaning to me personally).

5) Big Stone Gap by Adriana Trigiani

And whom am I tagging?  Bob McIlree, Erika Andersen, Franke James, Derrick Sorles, and Claire Celsi.

Jeff Wignall

Wow, thanks for buying my book "The Joy of Digital Photography." I think I want to be a photographer when I grow up, too :) Jeff

Timothy Johnson

Jeff, I'm digging it so far. I'll let you and my readers know what I think when I'm done.

Kevin Eikenberry

Timothy - Thanks for mentioning my book again - I love that. :)

And I love this meme as well. I'm surprised, I guess that I haven't been tagged, but I guess that wouldn't stop me from posting on it anyway, would it?

You, and your list of books, are remarkable!

Kevin :)

Timothy Johnson

Kevin - consider yourself honorarily tagged.
