I'll give it a go. I'm a voracious reader of all print and other media...gotta have it constantly, even at traffic lights, if not a book or magazine, the internet reports of world news on my blackberry!

> Number of books you have owned.

It's gotta be in the high hundreds. Of course many of them are Hebrew Jewish reference works.

> Last book you bought?

Artscroll Daf Yomi edition Shabbos volume 4 (still waiting for it to arrive; need it to keep up with Daf Yomi for a business trip next week)

> Last book you finished?
Wicked, which I was recommending while I was reading it but it was a little disappointing in the end.

> Five Books that Mean Alot to me?

Besides Torah learning, the books I buy are purely for entertainment so they don't mean too much to me.

> What books are you currently reading?

My daughter's "Must Love Dogs" is what I'm reading when I'm in the bathroom.

> What five bloggers are you gonna pass this onto?

None, in my mind these tags are sort of like a blog-based computer virus. But since I have never been tagged before, I figured I could answer here.

I own probably close to 500 or more books. I am a book whore, I must confess.

wicked was a good book and a superb show.

let's see, the last book i bought.

blood in the face: the ku klux klan, aryan nations, nazi skinheads, and the rise of a new white culture by james ridgeway.

hmm, the last book i finished reading was probably beyond fear by bruce schneier.

five books that mean a lot to me? hmm i don't think i've become emotional about a book ever. i read because i need to. but anyway i suppose they would be the following;

2) the enchanted wood, the faraway tree, and the folk of the faraway tree by enid blyton

3) jonathan livingston seagull by richard bach

4) mullah's on the mainframe: islam and modernity among the daudi bohras by jonah blank

5) peak of eloquence nahjul balagha by ali-ibne-abu talib
