Meme in the momorning

Total Number of Books I Own: 280 in Delhi, many more in Cal. Have no idea how many, we have a fairly large family library at home…but are those books I own? Anyway, the Delhi number is constrained by the space I have to keep books (minimal)

Last Book I Bought: Am on a fantasy binge at the moment, as I try to work up steam for plotting my third book. Last book I bought was a Terry Pratchett. Maskerade. Rather disappointing, actually.

Last Book I Read: Re-read Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns. Last night.

Five Books That Mean A Lot To Me:Gah. OK
Series count as books, ok?
LOTR: Havent read them in years, but the big daddy of specfic is what drove me to the genre in the first place
Discworld: Pratchett is god. Or at least High Priest Hughnon? Ridcully
Sandman. Sorry, I meant Neil Gaiman is god. But thats ok, they can all be gods. Tolkien is god too, though a slightly out-of-it one. Im a pantheon type anyway
Anything by Wodehouse. The all-father in this rapidly growing pantheon
The Calvin and Hobbes series, and Bill Watterson takes up the newly created trickster seat. Not bad at all.

Tag Five People And Ask Them To Do This On Their Blogs:
Very well. Most of the people on my list are done anyway, Im inviting
Uma Mahadevan-Dasgupta
Gamesmaster G-9
The Compulsive Confessor

Update Putu and Bini have lists, too
