Book meme

I was tagged by morsza some time back, and I'm just now getting around to this:

1. The total number of book I own:
Oh dear....hundreds, if not over a thousand. Our bedroom has two full bookshelves and many tubs and stacks of books. My office has five bookshelves full of books, plus additional stacks. Scott's office has two bookshelves full. The kids have two bookshelves full. We are serious READERS in this house.

2. What was the last book you bought?
"The Feelings Inside" by.......morsza! and Mary King! I just haven't gotten to read it yet! :(

3. What was the last book you read?
"Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs" by Chuck Klosterman. This book is WONDERFUL and will make anyone around their late 20s to early 40s laugh in recognition of themselves.

4. List five books which have been particularly meaningful for you:
"Les Miserable" by Victor Hugo. My all time favorite story. My favorite musical, too.
"Bald in the Land of Big Hair" by Joni Rodgers. A great book on the journey through cancer treatment, especially in Texas.
"The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook" by Edmund J. Bourne. I have a panix and anxiety disorder and this book really helped me understand it and work out cognitive therapies to cope with situations.
"The Nerd" by Larry Shue. This is one of my favorite plays.
It's hard to pick a fifth, but it's got to be a tie between something by Hunter S. Thompson for making me laugh, Piers Anthony for making me dream, or Robert Heinlein for making me think.
