Book tag
Red has tagged me with the book tag. Thanks, buddy! =) I did this back in May so I'm just updating it for 2 months later.

1. Total Number of Books I've Owned
Beyond a number, I am sure. I have a real addiction to buying books and rarely end up being able to go without buying one. Even just going to the grocery store usually finds me picking something up. Right now, I have my library with 6 5-shelf bookcases completely filled. There alone has to be 500+ books.

2. Last Book I Bought
Do you need to ask? Harry Potter, of course! It arrived yesterday at 10:30am and I've been buried since (well, as buried as I can be with everything else).

Before that though, I bought The Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.

3. Last Book I Read
"Brother Fish" by Bryce Courtenay...it was a fantastic book and I still miss the characters two months later. It's a great book about the unlikely friendship formed between an Australian (Tasmanian) soldier and a black US soldier during the Korean War while POWs. It is very powerful and has made me tear up quite a few times. It hasn't been released in North America yet (I had it sent from Australia), but when it does in October, everyone should read it.

4. 5 Books that mean a lot to me
- Four Fires - Bryce Courtenay
- The Burning Shore - Wilbur Smith
- The Shopaholic Series - Sophie Kinsella
- Exodus - Leon Uris
- Gone With The Wind - Margaret Mitchell

5. Tag 5 people and have them do this on their blog
I'm not going to tag anyone but if you'd like to do this, I'd love to read your answers. Just let me know and I'll pop by your site.

Vancouver, British Columbia
A patriotic Canadian full of visions of a better Canada, random thoughts and a lot of hot air. Who am I? A struggling writer and photographer, who looks forward to a better Canada. I read. A lot. I learn. A lot. I push myself. A lot. The world is a small place, and getting smaller every day. I'm proud to have friends in every corner of the earth, and abide by the old adage that there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet.
