Christine Tagged me!!! I feel so loved but akk. This was a hard one.
1)Total number of books in your house:
ummm 100s. I don't know.
2)The last book you bought was:
Unexpected Knitting Debbie New. Yeah, I broke down and did the dirty. $60 later I was overwhelmed but inspired. Good buy but maybe I should have looked for it at the public library.
3)What was the last book you read before reading this?
I'm rereading the Early Diary of Anais Nin vol.2 I like this volume because it makes me giggle. I belong to several Nin societies and can't recommend her work/life enough. A good 50+ of the 100s of books in the house.
I'm also starting The Artist's Way (Julia Cameron) yet again. God help me.
I was going to download Joyce's Ulysses for my ipod 'cause I figured it's the only way I'll ever get through it....I filled up on 3G's of TBC, Wainwrights and unreleased Lindsey Buckingham instead. There's always next year.
4)Write down 5 (or 6) books you often read or that mean a lot to you.
1.Anais' Diaries. Her archetypes are universal. I often ask myself WWADo? She's an inspiration to both my femininity and my feminism. And she also gets my ass in gear in terms of my own journaling.
2.Naoko Takeuchi's Sailor Moon series. The most amazing ouvre ever. Not even kidding! Brilliant storytelling beautiful artwork and Tuxedo Max!
3.Anything Renee Vivien...my hero.
4.I love 'The Linnet's Tale' by Dale C. Willard. It's like a Jane Austen novel but with mice (and a linnet).
5. The Veil's Edge, Willow Polson-To choose one from that section of my minilibrary. Deals with the practical use of quantum physics in everyday spiritual life. I 'often read' this one b/c I don't always get it and would like to be able to quote it.
6-10 Assorted knitting and knitting inspiration including Kaffe Fassett and Judy Chicago
This is a weird list. If I'd done it yesterday it would have been different. It's missing a lot of novels. Also Agatha Raisin Mysteries. yum.
5)Who are you going to pass the stick to (three people) and why?
Tere-A clever girlie who seems to be a homebody so prolly reads quite a bit.
Stephanie at Glampyre b/c she is someone I'd like to know! What does she read that inspires her designs? Inquiring knitters want to know.
Ana Voog -Can I do that? She is so cool and I've never messaged her...now I have an excuse!
