Book meme

Inflicted on me by :

1) Total Number of Books

I have no idea. Eight to ten large boxes full if I remember. I don’t have a lot of space in my current flat.

2) The Last Book I bought
Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson.

3) The Last Book I Read

I’ve just finished Cryptonomicon and I’ve just started reading Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell by Susanna Clarke.

4) Five Books that mean a lot to me

Hmmm… This is a tricky one. These are in no particular order.

1) 1984 by George Orwell, which I think should be required reading

2) Neuromancer by William Gibson, which although written in a strange way, started the cyberpunk genre off.

3) Red Star (A graphic novel)

4) Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman, which started me on the whole writing malarky

5) Faust by Goethe

Okay, I think I’ll pass this on to ,   and .
