Recent Books Read:
Some recent books I've read (within the past month):

Ex Machina by Christopher L. Bennet (Mini-review: ok)
Paradox by John Meaney (Mini-review: ok)
The Assignment by Mark Andrew Olson (Mini-review: Good, almost excellent)
Artifact by F. Paul Wilson, Kevin J. Anderson, Matthew J. Costello, and Janet Berliner (mini-review: not bad, not good either, stupid ending)
Storm Front by Jim Butcher (min-review: ok)

Total Books Owned, Ever:
Too many to count. Rubi and I have two bookshelves overflowing with books now. We've probably gotten rid of three times that many in the 11 years we've been married. Ideally, we'd have a huge house with one large room (library, in air-quotes) of wall-to-wall book-shelves crammed with books.
Oh, and a couple of easy chairs to sit in while reading - or a sofa to snuggle together on while reading.

Last Book I Bought:
Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith, the day it came out (weeks before the movie came out). Started and finished it the same day, before ever seeing the movie.

Last Book I Read, or Am Currently Reading:
Dean Koontz's Frankenstein Book 1, Prodigal Son, by Dean Koontz and Kevin J Anderson (so far, not great).

Three Books That Mean A Lot To Me, or Three Favorite Books (in no particular order):
1: Foundation and Earth, by Isaac Asimov. My brother gave me a trade paperback copy of the book and it introduced me to the Asimov Universe.

2: The Dragonlance War of the Lance Trilogy, by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. Excellent fantasy universe. Probably the first real fantasy I read with any interest. Excellent characters, settings, action, humor, emotions, etc. And dragons. Dragons rock!

3: The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy Trilogy, by Douglas Adams. All 3, uh... 5 (6?) books in the trilogy (major air-quotes there) are just... excellent. Nuf said.
