To Be or Not To Be
A little kingdom I possess,
Where thoughts and feelings dwell;
And very hard the task I find
Of governing it well.
-- Louisa May Alcott.

umm...I have been 'tagged', if that's the correct way of putting it. :) I am not much of a list person...so without much ado or preamble, here are my answers to the questions ...
Number of Books I Own
Never thought of counting them...must be not more than 100, I think... I usually do not buy books if I can borrow them from a library...or unless I want to particularly own them...
Last Book I Read
Currently reading The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens...
Last Book(s) I Bought
Mein Kamph by Adolf Hitler ...
Books that Mean(t) a Lot to Me

Pride and Prejudice -- Jane Austen
Jane Eyre -- Charlotte Bronte
Great Expectations -- Charles Dickens

Books I Wish I had Finished
*Books I had to give up half-way and looking forward to taking up again*
The Pickwick Papers -- Charles Dickens
Don Quixote -- Miquel Des Cervantes
I understand that the norm is to pass this tag on to other blogger friends ...I will not name anyone; all those who love books are welcome to take this up! :)
