Responding to Tagging

Since I have been tagged twice I suppose I ought to answer! Here are the questions and my answers:

Q. Most books I've ever owned.

in my life? NOW – I own the most books I have ever owned now. Amount?
Oh jeepers, I am not going to count them, but my guestimate would be
around 1,000 books give or take. We like books and I just bought about
15 more.

Q. The last book I bought.

Well, since you asked; and I have just placed an order, here it is! Surprise
Puppy!, Munching, Crunching, Sniffing, and Snoop, What Is P.B. Bear
Doing?, Incredible Great Hunters, Mission to the Arctic, Incredible
Buried Treasure, Rockets and Spaceships, Volcanoes: And Other Natural
Disasters, A Day at Greenhill Farm, Disasters at Sea, American
Revolution DK Eyewitness Books), World War II
(DK Eyewitness Books), Where Is P.B. Bear?, and Wild West (DK Eyewitness Books) – all from
(And all from DK Publishing. I am a DK hound! It helps that I used to
sell them and own a ton already - I know the quality and love it.)

Q. The last book I read.

Susan Creek (blogged about below). I am currently working my way through, The Daisy Chain.

Q. The five books that meant the most to me.

the most to me” is a very fuzzy phrase so I will just say the five
books that mean a great deal or have influenced my life a lot.

Bible: God’s word, and His rule of life for us.

The Lord of the Rings
(J.R.R. Tolkien): It created in me a desire for rich detailed reading
of a well-done story, and I love the fantasy world of Middle Earth.

To Train Up a Child (Michael & Debbie Pearl): Because it helped to shape the (almost always) delightful children we have today.

The Bondage of the Will (Martin Luther): Martin Luther, a favorite former theological giant, helped me to see it is none of me and all of God.

The Holiness of God
(R.C. Sproul, Sr.): RC, a favorite living theological giant, helped me
to see what holiness is, and how truly holy God is, and how much I am
not. It is humbling to see yourself as Isaiah saw himself – “Oh woe is
me a man of unclean lips!”

And that is it!
