Since I'm it,

# of books I own:

Damifino. They're all in boxes in storage or in our garage. Two bookcases plus, let's say.

Last book I bought:

The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. Time to re-read it, in anticipation for the movie.

Last book I read:

Permission Marketing by Seth Godin. Amazing how quickly what was groundbreaking in 1999 has become common knowledge in 2005.

Five Books that Mean A Lot to Me:

The Road Less Travelled by M. Scott Peck. A clear argument for a love greater than humanity. Brought me out of a dark time in my life.

A History of Photography
by Beaumont Newhall. The textbook for my favorite college class, ever.

On Photography by Susan Sontag. Not pretenious at all, merely a discourse on why the corpreal will always be more cherised than the insubstantial.

Macbeth. My eleventh grade English teacher, Mr. Woods, showed me just how wonderful the English language was through this book. I don't think he'll ever know just how much of a difference he made in my life by doing so.

A Greek Interlinear New Testament. My introduction to Biblical scholarship, and the awakening of the idea that spiritual faith and intellectual curiosity are not incompatible.

And I know this list is incorrect, as it'll change tomorrow, as I consider how F. Scott Fitzgerald or Robert B. Parker or St. Augustine or W. Gene Smith have influenced my life, but it'll do for now.

Okay, Don, tag, you're it.
