Im it for Book Tag

I have been informed by Carmel at Winterr’s Words that I have been booked tagged.  I’m game to play so here goes.

1.Total amount of books I have owned:

I am trying to be precise here the question states "books I have owned" so I am including present and past.  This has to be a huge guess because I have a very bad habit.  I am not like my wife who gets all her books from the library, I buy my books from amazon or where ever, and then I sell them again.  So, Current we probably have 300ish books in the house and I have probably been through another 300ish so is 600ish a good enough number.

2.Last book I bought:

The last book I bought was "Fodor’s Walt Disney World® and Universal Orlando® with Kids 2005 (Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando With Kids)".  We are planning our summer vacation.  OK, my wife is planning it.

3. Last book I read:

The last book I read from cover to cover was "The Jordan Tracks" for a book review.  Now I have five books in the works ranging in topics from investing in real estate to C. S. Lewis.

4. Books That Mean A lot To Me:

There are so many.  My most important would have to be The Bible.  The book along with a little help from the Holy Spirit has transformed my life.  Then probably The Brothers Karamazov.  It was the first "big" book that I made it through and I learned that I can indeed read mature literature and my love for reading was born.   Anything by C. S. Lewis is a blessing (Did you see the previews for the new Disney The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe movie).

Then Money Possessions and Eternity by Randy Alcorn blessed my financial life and Rich Dad Poor Dad  helped teach me to dream in the financial realm.

5. Tag 5 People and have them do this on their blog:
Now Tag, you are it!

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.

  1. Lyric with mouth agaping: Oh my! LOL
    What is the appropriate protocol for tagging another blogger? I’m such a newbie, I wouldn’t want to get started off on the wrong foot with other bloggers. So far, you’re about the only one with whom I’ve had any dialog. Is it okay to tag total strangers?

    That is pretty funny. I think the proper protocol would be to start commenting on other people’s blogs and get to know them a little bit. A great place to start is the blogs that you have linked to. Start chit chatting with these people and get to know them a bit. Honestly most people are quite friendly and helpful.
    Good luck. Glad to see I am the one that gets to stretch you a bit. lol
