books, books, books

I was tagged by bugheart but sadly I don't have 5 people to tag. So, I will answer anyway because I do love and collect books.

My 5 favorite books:
I have so many favorites but here are five

1) Jane Eyre by Ms. Bronte
2) Wuthering Heights by the other Ms. Bronte
3) The Razor's Edge by Somerset Maugham
4) The Encylopedia of Country Living by Carla Emery(she even tells you how to deliver a baby in a pinch! a human baby! good stuff.)
5) Storey's Basic Country Skills

The last book I bought was on ebay:

The Social Destiny of Man by Charles Fourier

Last three books I read:

1) Storey's Guide to Raising Dairy Goats (yesterday on the train)
2) The Mushroom Cultivator by Stamets and Chilton
3) The Long Emergency by James Howard Kunstler (still reading)

Five books that have been meaningful to me:

1) Nickled and Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich
2) Freakonomics--especially the chapter on baby naming in the US
3) Stolen Harvest by Dr. Vandana Shiva (all of her books in fact)
4) Ten Acres Enough by Edmund Morris
5) Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life by John Lee Anderson

Books I am dying to read:

1) Against the Grain by Richard Manning
