by Rob Friesel

Via Dystopian Ethic… (and suddendly, having flashbacks to the alternate, SMC-only meaning of “books”)

  1. Total number of books I own: Following the great purge of ’02 and then the floods of ’03 and ’04… We’re down to probably somewhere in the vicinity of 500 books ranging from Surprise, Surprise to Fundamental Neuroscience.
  2. Last book I bought: If memory serves correctly… Villa Incognito
  3. Last book(s) I read: my third reading of Infinite Jest was completed two nights ago; I didn’t “finish” but “got finished with” Programming PHP a little while back in favor of non-paper technical docs on other topics.
  4. 5 books that mean a lot to me:
    • Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace
    • Neuromancer by William Gibson
    • Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson
    • The Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger
    • Grendel by John Gardner
  5. Tag 5 people and ask them to fill this out in their LJs blogs:
