Back from my vacation in Florida, to the Everglades and scuba-diving in Key Largo!!
And now, a book meme:
Books I physically own.
- The Art of Audubon, The Golden Deer of Eurasia, Voyages of Discovery, Morris by Himself, all massive museum-quality books with gorgeous art.
- I buy lots of books for a penny on Amazon. Most recent: Empire of the Ants, by Bernard Werber (AWESOME); Next on my list: some Calvin and Hobbes anthologies.
- I have a lot of the Everyman’s Library essential set, Y the Last Man comic series.
- Dark, bleak adventure stories, both fiction and non-fiction; evolutionary biology books.
- A few that I made for my husband :)
- Lots of Age of Discovery illustration anthologies, anything I can get my hands on with Harry Clarke art; I’d love to get the Swinburne illustrated by him.
- Cormac McCarthy and Kurt Vonnegut.
- Nothing yet, but I have my eye on the complete works of Yashida Hiroshi and Hasui Kawase.
- Yes! The Key by Benita Kane Jaro. A historical fiction about Clodia and Catullus. Yes. I am an Ancient Rome geek.
- Harlequin dime-backs. I have zippo.
- I don’t know.
- Right now, I’m thinking of Pauline Gedge’s books set in Ancient Egypt. F-ing spectacular, like you’re there.
- Beowulf and Meditations by Marcus Aurelius.
- The Complete Works of Shakespeare.
- Uh, no idea. I haven’t seen some of my books in 3 or 4 years because we’re waiting to unload all in a massive library in some house we’ll buy in the future. I’ll get back to that one.
- Lots of incomplete comic book anthologies, like Sandman, Fables, etc.
- I have lots of old old books I’ve bought at antique shops. Perhaps...
- The Mosquito Coast by Paul Theroux, Heart of Darkness by Josef Conrad, The Tiger by John Vaillant, The Immense Journey by Loren Eisley, Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood, Rilke poetry, In the Shadow of Man by Jane Goodall, Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.
- Heart of Darkness.
- The Shakespeare one.
- A tiny William Morris book.
- An old print of One Hundred Years of Solitude.
- basically what I answered to “the most frequent book type” question
