I’ve Been Tagged

Sweet Purgy Wurgy had tagged me after being himself tagged by Jackos and Jakos has been tagged herself by bla bla bla who was tagged by bla bla, and don’t ask me what all that means because honestly I have no idea. All I could understand is that it’s a cyber thingy where whoever is tagged is supposed to have a post about the following:

Number of books I own:
Very hard to tell, I don’t think I could count them, let’s see; I have three bookshelves of the size (1m X 2.20m) + two book shelves of the size (3.5m X 2.20m) full of books, some of them overlapping, not counting the ones which are scattered in all my kids rooms which were borrowed from me. Now you do the estimate. Oh and I did not include the ones invading my sleeping quarters nor the storage.

Last book I read:
Love, Sex & Tragedy by Simon Goldhill; it’s about how the ancient world shapes our modern life.

Five books that meant a lot ( no particular order):
Actually there are more than five and you can find some of them on my Favorite books listed on my profile, add to that
1- Love, Sex & Tragedy by Simon Goldhill.
2- Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
3- The Pilgrimage by Paulo Coelho
4- Meditation; monks of the Ramakrishna Order by Ramakrishna Vedanta Center
5- Your Erroneous Zones by Dr Wayne W. Dyer
6- Climbing Chamundi Hill by Ariel Glucklich
7- The Tibetan Art of Positive Thinking by Christopher Hansard
8- An Introduction to Classical Islamic Philosophy by Oliver Leaman

All of the mentioned books above made me halt and ponder, I still go back to them once and a while.

Readings that I did not finish yet; God so many:
1- Eleven Minutes by Paulo Coelho
2- The Road to Delphi; the Life and Afterlife of Oracles by Michael Wood
3- The Bible Unearthed; Archeology’s new vision of ancient Israel and the origin of its sacred texts by Israel Finkelstein and Neil Asher Silberman
4- Creative Methodology; the Masks of God by Joseph Campbell
5- Gardens Horizontals; the lives and legends of four nineteenth century courtesans by Virginia Rounding
6- Aquinas by Brian Davies
7- Philosophy and Religion; from Plato to postmodernism by Max Charlesworth
8- Moses and Akhenaten; the secret history of Egypt at the time of the Exodus by Ahmed Osman
9- Anatomy of the Spirit; the seven stages of power and healing by Caroline Myss, PHD
10- A Woman Speaks; Anais Nin edited by Evelyn J. Hinz

The book I’m reading now is Once and Always by Judith Mcnaught recommended by Jackos and I’m almost half way through

And finally; I hereby tag Jewaira, DJ and Tantalize 🙂

PS;
Purgy: all the above mentioned did not include poetry books which are my constant companions :p
Jakos: I agree with you; Jason Fielding is hot, and you know what? I know a person who fits his description exactly except for the title and the fact that he is single 😉

    Hardship only makes man stronger, in novels we love them, but in real life! Hmmmmm, they’re very hard to deal with.

    Getting to discover the secret power of the East? Heheheee, well, I recommend Love, Sex & Tragedy; a synonymous in Greek and Roman civilization, I was in awe all the way through this book, a real eye opener to many things we consider abnormal today 😉
