I have stolen a book thingy from Sarah, even though I wasn't tagged. :)
Total number of books in your house
That would be a lot. I have one full book case (3 long shelves) full, more books on a second bookcase in my bedroom and then the books that actually belong at home, but live in a box under my desk at work. Maybe 500 total?
Last book you bought
I went to Barnes & Noble a couple weeks ago and I picked up YaYa's in Bloom, A New Lu, and Confessions of Max Tivoli. I've finished them all.
Last book you read before reading this
List 5 or 6 books you read often or mean a lot to you
