I'm it!

I don't know HOW this happened. I'm simply sitting here. Minding my own business. When WHAM! Demented Michelle puts the whammy on me. Oh, she is so not right.
Okay. Here goes:

Total number of books: Used to be in the thousands. The losing them part of the equation is rather painful, and I'm not sharing the details. Now I might have a couple of hundred.

Last books I bought: I think it was the "Key" series by Nora Roberts. I also picked up a couple of "Blaze" books in the bargain bin. Sidenote: I loathed both of them.

On the "to buy" list: More JD Robb books. Any and all of them. Marjorie Liu-I think it's called "Tiger Eyes." Harry Potter-Here I come. I may see about investing some money in a few books by the authors' blogs I read. I'm really looking forward to Allison Brennan's trilogy. Check out the "Writeminded" blog.

Last books I read: I read "Insomnia" by Stephen King again. That makes my umpteenth time. My own. *laughing* I had to edit the first one. Somehow, it was SO much more fun writing the dang thing. I read quite a few YA while I was doing the Book Fair at the chicken's school in February. Oh. And I read an e-book I won at a chat. I have a book by Suzanne McMinn, but I haven't had the chance to pop it open yet.

Influential authors:
Stephen King: He's the master.
Erma Bombeck: If I could string together words like she did and make people commiserate and laugh, I'd have it all.
Nora Roberts: I want to be able to engage the reader such as she does. The romances have lively characters and great dialogue.
JD Robb: She can create a future world and characters so real I feel as if I'm with them. Amazing talent and stories.
James Patterson: Fast-paced dialogue and story. Love writer/reader engagement.
Edith Wharton: Clever. Very clever.
Clive Barker: His descriptions give me nightmares. He is master of setting and mind games. Awesome author.
Jude Devereaux: One of my first loves. She led me down the romance road and showed me how good it could be.

I'm tagging some people. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

New creative excercise traveling over the blogs? I've been tagged, too!

I've already been tagged, but I haven't gotten around to posting the stuff yet. Sigh.

Anyway, I LOVED Nora's Key series. I bow down to her greatness.

I think these are called memes on the live journal thingy.

Shows you I should visit more often -- I googled myself and saw this post! Thank you for the support, I truly appreciate it.

We have a lot in common. I learned so much just by reading Stephen King and Nora Roberts, and the JD Robb books are my absolute favorite.
