Booktagged: I’m it

My friend The Atavist has tagged me in some booktag thing making the rounds across the internet faster than a Star Wars bootleg. Maybe one day Sieg will notice I’ve long since changed the name of my blog from Blah Blah Blog to Under The Radar 😉

At any rate, here is my book tag thing:

Number of books I own: A lot. At least a few hundred and when I figure the boxes in storage it may go over a thousand. I come from a long line of bookworms and now that I’m married to another one, it makes for lots of books piling up around the house. Most of mine are non-fiction, economics, history, futurism, social issues, technology, culture.

Last book I bought: I go on binges. If I’m logged into Amazon, look out. Although I think the last one I grabbed was the Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil. I’m about halfway through (watch this space for my review).

Last book I read: I just finished Leading at the Speed of Growth: Journey from Entrepreneur to CEO and recently finished my friend Jim Carroll’s What I Learned From Frogs In Texas.

5 books that mean a lot to me: Here’s a few I remember devouring more than once over the years, off the top of my head (since I can’t see my bookshelves from here) In no particular order:

* Rees-Mogg and Davidson’s The Sovereign Individual
* Alvin Toffler’s Future Shock
* Financial Reckoning Day
* Jame’s Gleick’s Chaos
* Colin Wilson’s The Occult

And 5 other bloggers I have to now “tag”:

*Ross Rader
*Rick Segal, Post Money Value
*Jim Carroll
*and my bandmates Noise, and Mark Collins.
