Books Meme

Shsuya passed me this meme and here are my answers:

1) Total number of books I own:

Like Shsuya, I can't answer this. I have loads and can't possibly count. However, most of them are academic books.

2) The last book I bought:

The Glorious Qur'an by Ahmad Zidan and Dina Zidan

3) The last book I read:

Angels and Demons by Dan Brown

4) 5 books that mean alot to me:


This was quite tough as a lot of books made an impression on me. However, I will list the 5 books which really made an impression.

a) The Quran (c. 650) Translation by Yusuf Ali
Presented to me by my wife when we were still friends. My first step into Islam.

b) Victor Hugo's Les Misérables
Very touching.

c) Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre
Yeah! The main character is a lady. So what?

d) JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings Trilogy (actually that's three books, but I will count them as one. A bit of cheating Heh! Heh!)

e) I, Robot by Isaac Asimov. It is actually a collection of short stories. The famous 'Three Laws of Robotics' first appears in this book

5) Tag 5 people and have them fill this out on their blogs:

Sending this to Acat, Chics, Ezu, Ita and Lucia.
