Tag I'm It, Huh?

Okay, I'm not really sure how this is supposed to work, but here goes.


1. How many books do you own?

I have no Idea. It's gotta be a couple thousand, between my collection and my wife's. My place basically looks like a library with junked cars in the yard. My personal collection includes a lot of paperbacks, A lot of biographies, fantasy - science fiction, and murder mysteries. ( Whatever they had at the truck stop...)

2. What is the last book you read?

Let's see now...That would be "The Communist Manifesto" by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. (By the way, Mark, thanks a pantload for making me answer THIS question NOW.) The book that I am currently reading (again) is "1984" by George Orwell.

3. What is the last book you purchased?

The last book that I purchased was "Chilton's Auto Repair Manual for the Pontiac Firebird -1982 to1994". (Once again, timing is everything... Thanks a lot!!)

4.Name 5 fiction books that mean a lot to you.

Like some other people that have answered these questions, I tend to read books in series. I have read the entire "Dune" series by Frank Herbert and Brian Herbert w/Kevin J. Anderson. I have also read all of the "Mayfair Witches" and "Vampire Chronicles" books by Anne Rice.
Another series of books that I love dearly and believe that everyone should read is "The Chronicles of Narnia" by C.S. Lewis. Also the" Harry Potter" books are cool, as well as"The Hobbitt" and the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy.


Now I am supposed to tag 5 other people, Right?
Okay toad, rich bachelor, o-likewhoa, justlikehim and Your yiddish bubby, you're up.

I must say, I am kinda curious...

This was fun!

Well, I think it is important to know the belief structures of your opponents...

rich bachelor said...

Thanks for the nod. I'll be answering these over at my place.

rich bachelor said...

I uh, take it you hadn't been over to my place before?

alaletos said...

so am I supposed to answer these questions to ????

tugboatcapn said...

Yes, Bachelor, I had been over there. I just hadn't seen that particular post until this weekend. I think it fell through the cracks when I was having my computer virus problem.

tugboatcapn said...

And Yes, AJ, you are. (I mean we're not going to beat you if you don't, we're just curious...)

So, I'm just curious:; Are you a day-tripper or a long-hauler? (Just wonderin' what kinda lingo to use with ya, 10-4?)

My guess is thatcher close to the Mississippi or Missouri or Ohio or some other big river, elsin' you wouldn't call yerself a "tugboat" man. Might be a waggoneer or somethin' instead. ???

Well, ER, I'm a day-tripper now. I was a long hauler (random dispatch 48 state and Canada Flat Bedder) for several years, but then I met my wife, and all of a sudden the OTR thing wouldn't work anymore.
The "Tugboatcapn" handle started as a joke between my sister and I. I wish it were more exciting and romantic than that, but alas, I am what I am...

Just don't call me "Good Buddy" and we will get along just fine... ;~}
