1. What is the last book you read, the book you are currently reading and the next book you plan to read:Never Eat Alone - Keith Ferrazzi
Chainfire - Terry Goodkind
Not sure what I am reading next...
2. In no particular order, what are your five favorite works of fiction:5. Who are your five favorite non-fiction writers:The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Lord of the Rings (three books, but one story) - J. R. R. Tolkein
Atlas Shrugged - Ayn Rand
Dune - Frank Herbert
??? (maybe Shogun by James Clavel)
3. In no particular order, what are your five favorite non-fiction books:See my business book list.
4. Who are your five favorite fiction writers:
William Shakespeare (I am not being pedantic, but if you characterize "favorite" as having a lot of stories you like to read over and over again...)
??? (I'm having trouble with the fifth. It sort of depends when in my life you are referring to since at one point I really liked Asimov, Bradbury, King, Clancy and others, but now I hardly read them at all).
I can't really answer this one. Non-fiction writers rarely write more than one well-known work, and I don't read that many non-fiction books outside of business.
6. What book[s] (other than Scripture) have you read more than once:I am now passing the meme over to Jim and Dave, and of course anyone else can join and let everyone know in the comment section.This is too long to list. I have read my favorite books more than once, plus over a dozen novels I really enjoyed that didn't make the top 5 list. There are also a couple of "classics" that are in my top 10, like Paradise Lost and Moby Dick that I really enjoy and reread every few years.7. What autographed books do you own, and who signed them:
The Naked Empire - Terry Goodkind
Havana - Steven Hunter
