Screaming MeMe or Handy Says "Read a Book!"

That pontificating picklefaced Picard! First he stiffs me on my payment for performing at the Ten Forward, then he sticks me with this! Very well, when life hands you Naktarian lemons you make Naktarian lemonade.

Number of books I own: I dunno, lots. Between my wife and I, we have more than I could guess. Add the boxes of comic books in my basement from my misspent youth, and you have a few decades worth of reading material (had I known what line of work I would be getting into, I would have trained more).

The last book I bought: Star Wars NJO, the Unifying Force.

The last book that I read: If You Love a Bear, to my three-year-old daughter.

Five books that mean a lot to me: Of Mice and Men. The first book assigned to me in high school that I read entirely from cover to cover. I've read it several times since, it is a very powerful book.

Tales of The Unexpected. A great book of short stories. One of the authors is just an amazing man. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1413718248/qid=1116986140/sr=1-3/ref=sr_1_3/104-5078466-6830324?v=glance&s=books

Guess How Much I Love You. One of my favorites to read to my girl.

Margaret Weis' Star of the Guardian and Mag Force 7 series. Two separate series, really. Star of the Guardian is a great adventure, Star Wars fans should enjoy it. Mag Force 7 takes is about a mercenary team set in the same universe. I know this is a cop out, I am including 8 books here.

Confederacy of Dunces. I just started this, this is one of my wife's favorites. I included it so I look a bit more intellectual.

It's hard to come up with a list of seven, there are lots more, How Much For Just the Planet?; Ramones, An American Band; from OSS to the Green Berets; Bart Simpson's Guide to Life; Tales From the Chicago Bears Sidelines are but a few.

He winds up, the throw! The Screaming MeMe lands over at Angel (Superhero)'s blog!

Sorry about that. When you insulted Guinan in Ten Forward, she suggested you to be given the MeMe.

Have you ever met an Andoraian Rochned? They are a loyal, smart species with a lot of personality.
