Total number of books owned:
Somewhere over 1900, including a hundred or so recipe books, but not including several boxes of books in the garage.
Last book bought:
Fermat’s Last Theorem by Simon Singh. Interesting read, more history than mathematics and just fine for a plane trip.
Last book read
Err… Fermat’s Last Theorem by Simon Singh.
Before that I’d just finished Sherri S. Tepper’s Sideshow
/0553762893/qid=1119131393/sr=8–2/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl14/002–2888801-2480828?v=glance&s=books&n=507846, third in a set of stories that explore the moral tension between society’s rights and individual’s rights. Tepper’s other books in this set (Grass/055376246X/qid=1119131946/sr=8–1/ref=pd_bbs_ur_1/002–2888801-2480828?v=glance&s=books&n=507846 and Raising The Stones) are also very readable.

Five people? That’s a lot. You do realise that if all five participate, and they each tag five people who all participate, and so on, and so on, within 14 generations the entire population of the world will have done this survey?
