The book I am currently reading: Only one? I'm reading Bujold's Cetaganda, Death's Acre by Bass & Jefferson, Evolution's Rainbow by Roughgarden, The Voyage of Night Shining White by Roberson, Terminus by Howse, and several others.
The book I am currently writing: Not happening right now.
The book I love most: When it comes to books I am a serial lover. There are some that will forever hold a place in my mind's heart, but the book I love most is usually the book I'm loving to read at any given time.
The last book I received as a gift: Common Sense on Mutual Funds by Bogle. I'm even making myself read it! Haven't learned anything yet except that no one seems to have proofread the "10 Years Later" updated sections.
The last book I gave as a gift: A Small Furry Prayer by Kotler, or A Field Guide to Surreal Botany from Two Cranes Press. Probably the former.
The nearest book on my desk: I'm about the same distance from The Brains of Rats by Blumlein and Reinventing the Bazaar by McMillan.
