Tag, I'm it

I just picked up another meme courtesy of Mushtaq,

1. Total number of books I've owned:

Overall, between textbooks and stuff I bought for my own enjoyment, probably close to a thousand. I refuse to count comic books on the grounds that the total number would scare me

2. Last book I bought:

Non school or comic related,

Steve Perry - 'Black Steel'

Aaron Mcgruder, Reginald Hudlin and Kyle Baker - 'Birth of a Nation'

I bought them together

3. Last book I read:

Jess O'Brien - Nei Jia Quan: Internal Martial Arts : Teachers of Tai Ji Quan, Xing Yi Quan, and Ba Gua Zhang

4. Five books that mean a lot to me:

(in no particular order)

Musashi - The Book of 5 Rings

David Eddings - Belgarath the Sorceror

Isaac Asimov - Caves of Steel

Ayi Kwei Armah - The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born

Richard Feynman - What Do You Care What Other People Think

I would pass this on to

Hi hows it going? I saw that you read my book. Cool, hope you liked it. Hows your training going? I just spent some time learning from this Taoist guy Share K Lew, he is 90 and has a lotta chi.

Luo De Xiu is coming to teach Xing Yi and Ba Gua in the SF Bay area this summer, so that's what I'm looking forward most. In the meantime me and my friends mostly do Ba Gua and Nei Gung practices in the backyard a few times a week.

Whenever I'm in Akron I visit Tony Yang, that guy has a lot of gung fu. You should check him out if you get a chance, real nice guy with serious skills.

Anyways, take care.
