The Ambler Warning
Demon Seed
The Last Templar
The Sanctuary
Death Match
Resident Evil - The Umbrella Conspiracy
Resident Evil - Caliban Cove
Arranging and Orchestration
Music Theory

I used to have a crap ton of Goosebumps books as a kid, but my parents sold them at a yard sale last August. I of course have more books back at my actual house.
I died, but then I got better. Kinda.

I like how chainmail is casually thrown in with knitting there. Like, "oh, you know, sculpting, knitting, chainmail, some photohraphy. You know, usual everyday stuff." :zomg:


edit:

Ohhh, I also forgot before,but I have a copy of H.P. Lovecraft's Necronomicon. But I am am indefinitely borrowing it from my friend, so I don't "technically" own it.

A late, late, late reply but I just wanted to say I used to have most (if not all) the Goosebumps books back when I was a kid too. Man, those were some great memories. We ended up donating them all to a library. Hopefully some kids got use out of them.

That Goosebumps series actually got translated to a ton of languages, including Dutch.
I had a few, but I liked a domestic series named De Griezelbus (Wiki to a movie about the series, the main books don't seem to have an English wiki.)
The literal translation is "The Horror Bus".
I used to have all of them, some even signed by the writer.

As for books I currently own...
Moderate amounts of manga and the manga/anime related prose "Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - The Lost Memory"
The rest is all of educational nature and not very riveting to read.

My parents own a ton of books, including the Harry Potter series, Lord of the Rings and whatnot. But it's all translated while I prefer to read English books in their original form.

I haven't been buying as many books lately. For the Sookie books I've just been borrowing Bri's. Aside from those, the only two books I can think of that I've bought since the last time I posted has been:

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

and

A Game of Thrones: Book One of A Song of Ice and Fire
