The book I am reading: Diaboliquement votre by Christopher Pike. I believe the English title was Scavenger Hunt. Edit: Oh, and I'm also reading Mrs Radcliffe's The Mysteries of Udolpho on the Great Books app on my iPod.
The book I love most: I love a lot of books, I can't pick just one, so here's a selection. The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, Cops and Robbers by Janet and Allan Ahlberg.
The last book I received as a gift: Mary Stewart's Merlin Trilogy, from Steph for Christmas
The last book I gave as a gift: The City and the City, China Mieville, for Steph for her birthday.
The nearest book: As it so often is, Programming Perl, 3rd Edition by Larry Wall, Tom Christiansen and Jon Orwant.
