Number of bookcases you own:
LIES. One wall of my bedroom (and it’s not a small room) has wall-to-wall, floor-to-floor shelves and then there’s a pile on the floor as well.
But the point is – NO BOOKCASES.
One book you’ve read multiple times:

Quote that inspires you:
“My heart is a traitor,” the boy said to the alchemist, when they had paused to rest the horses. “It doesn’t want me to go on.”
“That makes sense,” the alchemist answered. “Naturally it’s afraid that, in pursuing your dream, you might lose everything you’ve won.”
“Well, then, why should I listen to my heart?”
“Because you will never again be able to keep it quiet. Even if you pretend not to have heard what it tells you, it will always be inside you, repeating to you what you’re thinking about life and about the world.”
“You mean I should listen, even if it’s treasonous?”
“Treason is a blow that comes unexpectedly. If you know your heart well, it will never be able to do that to you. Because you’ll know its dreams and wishes, and will know how to deal with them. You will never be able to escape from your heart. So it’s better to listen to what it has to say. That way, you’ll never have to fear an unanticipated blow.
“My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer,” the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky.
“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams.”
Series that you started and need to finish:
Let’s see… I really want to finish the Throne of Glass series. Oh, and that’s it. God, I’m worse than I thought.

Your last bookish purchase:
I made a deal with myself in August that I wasn’t going to spend my birthday vouchers until I’d culled a decent amount of books from my shelves. I kind of have, and I feel like cheering myself up, so Monday is the day!
As of now though, my last purchase was A Little Course In Knitting, which is a D.K. book about… golf. Obviously.
Zzz snatcher- which book kept you up way late?:
Many. Many many many.
Most recently was probably The Lies of Locke Lamora though. It took forever to get into, but by three quarters of the way through, I absolutely had to know what happened.
