World Book Day  
Ooh, I like this meme! via altariel and others.

The book I am reading: The Book of Dave by Will Self
The book I am writing: I wish :) I am comtemplating writing some more for my dark_fest fic though.
The book I love most: Lord of the Rings, I suspect, but there are others that chase it closely.
The last book I received as a gift: A Companion to Wolves by Sarah Monette and Elizabeth Bear - fantastic book! What McCaffrey chickened out of writing with her dragons. Not for the faint hearted though.
The last book I gave as a gift: The Homeward Bounders by Diana Wynne Jones
The nearest book on my desk: Matter by Iain M. Banks

I did like the book, but the ending irritated me, as Bank's ending do tend to do - but I can't tell you why wihout spoiling it for you! Suffice to say he's upseting another storytelling trope that I personally don't agree with. Hmm. Can't think of a better non-spoilery way to put it, I'm afraid...
