My friend Janelle tagged me for this meme last month. This summer has been crazy for me, but finally I've managed to follow up on it.
Because I'd never heard of a meme before (I know, so behind the times), here's a definition.
1. One book that changed your life:
I honestly don't know what to say here.
2. One book you have read more than once?
This is hard…
ok, one of the many, chosen at random:
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.
I try to reread all the Harry Potter books whenever a new one comes out.
3. One book you would want on a desert island?
Ok, something that would keep my busy for a while...
The Complete Works of Shakespeare, edited by David Bevington
4. One book that made you cry?
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
I have a long history with this book.
5. One book that made you laugh?
Silk by Alessandro Baricco. OK, I haven't actually read this book yet, but I was cracking up last night when I was talking to my mom about it. I loaned it to her and apparently there is a section in it that is quite pornographic. My mom wasn't sure what she should write in her journal entry.
6. One book you wish had been written?
Another novel by Arundhati Roy
7. One book you wish had never had been written?
Um... Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler
8. One book you are currently reading?
The Egyptian by Mika Waltari. I'm actually working on a few different books, but this one will take the longest because hubby and I are listening to it on audio.
9. One book you have been meaning to read?
Here's one I've been meaning to read recently:
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. Luckily I scheduled it for our September book club selection so I'll be able to read it soon.
10. Now tag five people
I have no idea whether any of these people have already done this or not :) ...
Enza, Helly, PepperVL, WestofMars, and zzz (even though he doesn't have a blog because I'd be interested in seeing what he has to say)
