One Book Meme

Found this one over at Circle of Quiet.

1. One book that changed your life: For some reason, this was a hard question. I will say A Pocketful of Pinecones by Karen Andreola.

2. One book that you’ve read more than once: Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

3. One book you’d want on a desert island: A complete volume of all the works of William Shakespeare

4. One book that made you laugh: Why is this a hard one? I guess I have read too many to pick just one easily. How 'bout the funny bits in Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain.

5. One book that made you cry (and it wasn't necessarily in a good way, although I do think this was a good story): The Wedding by Nicolas Sparks

6. One book that you wish had been written: A memoir written by either or both of Robin William's or Jonathon Winter's mothers, on how to successfully raise a very kinethetic Boy to adulthood without squelching their weirdly wonderful traits.

7. One book that you wish had never been written: She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb. Too close to home, too sad, hard to read, yet I couldn't put it down. Left a bad taste in my mouth for months. I am following the example set at A Circle of Quiet, and not linking to this one.

8. One book you’re currently reading: Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read: The Iliad by Homer

10. Tag five others: I won't tag, but you are all invited to the party. Let me know if you blog this, or leave it in the comments.

I feel compelled to add this question!
11. One book you just couldn't put down till it was done: East by Edith Pattou

Morning LB,

Just a note to let you know how much I loved Pocketful of Pinecones. The suggested reading in the back of the book is a great resource too. I've been enjoying some of the movies she recommends like the Girl from the Limber lost and Circle of Bright water.

How do you want to handle my return of your book? I know you said your schedule is prosperous for the near term. Will you be in Crossroads any time soon? I could make sure Michael has your book handy for a return handoff, or we can arrange to drop it by your house when out and about, see your garden, or have you up for a wood cutting activity! Although, I sprained the heck out of my ankle, am in an aircast for 6 weeks, so not sure how much help I'll be cutting and stacking wood for awhile ~ argh.....

Thanks again for sharing,
P
