Terri, of http://www.islandwriter.net/ tapped me for this meme about books. This kind of thing is hard for me, because I have read many books over the years and it is difficult to narrow it down to one choice for each category. But I gave it some thought - and here it is:
One book that changed my life . . .Anthony Adverse by Hervey Allen
One book that I've read more than once . . .The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann
One book I'd want on a deserted island . . .The Encyclopedia Britannica (any volume) and/or The Bible.
One book that made me laugh . . . anything by Fannie Flagg.
One book that made me cry . . . Marley and Me by John Grogan (Terri and I share that one.)
One book I wish I'd written . . .I wish I had written any book - but I'll say Cane River by Lalita Tademy.
One book I wish had never been written . . .all books have some value to someone!
One book I'm currently reading . . . The Hundred Secret Senses by Amy Tan (the print is so small I am having a hard time with it. I always finish a book if I start it - but this one may get tossed aside).
One book I've been meaning to read . . .the latest James Patterson book.... Judge & Jury.
So there you are. I must admit that if you ask me again in 3 months to do this meme, you might get very different answers for most of them........LOL
