the book meme

Here's to the book meme!

One book that changed your life: DragonDrums by Anne McCaffrey. I discovered it as a paperback in Jr High. Peimur helped me think that I might not be the only one in the world that felt like I did.

One book that you’ve read more than once: Tell Me Something Happy Before I Go to Sleep by Joyce Dunbar. One of the few children's book I really haven't minded reading over and over and over and over to my children.

One book you’d want on a desert island: Just one ?!?!?!. Well, if limited, hmmm, the 7th Harry Potter book!

One book that made you laugh: I take my religion seriously by Charles Schultz. I really love the Peanuts but this book shows Schultz's humor in a different hilarious way.

One book that made you cry: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Damn I hate death.

One book you wish you had written: A Circle of Quiet by Madeline L'Engle or The Summer of the Great-grandmother or Two-Part Invention or The Irrational Season. The family connections are so nurturing and Madeline L'Engle's faith is profound, especially in the face of reasonable doubt.

One book you wish had never been written: Well, it's not evil but how I hated reading it: Conjectures and Refutations by Karl Popper.

One book you’re currently reading: Who reads one at a time!?? The ones at home (because summer classes are finished and fall classes haven't started) Dragon's Fire by Anne & Todd McCaffrey; The Contemporaries Meet the classics on Prayer compiled by Leonard Allen; At Risk by Patricia Cornwell; and Unlucky in Law by Perri O'Shaughnessy. Next week I'll start on books for fall classes :)

One book you’ve been meaning to read: Those books for fall and Predator by Patricia Cornwell await and Harry Potter 7 when it's finally published

Yea for the HP and Anne McCaffrey comments. I'm in the middle of Robin Hobb...are you familiar with her?

I've actually never heard of Robin Hobb. But I'm always looking for another book to read :) Tell me

Thanks! I didn't realize that the McCaffrey's had collaborated on another Dragonrider's book.

And thanks for your blog!
