Forgive me for not linking. Google is your friend.
1. One Book That Changed Your Life --
The Preaching Life by Barbara Brown Taylor. It was like, "Whoa, I can do this even though I don't have it all figured out?"
2. One Book That You've Read More Than Once --
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle. Love conquers all. And I think Margaret/Meg Murry (O'Keefe), affectionately known as Meglet, is a wonderful feisty character (at least in that book, so I hear--I haven't branched out beyond WIT and Wind in the Door).
3. One Book You'd Want on a Desert Island --
Only one? I guess my Norton Anthology of English lit. And the Bible with my Greek Lexicon and the BDB. </geek> Maybe I would finally get Hebrew if I had no distractions other than coconuts and ocean waves.
4. One Book That Made You Laugh --
Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Son's First Year by Anne Lamott made me laugh and sigh with relief.
5. One Book That Made You Cry --
The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd. No, it wasn't as good as Secret Life of Bees. Yes the infidelity was troubling. But when I reached the point where I realized, Oh my God, why didn't anyone tell me this is a book about fathers and daughters, I was a big blubbery mess.
6. One Book You Wish Had Been Written --
Right now? The book I'm writing. It's fun and challenging, and I'm enjoying the process, but it sure will be nice to be on the other side of it, since I'm still not sure whether I can pull it off.
7. One Book That You Wish Had Never Been Written --
Hmm. Mein Kampf?
8. One Book You're Currently Reading --
The Suburban Christian by Hsu (I think). It is really interesting sociology of the suburbs and takes on the spiritual implications of commuter culture, homogeneous communities, and so on. We are SO going to study this at Suburban Pres.
9. One Book You've Been Meaning to Read --
One book? Bwahahahaha!!!!
Hmm. There are quite a few works of literature that I just happened to miss, even though I was an English major. Like most of Jane Austen. How did that happen? I don't know. I can't pick.
10. I'm supposed to tag five people.
Urgh. If you feel called to it, go crazy.
