11 Books

Oh, this is so sad. I was tagged and didn't even realize it! :0) Sorry Jen!! I just read your first sentence and all your answers and then I immediately started thinking of what my answers would be, not even realizing I had been tagged! I know, I'm slow. I often wonder if I was supposed to be mentally challenged and God accidentally added a well-developed brain at the last minute because he thought I was someone else. I don't know. This will be rough for me, because I'm not a reader and apparently, I don't have a huge blog social life. But we'll see. I tag Linlee aka Little Miss Sassy, Twisted Sister, and Polly at Home Ec. for Grown Ups. If y'all don't want to do it or can't or think I'm annoying for tagging you, then, I'll just deal with the bad luck - I'd never know the difference! :O)

But, here it goes:

1. ONE BOOK THAT CHANGED YOUR LIFE?
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

2. ONE BOOK YOU HAVE READ MORE THAN ONCE?
The Night by Elie Wiesel

3. ONE BOOK YOU WOULD WANT ON A DESERT ISLAND?
The Book of Survival by Anthony Greenback

4. ONE BOOK THAT MADE YOU LAUGH?
Falling Up by Shel Silverstein

5. ONE BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY?
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

6. ONE BOOK YOU WISH YOU HAD WRITTEN?
The DaVinci Code (do you know how rich and stupid I'd be at the same time?)

7. ONE BOOK YOU WISH HAD NEVER BEEN WRITTEN?
I'll go out on a limb here and say any of those sex ed. books that pediatricians gave your parents to give to you - oh were those pitiful or what? Yeah, like I learned about sex from a paperback book with about 15 pages in it.

8. ONE BOOK YOU ARE CURRENTLY READING?
Inside Delta Force by Eric L. Haney, Command Sergeant Major, USA (ret.)
This is the book that the show The Unit is based off.

9. ONE BOOK YOU HAVE BEEN MEANING TO READ?
The Call of the Wild by Jack London (I never had to read it, go figure).

10. ONE BOOK YOU'RE GLAD YOU OWN?
Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak

11. ONE BOOK THAT MUST BE READ ALOUD?
Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein

I adored Shel Silverstein as a child - I could have read those two books (the ones mentioned in #4 and #11) a million times. I might have to go buy those books to make sure I have them for my kids.

I just wanna say that this was very hard for me, because I'm not a reader (I mean, I read magazines - look at magazines), but I never was a big reader - I get a headache too easily.

I always like Silverstein's The Giving Tree best. But Where the Sidewalk Ends is second. :)
