Books and Hat Racks

I was tagged by the Lemon Stand, Lemonade made Daily for a Meme called, A Request For Using The Head For Something Other Than A Hat Rack. I’ve been over to Lemon Stand for a few weeks now, one of my newest additions to my blogroll. She’s a military wife and mother of four daughters. For some reason, three boys sounds easier than four girls! Ack!

So my answers are as follows:

1) A book that changed my life:

There aren’t any books that have changed my life. People and events have, but not any books. There are books I’ve enjoyed the hell out of… but no major life altering experiences.

2) A book I've read more than once:

None. I can’t watch movies over and over and I can’t read books over and over.

3) A book I'd take to a desert island:

Mmm, this is tough. I have about five favorite books that I’ve blogged on, but I think I’d have to take a book on HOW to survive on a desert island. Practicality must set in when planning for such events!

4) A book that made me laugh:

Life of Pi. I laughed a lot with that book. Good Grief.

5) A book that made me cry:

I think all my favorite books have made me cry. I think that’s why they’re my favorites… I completely bond with the characters and what happens to them. I laugh and cry. Prince of Tides, A Prayer for Owen Meany, East of Eden. I think I recall all of them had that effect on me, but I’m not sure.

6) A book I wish had been written:

Wow. I have no clue. I’ve never wished a book to be written.

7) A book that should never have been written:

I’m trying to think of the worst book I’ve ever read, and there have been many, but I intentionally blocked them out of my memory. If I truly hate a book, I won’t finish it. I used to feel compelled to finish anything I started, but no more.

8) A book I'm currently reading:

The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice

9) A book I'm planning to read:

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

10) Five people I'll send these questions on to: VW, Army Wife, Tink, Pensacola Titan (my blogson who has not been blogging!), and just to annoy the stew out of him, Eric. Heh.

Thank you so much for taking the time to do this! I think only one person so far hasn't done it and of those that did, I WAS RIGHT! You are all sooooo different. I wouldn't want to get tagged often but it IS great for entertainment value every once in a while.

BTW, I was going to tag Army Wife but she was on vacation and I didn't want to bother her with it. So glad to see she will still get the opportunity when she gets back. ::grin

for the 4 girls versus 3 boys? I think I'll take the sister has sent down my nephews to visit on occasion and I still can't get used to the whole toilet lid and 'adjusting' thing. :o)
