Book Meme

So apparently I was tagged by Galant.
Let's see, it feels like cheating to answer the Bible to most of these (1, 3, 4, 5, 8), but I reserve the right to use it if I can't think of anything :P.

---

1. One book that changed your life.
The Sacred Romance, Brent Curtis and John Eldredge

2. One book you've read more than once.
Enchantment, Orson Scott Card

3. One book you'd want on a desert island.
I had a lot of choices for the previous question, books I've literally read 100's of times, but I'm not sure I could pick one (besides that answer in reserve) that would truly keep me for all time (or at least the piece of time that would include me implied by the question). So there's always the "useful" answer (ie SAS survival handbook) or the "humorous" answer (War and Peace - lots of pages to help start those fires).
So Bible first, if I can add another to take along: My Utmost for His Highest, Oswald Chambers. If I had to choose something of fiction, The Otherland series by Tad Williams; great storyline, epic reading, and a good deal of wilderness survival tips mixed in ;).

4. One book that made you laugh.
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams

5. One book that made you cry.
Wild at Heart, John Eldredge

6. One book you wish had been written.
The autobiography of Job.

7. One book you wish had never been written.
Wizard's First Rule, Terry Goodkind.

8. One book you're currently reading.
Knowing God, J. I. Packer

9. One book you've been meaning to read.
The Gospel According to Grace, Chuck Smith

10. Now tag 5 people.
Hmm, Galant tagged Jaclyn and me, that would be the two people I'm positive watch this space and blog... I suppose there are a few lurkers out there.

Well I'll tag: Gem, Michelle, and Gina. Then 2 tags go into the ether for lurkers or wanderers to grab (you can even comment anonymously if you want to maintain the mystery ;)).

I was just looking at Knowing God by Packer last night. I have not read it in years and was about to start it last night. Then, I thought, I need to finish the other three books I have started first... :-P
