Book Meme

I've seen this going around a lot lately, and was just tagged!


1. One book that changed your life:

Maybe an odd choice and not the most significant book I've ever read, but the info and timing of Mary Pride's original Big Book of Homeschooling which I read in 10th grade pointed me in a whole new direction.

2. One book that you’ve read more than once:
Like many bloggers, I’ve read a lot of books more than once! But ones I return to at least a couple of times a decade are the Anne books by L. M. Montgomery.

3. One book you’d want on a desert island:
Bible, definitely. I know some people are listing one book other than the Bible, but I can't imagine being stranded without the Psalms.

4. One book that made you laugh:

Operating Instructions, Anne Lamott

5. One book that made you cry:
Little Pilgrim's Progress, read aloud to the boys

6. One book that you wish had been written:
Children in the Covenant: The Theological, Philosophical, and Practical Implications

7. One book you wish had never been written:

I've seen Babywise listed more than any other single title. *L* But I'll still join in wishing Gary Ezzo had never opened a word doc.

8. One book you’re currently reading:
Hubby's military sci-fi manuscript, reading and editing.

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read:
Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress Free Productivity
David Allen. More.

10. Now tag five people:

Barbara Curtis (I know you're busy writing, but being the book-lover you are. . . well, I wanted to invite you to join in!) Barbara takes a break from her current book to blog with us about books!

Carmon Friedrich, another bibliophile (I didn't see that you had done this one yet.)

The College Girls ('Cause we all know college girls like to hit the books.)
Woohoo, Dr. Camille joins in!

Book-lovin' Becca (Maybe books will get you back to blogging!)

The Seven Realms (This is one I think would be really interesting!) And he doesn't disappoint!

"How to Survive on a Desert Island"
4. One book that made you laugh:
"The Grapes of Wrath"
5. One book that made you cry:
"Moby Dick" because I thought it would never end.
6. One book that you wish had been written:
"Travails of a Childless Woman" by whatever creature birthed Jesse Jackson
7. One book you wish had never been written:
"My Life" by Bill Clinton
8. One book you’re currently reading:

You're invited to participate in "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective New School Years" to encourage new homeschoolers or those needing a pep talk for the new year!

Just share what works in your home,,,,we're always learning from one another.

Trying hard to figure out how to do this trackback thing, but I STILL don't get it. Anyway, here is my meme:
