This has been going around for the last couple of days. Shamelessly I tagged myself, because... (nobody tagged me) well, there's no reason, but I did it anyway.
1) One book that changed your life?
Anne of Green Gables (and the series) in a way that I could see myself starting to (attempt to) write stories, and matchmake people ;)
2. One book you have read more than once?
To kill a Mockingbird. Love the book to bits. I've read it again and again and again....(And all the Harry Potters- up till the Half blood Prince)
3. One book you would want on a desert island?
The catcher in the Rye. If I'm alone (quite normal on a desert(ed) island, I'll need a conversation partner, and I'm pretty sure that Holden Caulfield will rise to the occasion)
4. One book that made you laugh?
God Knows by Joseph Heller - I still think about it (and laugh) :)
5. One book that made you cry?
Cry... as in buckets upon buckets of tears - no.(not that i'm an insensitive git, but due to my preference for comedy) But I got pretty emotional reading The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinback. I just remembered: What Katy Did by Susan Coolidge.
6. One book you stayed up all night to finish?
The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy (oh, and by the way, I cried while reading it the 2nd time... why is that, I wonder )
7. One book that took you too long to read?
A town like Alice by Nevil Shute. I was 8 when I started and finished it when I was 13 with the first chapter repeated countless number of times throughout that period. And yet, there are about 4 unread pages due to some printing error... :(
8. One book you are currently reading?
The Public conffessions of a Middle aged woman by Sue Townsend. I desperately need the humour
9. One book you have been meaning to read?
Any of Terry Pratchett's books.
Highly recommended, but... haven't got hold of any yet
10. Now tag five people.
Consider yourself tagged if you bothered reading this post till the very end ;)
