Book meme!

Call me a geek, but I think these meme thingies rock:

1. One book that changed your life: The Holy Bible

2. One book that you’ve read more than once: The entire Belgariad/Mallorean series by David and Leigh Eddings

3. One book you’d want on a desert island: Any/all of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

4. One book that made you laugh: How to Talk Minnesotan

5. One book that made you cry: While the Locust Slept

6. One book that you wish had been written: How to Find a Job that Pays $20/hr. to Sit on a Beach and Sip Little Umbrella Drinks. Written by me.

7. One book that you wish had never been written: quite a few forgettable Star Trek novels. Frequent response to the end of the book: "I wasted four hours on that?"

8. The book you are currently reading: The Power of a Praying Wife, Lucky

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read: God's Politics: Why the Right Gets it Wrong and the Left Doesn't Get It

10. Now tag five people: Gosh, I can think of a few, but who'll actually play with me? Carter, Ann?, Bossy,
Cliff,and Britmum
That should actually be a well rounded list of things that I will want to go read for myself after I see their ideas.

Geez, after reading the answer from the two babes above me, I'm kind of embarrased to have to pass on the meme.
I do a lot of reading but it always involves newspapers, magazines, or publications from the government about how to keep the money flowing to the county for different projects or the definition of the 56 acronyms used by homeland security. I am flattered that you think I can read. : }

OK, I'll bite --

1. The Chosen by Chaim Potok

2. A River Runs Through It by Norman McLean.

3. Devlin's Boatbuilding: How to Build Any Boat the Stitch-and-Glue Way by Sam Devlin

4. Many

5. I don't remember a book making me cry.

6. How to survive Wednesdays in Advanced Writing When Gette is sitting behind you.

7. The Heart Can be Filled Anywhere on Earth by Bill Holm. I really want to like this book. I really want to get into it and I just can't. No matter how many times I try. And it bugs me that I can't get into it.

8. I just finished Heat by Bill Buford - great book if you love Italian food. I'm about to start American Gospel: God, the Founding Fathers, and the Making of a Nation by John Meacham.

9. Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin is up after that.
