One Book Meme

First of all, let me start by saying that I have no idea what the rules are for a meme, so there's a good chance that I'm not doing this right.

But.... I was entertained by THIS POST and thought I'd give it a go.

One book you're currently reading-- I am sadly between books. Who knows what I'll pick up next.

One book that changed your life-- Um.... honestly.... The Book of Mormon is all I can think of.

One book you’d want on a deserted island-- you cannot honestly expect me to choose just one! That would be cruel and unusual! I'd definitely need both of Lisa Shearin's, Deanna Raybourn's, and all of Tasha Alexander's.... At the very least.

One book you’ve read more than once-- Magic Lost, Trouble Found. But you already knew that.

One book you’ve never been able to finish-- I can actually count on one hand the books I've never finished. The Hunchback of Notre Dame is one of them. (Granted, I think I was 11 or 12 when I tried it....)

One book that made you laugh-- Eats, Shoots and Leaves.

One book that made you cry-- I very very rarely cry at books or movies, but Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince did it.

One book you keep rereading-- I reread a lot. I've read the books of The Work and the Glory at least 3 times each.

One book you’ve been meaning to read-- The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson. I've checked it out more than once....

One book you believe everyone should read-- I think everyone should read a little Dante.

Grab the nearest book. Open it to page 56. Find the fifth sentence--
"Maeve turned her head, said sharply, "Be merciful to her. You at least were loved."
-- The Bell at Sealey Head by Patricia A. McKillip

Wow, I'm really bad at picking just one for anything.....
