Book Meme

I got tagged by Esther a little while back and am finally getting around to it (nice sort of thing to work on as I'm sick in bed with a sinus infection). I've done this meme once before (quite awhile back I think!) so these are obviously not the only possible answers to the questions for me! :)

One book that changed your life: (even though I haven't finished it yet) - Jesus of Nazareth by Pope Benedict XVI. There are so many things I will never be able to think about the same way again - and that's a good thing! I'm hoping to post on one of these very soon. I've been thinking about it a lot lately. Although it has to do with other things as well, one aspect I'm particularly interested in is its connection to the idea of friendship.

One book that you’ve read more than once: Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh

One book you’d want on a desert island: Don Quixote (because maybe I'd actually have time to re-read this - I wrote my senior thesis at TAC on this book)

One book that made you laugh: The Man Who Was Thursday by G.K. Chesterton

One book that made you cry: The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

One book that you wish had been written: The Lady of Fatima by Tomie de Paola

One book that you wish had never been written: Hop on Pop

One book you’re currently reading: We Look for a Kingdom by Carl Sommer

One book you're planning on reading: The Apostles by Pope Benedict XVI and all of those audiences that follow in which he relates thoughts about other early figures of the Church.

I tag Mary from Letters to Daddy, if she'd like to do the meme too. Anyone else interested is also tagged. :)

So, what is wrong with Hop on Pop?
