Sandy tagged me to fill out this book questionnaire. I usually don't do this stuff but I'll fill it out because Sandy asked me to. :-)
- One book that changed your life? I found a copy of All You Ever Wanted to Know about Sex. . .But Were Afraid to Ask when I was in high school. I read it multiple times, and it set me straight on a lot of issues on which I had unanswered questions.
- One book you have read more than once? When I was young I used to read lots of books on car trips, and invariably I would bring along my brother's copy of The Cat fro Outer Space, so that's one. Another one is Douglas Adams Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which I used to read all the time. The only books I have read over and over lately are Tea Life, Tea Mind by Soshitsu Sen which I read a couple of times a year, and Customers for Life which is a book on customer service that I got from Erik. Also, every winter I read Home Ice by Jack Falla, and make a plan to put an ice pond in my backyard.
- One book you would want on a desert island? Depends which island I was on and what kind of trees it had.
- One book that made you laugh? Probably Hocus Pocus by Kurt Vonnegut.
- One book that made you cry? I have cried at the end of and A Prayer for Owen Meany and A Widow for One Year, both by John Irving. Lately, I cried while reading the ending of the book The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. That guy looks like a serial killer by the way.
- One book you had wish had been written? The Gospel of Christ, by Christ.
- One book you wish had never been written? The Book of Revelations, because I don't think it belongs in the Bible. No one is really sure who wrote it anyway, or where they thought that stuff up. Maybe mushrooms were available back then?
- One book you are currently reading? I am currently reading Saboteurs: The Nazi Raid on America by Washing Post reporter Michael Dobbs. Also, recently I finished Exodus again. Currently I am reading Joshua. As I get older, the Bible offers more questions that it does answers.
- One book you have been meaning to read? My dad gave me a copy of Battle Cry of Freedom by James McPherson, which is supopsed to be he best single book ever written on the Civil War. I enjoy reading history, and have it on my plate to read McCullough's Truman sometime this winter.
