I'm It!

Scott over at Preacher-Boy's Hideout tagged me for a book meme. Yay! It's taken me a few days, but here is my try:

1. One book that changed my life: The Way Home by Mary Pride. This book brought home schooling to my attention, and while I know I do not agree with a lot of what is in there, the fact that it got me to consider teaching the kids at home as an option certainly changed my life (our whole family life actually).

2. One book you have read more than once: Just Me and My Mom by Mercer Mayer (over and over again at bedtime), but just for me: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams.

3. One book you would want on a desert island: Celtic Daily Prayer: Prayers and Readings From the Northumbria Community (I figure I've been needing a silent retreat anyway. Might as well have some devotional materials.)

4. One book that made you laugh: Going Postal by Terry Pratchett. (I've also read this one more than once.)

5. One book that made you cry:
The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffeneggar.

6. One book you wish you had written: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. (Though I don't think I would want to be Jane Austen, and without her experiences, I doubt the book would be as good as it is.)

7. One book you wish had never been written: Well, aside from the obvious responses, I'd have to say either Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential by Joel Osteen or The Prayer of Jabez: Breaking Through to the Blessed Life by Bruce Wilkenson.

8. One book you are currently reading: The Emotionally Healthy Church by Peter Scazzero.

9. One book you have been wanting to read: Slaves, Women & Homosexuals: Exploring the Hermeneutics of Cultural Analysis by William J. Webb.

10. Booktag five other people: Steve, Markus, Happy, Not Clint, cause I don't think he'd be very thrilled with the idea and Anonymous.

11. One book you would like to see made into a movie:
I enjoy movies of books I've read, but honestly prefer the books most of the time. So, I'm having a hard time thinking of one that I'd like to see as a movie.

12. One children's book you always recommend: Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovelby Virginia Lee Burton.

13. One young adult book you always recommend: Magic Bicycle: The Story of a Bicycle That Found a Boy by John Bibee.

14. One book character you'd like to have lunch with:
Lunch? Who has time for lunch?
