Lois E. Lane: What's in a Meme?

1. One book that changed your life.
"The Last Battle" by C.S. Lewis

2. One book you've read more than once.
Romans in the New Testament -- is that cheating?

3. One book you want on a desert island.
The Bible -- and that's definitely cheating since there are 66 books in all.

4. One book that made you laugh.
Pretty much any of the Harry Potter books can make me laugh; they're not known for their humorous tones, but I think Rowling has a great sense of humor.

5. One book that made you cry.
"To Kill a Mockingbird" by Lee and "The Chosen" by Potok both did.

6. One book you wish you had written.
Ya, pretty much anything by Jane Austen.

7. One book you wish had never been written.
"Satanic Verses" ... only because I got sick of hearing about it night and day when it was published!

8. One book you are currently reading.
Um ... well, I am reading a Bible study by Max Lucado. Otherwise, I'm out (sad, I know). Soon I will start a book given to me by ihearttexas called "Aha."

9. One book you've been meaning to read.
"Les Miserables," which my husband gave me about a year ago and I have yet to crack open. It's huge, people!

What about The Last Battle changed your life?

It's no "Weight of Glory," I know, and I was teetering back and forth between "The Last Battle" and the biography of John Newton (author of the hymn "Amazing Grace"). The read the latter at a very young age and I was so struck by the testimony of grace in his story. Yet, even though I read "TLB" as a child as well, it didn't really impact me 'til my last year of college. I don't know that any book besides the Bible has literally "changed my life," but the imagery of the end of time and the glories of the afterlife just illuminated a lot of things in my everyday perspectives. I could read the last few chapters over and over.
