What's in a Meme?*

Julie, to hear is to obey.

1. One book that changed your life.

The Weight of Glory by C.S. Lewis. Or The Nanny Diaries.

2. One book you've read more than once.

Blue Castle by Lucy Maud Montgomery.

3. One book you want on a desert island.

The Holy Bible. And Plato’s Republic. By the time help arrived, I would have begun to understand the first chapter.

4. One book that made you laugh.

Scoop by Evelyn Waugh. “A major in Wales challenged him categorically to produce a single authenticated case of a great Crested Grebe attacking young rabbits.”

5. One book that made you cry.

Charlotte’s Web. It is my earliest recollection of crying at the end of a book. Anne of Green Gables, Lord of the Rings, The Last Battle, Goodbye Mr. Chips, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and everything by C.S. Lewis followed.

Didn’t I cry at Little Women?

6. One book you wish you had written.

Pride and Prejudice.

7. One book you wish had never been written.

In answer to this I have read answers: The Communist Manifesto, Main Street and anything by Nicholas Sparks.

I cannot answer the question. I don’t read bad books.

Ah, that felt good.

8. One book you are currently reading.

A Severe Mercy by Sheldon Vanaucken.

9. One book you've been meaning to read.

Atlas Shrugged. It is long. And it is written by Ayn Rand. Still, I feel obligated.

10. Now tag people.

girlfriday contributors. You read. Now write.

*I don't know what a meme is either. But it's catchy. Pass it on.

Read "Three Weeks With My Brother" and if you still include "anything by Nicholas Sparks" under your list of books that should never have been written, then I might just have to disown you.
