Book Meme

Tagged by BondBloke for this one; not that I’m a great fan of blog-tag, mainly because it reveals that I’m Billy-No-Mates on the web! Anyway, here goes:

1: One book that changed your life.
The Confessions of St Augustine

2: One book you have read more than once.
Nearly everything on the bookshelf – I’m mean when it comes to buying new books. Just finished Going Postal by Terry Pratchett, which gets richer with every reading.

3: One book you would want on a desert island.
The Kon-Tiki Adventure by Thor Heyerdal – one has to be practical here.

4: One book that made you laugh?
500 Mile Walkies by Mark Waddington.

5: One book you wish had been written?
The George W Bush Guide to Hill-billy Diplomacy.

6: One book you wish had never had been written?
Boogie up the River by Mark Waddington.

7: One book that made you cry?
I don’t cry at the written word, but music can get me when I least expect it. That said, A Tale of Two Cities came pretty close to it.

8: One book you are currently reading?
Para Handy Stories.

9: One book you have been meaning to read?
Almost anything by Charles Dickens.

10: Now tag five people

Robin
Jude
Tom
Freda
Pavlov’s Cat

    Thank you for the nomination/baton. Spotted it a while back and put it on the back burner, what with holidays and that. Then forgot. Then realised that if i do it I will certainly reveal how appallingly thinly read I am. So am still considering how I could do it and not look a dork.

    In case you were wondering.
