THE BOOK MEME
- One book that changed your life
Who Moved the Stone by Frank Morison
This is the book that tipped me over from unbeliever to believer when I was a freshman at the University of Michigan. I needed a fact-based defense of the actual invasion of the natural by the supernatural, and God sent it in this book.
- One book you've read more than once
Oh, so many. Let's choose Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.
- One book you'd want on a desert island
Desert Survival Skills by David Alloway
I am nothing if not practical.
- One book that made you laugh
Miss Manners' Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior by Judith Martin
This is also the book that taught me how to avoid unwanted committee assignments without being ungracious or feeling guilty.
- One book that made you cry
Again, so many.
The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
- One book you wish had been written
I've thought a lot about this.
Blessed by Adversity: How Being Overthrown in a Coup Changed My Life
by the Rt. Rev. A. Hitler
- One book you wish had never been written
The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx, et al.
- One book you're currently reading
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
(Don't be too impressed, fellow lowbrows. My husband's good influence is being felt, but we're still newlyweds. The jury is still out on whether my taste can be rehabilitated.)
- One book you've been meaning to read
Deep Conversion / Deep Prayer by Fr. Thomas Dubay
It's on its way from Amazon. Fr. Dubay is leading our parish women's retreat, and this is the pre-reading.
