“When anybody asks, 'What are you writing about now?' if I try to reply, the book-in-the-works sounds so idiotic to me that I think, 'Why am I trying to write that puerile junk?' So now I give up; if I could talk about it, I wouldn't have to write it."
- Madeleine L'Engle, A Circle of Quiet

Thanks to Blond Girl for this one.

1. One book that has changed your life:
I'll go with the obvious here, the Bible, because it has.

2. One book you've read more than once:
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis

3. One book that you would want on a desert island:
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

5. One book that made you cry:
Marley and Me by John Grogan

6. One book that you wish had been written:

7. One book you wish had never been written:
The only books that come to mind are ones I've never read, and I would never ban a book unless I had first done some research on it. I could totally get on a soapbox about this, but this is not the time for it.

Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery

9. One book you have been meaning to read:
Phantastes by George MacDonald

A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeleine L'Engle

12. Five People I tag to do this meme:

This is a great meme. This would be way too hard to narrow down.

I am proud of you. I can't believe you managed to keep everyone (well, except the CofN, but I'll count that as one) for each question. I couldn't do it. You know me.
