slice of my life

Tagged by Janet L.

Okay, it did happen! I got a really busy week, and didn't post anything for a full week. I am trying not to do this!!

One thing that's been bothering me is that Janet tagged me about her book list, and now I need to post my answers. But I am not well read in my current life-era! I felt like my next post had to be what Janet tagged me with! Heehee! So here goes, for anyone who might like to know:

1.One book that changed my life: I think it was a V.C. Andrews book---Flowers in the Attic? I think it was the first book I read that I thought to myself, “Maybe I ought not to read this!” (And it changed my life in that my innocence was interrupted!)

2.One book you have read more than once: All of the Chronicles of Narnia Books. (and yet another go-round with my kids)

3. One book you would want on a desert island: As cliché as it sounds, I really would like to have the Bible there. It's poetry, stories, and inspration all in one.

4. One book that made you laugh: The Stinky Cheese Man (a kids’ book---but very funny!)

5. One book that made you cry: In Case You Ever Wonder by Max Lucado. Not much really makes me cry except things tied to my being a mother. I can't read this one without being choked up.

6. One book you wish you had written: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (that would have made me millions of dollars!!)

7. One book you wish had never been written: Private Parts by Howard Stern----see? I don't have time to read really bad books, so I have to just name one I don't like just based on what I know about the author!

8. One book you are currently reading: I am currently between books, but just finished Memoirs of a Geisha, which I did like a lot.

9. One book you have been wanting to read: I have quite a list. But I welcome any recommendations. This list made me take a 30-minute side track to make a list for myself as I go to the library this afternoon. How about Like Water for Chocolate? It's on Janet's booklist and I had considered it before. Or The Notebook? The movie made me cry like a baby. In a theater---now that's a bit much for me!

10. Booktag five other people: my Mom (but no blog to post upon!), and anyone else who would like to respond. I don't know who would actually write their answers out, but really, I am interested in hearing your answers so I can get some ideas for myself.

11. One book you would like to see made into a movie: The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. This is the first book, and I pick this one since I'd actually like to see a few movies made of the books in this series. I like stuff that takes me to another place, and this one took me to Botswana .

12. One (or in my case, two series of books) children's book you always recommend: All the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. You are always rooting for her, and learning about another time at the same time. Latest favorite series is the Series of Unfortunate Events. The last book, The End, came out this month. It's really witty; very enjoyable for the kids Jamie's age and adults, too.

13. One young adult book you always recommend: Any of the Madeline L’Engle books

14. One book character you'd like to have lunch with: Ninny Threadgoode from Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistletop Cafe.

I have taken a long time today just contemplating these answers. I have a headache that really won't go away, a little bit of sore throat, and a queasy stomach. A good excuse to just take it easy today and play on the computer!
