I am going old-school today with a book meme I’ve done twice: once in 2006 and once in 2008. I thought while I have a bunch of bibliophiles gathered for this series, I would do it again. And maybe you’ll do it, too, and share it with me? Or at least give me your response to one in the comments?
One book that changed your life: Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life by Anne Lamott. I’m forever amused that this first came into my hands via my editor at The Religious Herald, the Southern Baptist newspaper in Virginia. Because, well, it’s Anne Lamott. There is cursing and she can teeter on the sacrilegious. But the advice in this book is so spot on when it comes to writing, and I love her way with words.
One book you have read more than once: Oh, a lot. Most recently, I reread Making Children Mind Without Losing Yours by Kevin Leman.
One book that made you laugh: I remember giggling reading The Help.
One book you wish had never been written: The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake is this year’s winner for Worst Read category. I wish I had that time back … plus it is SO weird it haunts me a little.
One book you are currently reading: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks – I am reading the epilogue!
One book you have been meaning to read: How long do you have? I’ve actually done of lot of reading “what I’ve been meaning to read” the last few months: The Help, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Kitchen House, The Paris Wife. One book I think I would really love is The Reading Promise by Alice Ozma.
Your turn! Answer one or all in the comments or in your own post. Looking forward to reading them.
