Tagged!

I got tagged yesterday for the first time, on my old homeschool blogger account. Thought I'd reproduce it here for your, erm, interest?! Thanks Karla!

So, here goes:

ONE BOOK THAT CHANGED YOUR LIFE:

May sound corny but... the Bible

ONE BOOK THAT YOU’VE READ MORE THAN ONCE:

Grief - I read all my books more than once! Memorably, as a young child I read through all the fiction books in my local library.. Now having moved back to the area, I'm pleased to see they've got some new ones for my boys ;0) But one that I re-read regularly? Hmm, Jamie Buckingham "Where Eagles Soar"

TWO BOOKS YOU’D WANT ON A DESERT ISLAND:

The Bible, and the complete Lord of The Rings (bought as one book, not 3!)

ONE BOOK THAT MADE YOU LAUGH:

The first Terry Pratchett that I read (Colour of Magic)

ONE BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY:

"Skallagrigg" by William Horwood. An awesome book, very hard to read as it is so emotive. I was only a teenager when I first read it and it was very powerful. I have never ever forgotten the book, but have also never reread it - that's how big an impression it made.

ONE BOOK YOU WISH HAD BEEN WRITTEN:

"The advantage of hindsight"....

ONE BOOK YOU WISH HAD NEVER BEEN WRITTEN:

"Psycho" by Brett Easton Ellis

ONE BOOK THAT YOU ARE CURRENTLY READING:

Dr Neil T Anderson - Victory Over Darkness

ONE BOOK YOU HAVE BEEN MEANING TO READ:

Anything by Charles Dickens other than Hard Times - the only Dickens I've ever read, and that was as part of my English A Level - which kinda spoilt Dickens for me!

FIVE PEOPLE YOU TAG:

I'm struggling here! Everyone seems to have been "gotten" already..
How about Roarke, Deb, OTHENA, Sharon, and Jules.

Thanks for the tag, I've done my list too.
I'd never even heard of Skallagrigg, but have just looked it u and I definitely want to read it now.
