I've Been Tagged...Again!!

HeartsInSanFrancisco tagged me with this book meme. I hope that shot they gave me the other day covers multiple memes. At any rate, here are my bookish answers:

1. ONE BOOK THAT CHANGED YOUR LIFE?

Truly, the Bible.

2. ONE BOOK YOU HAVE READ MORE THAN ONCE?
Baseball by Ken Burns – it was the companion to his PBS documentary

3. ONE BOOK YOU WOULD WANT ON A DESERT ISLAND?
Anything by Dave Barry

4. ONE BOOK THAT MADE YOU LAUGH?
Any Dave Barry Book. In fact, I bought one before I had open heart surgery and tried to read it several times after surgery while I was still in the hospital. I never could get past the first page because I kept laughing, which hurt like the dickens (to use a literary reference).

5. ONE BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY?
The Greatest Generation by Tom Brokaw.

6. ONE BOOK YOU WISH HAD BEEN WRITTEN?
John Adams by David McCullough. It was a great read, I almost forgot it was history.

7. ONE BOOK YOU WISH HAD NEVER BEEN WRITTEN?
How To Pick Up Chicks On A Budget. Ok, I made that up.

8. ONE BOOK YOU ARE CURRENTLY READING?
I’m actually reading two at the same time: The Secret Life of Lobsters by Trevor Corson and I Shouldn't Even Be Doing This!: And Other Things That Strike Me as Funny by Bob Newhart

9. ONE BOOK YOU HAVE BEEN MEANING TO READ?
Dutch. It’s the biography of Ronald Reagan.

10. ONE BOOK YOU'RE GLAD YOU OWN?
1776 by David McCullough. It’s a reminder how lucky we are that we won the Revolutionary War and how easily we could have lost it.

11. ONE BOOK THAT MUST BE READ ALOUD?
Green Eggs and Ham

Those are my book selections. Now, I would like to tag Odat, Meloncutter and Lee. Sorry folks.
