Book Meme

I have been tagged with a book meme by St.Peters Helpers
So here I go:

1. One book that changed your life:
The wounded spirit by Frank Peretti and the Immitation of Christ by Thomas A Kempis
(I had to add two books)
2. One book that you’ve read more than once:
The Gospels
3. One book you’d want on a desert island:
The Bible
4. One book that made you laugh:
God the autobiography by Jeremy Pascall
5. One book that made you cry:
The Bible (especially when the soldiers spit on Jesus)
6. One book that you wish had been written:
How to have time for everything in one day
One book that you wish had never been written:
The Da Vinci Code
8. One book you’re currently reading:
The Diary of St.Faustina
9. One book you’ve been meaning to read:
Theology of the body (I need to buy it first)

If you want to be tagged be tagged.

yeah...code monkey's don't really read many books that are actually considered literature.

Although this code monkey does like to read books about how things get blowed up or how non-code monkey's get paid by their government (aka miltary personel) to blowed stuff up

HeHe! Very nice selection.

awesome idea @ book meme .. can we have a movie meme too? I am not much of a book person .. but the most important book in my life is The Koran .. u should read the english translation ..

8:56 PM  

fatwonkkid,
so that's what you like read, I watched a documentary once on how things blow up, so I know just a little.

Marie-Linda,
Good observation lol. I would like to see you do a book meme, I should have tagged you.

Nabeel,
You can make up a movie meme and then tag me. I have not read the Koran yet, perhaps I will do that in the future.

Honestly, I thought The Divinci Code was really a poorly written book. I took it as entertainment - sort of a play on the truth for drama's sake.

And geez, I wasn't even entertained.

C: the military intrigues me greatly. i am always amazed how a man can command another man to death, and that man actually does it. likewise how one can completely risk his life on a suicide mission just to recover the body of a fallen comrade.

i though the davinci code was clever. i enjoy books that take a shred of truth, and put a spin on it. kinda like in the matrix when neo had deja vu, and they flipped out b/c the agents were changing the program. granted i never read the davinci code (audio book), so that experience might have been different.

i do think people got overly upset over the book, i mean it was considered fiction.

Fatwonkkid,
I don't hate the book nor have I read it, but I chose it as a book that I wish had not been written because of all the controversy and I got sick of hearing about it constantly, everywhere there was something about this book, the author, on tv, magazines, newspapers etc.
Although the reason people were upset about it is because the author chose the Catholic Church in which to base his fiction on, and that upset many Catholics because as an example it's like saying "your mother is a murderer, liar and you don't know it" and then saying "ok I just made that up" if you know what I mean.
But the only reason i'm upset about it is because i'm sick of hearing about it.

7:01 PM  

I love to read, and I can honestly say I haven't read one of those books.

I take it you read alot too?

9:06 PM  

Phats, I am reading and have read others that maybe you have read, at the moment i'm reading "The Chronicles of Narnia" and "Cane River" by Lalita Tademy. NOt to mention fashion magazines and all that girly crap.

11:53 PM  

How cool that youre reading The Diary of Faustina :) Let me know how you like it!!

4:52 AM  

you're just an open book . . .

5:31 AM  

You probably wouldn't like the books I read. Although I have read several Elizabeth Berg's novels and you may enjoy them.

4:10 PM  

I'd also like to read The Diary of St. Faustina. I hope you can share some snippets in your blog.

5:27 PM  

I was going to put Da Vinci Code too, but changed my mind at the last minute -its not Dan Brown's fault that readers are stupid and believe his mumbo-jumbo.

10:18 PM  

I haven't read books much in a few years. I need to read Birdsong though for my English class, and Pride and Prejudice. Should be interesting hehe.

Thanks for adding me btw :)

2:49 AM  

This is an interesting meme. I'm wondering what your list would be like if the condition was that the Bible or one's holy book couldn't be included for the purpose of the meme.

By the way, I have done this meme on my Fingerprints blog at http://fingerprints10.blogspot.com
