The book tag

Tagged via antrix.

  1. Book that changed my life – Conversations with God (Part 1), by Neale Donald Walsch. I read this book in my early undergraduate years… and nothing has influenced more strongly than this my model of the world.
  2. Book you’ve read more than once – Nearly every book I’ve really liked. One of my reasons for loving the books I do is that the more you read them, the more you discover. To name one, One by Richard Bach :) To name another, The Tamuli series by David Eddings.
  3. Book you’d take to a desert island – Simple. The Revenge of the Sith by Matthew Stover. Never come across anything more re-readable.
  4. Book that made you laugh – Nearly all written by the master of humour – P. G. Wodehouse. To name but a few, The Code of the Woosters, Joy in the morning, Uncle Fred in the springtime and Psmith Journalist.
  5. Book that made you cry – I can’t recall one. The one that came the closest was The curious incident of the dog in the night-time by Mark Haddon.
  6. Book you wish you had writtenUniverse through a droid’s sensors. Thought long and hard about it, wrote a bit, and then left it. Maybe I’ll pick it up again someday.
  7. Book you wish had never been writtenThe Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway. If it hadn’t been written it wouldn’t have been forced upon my unsuspecting and innocent brain at the tender age of 15.
  8. Book you’re currently readingFreakonomics by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner. Look out for the review sometime next week.
  9. Book you’ve been meaning to read – The list is endless. The one on top of my mind though is The C++ programming Language (3rd ed) by Bjarne Stroustrup.
