Book-o-rama


I've been tagged by Sheryl for a me-me. I don't think it's ever happened before. What's more is I was just thinking about blogging about my current reading. Although I can't remember exactly WHAT about it, right now.

1. One book you have read more than once:

There are tons. I'm a huge repeat reader. But to name one: Jonathan Kellerman's When the Bough Breaks.


2. One book you would want on a desert island:

Issac Asimov's The Complete Stories. See, that way, there'd be variety. *nods*

3. One book that made you laugh:

Teresa Bloomingdale's I Should Have Seen it Coming When the Rabbit Died.

4. One book that made you cry:

The Lovely Bones, by Alice Sebold.

5. One book you wish you had written:

When I worked at [insert name of multi-national electronics company here], I was compiling a list of "101 Things to do with a Digital Satellite System". Because they sure as shit weren't fit to watch TV from. I wish I'd continued the list. It would have made a great book.

6. One book you wish had never been written:

I live in a cave. If it doesn't interest me, or if I don't think I'll enjoy it, then I haven't read it. So I have nothing with which to answer this.

7. One book you are currently reading:

Just last night I finished with Harry Potter 5, and started up on Harry Potter 6 (The Half-Blood Prince). I've read them all before. 1-4 I think I've read at least 5 times. When 5 first came out, I'd borrowed my sister's hardcover. When I was re-reading 1-4 again this time, I apparently was rather excited to be getting to 5 again, and discovered I'd bought the paperback twice. If anyone wants a copy (now in used condition), please let me know. And just recently, during my black-out post, I mentioned how I'd found #6 in paperback during my excursion to Wal-Mart. And so now I'm reading it again. Yay! And if anyone would like #6 in hardcover, please let me know. It's only been read once.

But either book #7 or movie #5 had better come out soon. I don't know what I'm going to do once I've finished reading this one again.

8. One book you have been meaning to read:

Asimov's I Robot.

I've been meaning to read it anyway. But now I'm in the middle of an Alan Tudyk kick and just figured out (or remembered) that he's in the movie. So now I have to see it. And I should REALLY read it first. And to go off on a tangent, I just rented A Knight's Tale, for the same reason. Loved it so much that I just had to buy a used copy off of Ebay. And 28 Days, too. (Though I've seen that, several times, before. I'm a huge movie repeater, too.)

9. One book that changed your life:

My life's a blur. I really can't answer that.

10. Now tag five people:

Hmmm. Min, Helen, Angela, Jess, and Amanda.

Nicely done... and so much quicker than I.

I am also a repeat reader. There are books on my shelf I have read upwards of 20 times.

The title of this post cracked me up. Very cute homage.

Lolly said...

That's not my title. It's from Sheryl, when she posted the me-me.

Was I supposed to make my own title? [blush] I'm such a friggin' rookie!

I have the same issue with Harry Potter, which is why I'm putting off re-reading things. I get in an HP rut, and I need more, and end up spending too much time surfing HP sites for spoilers, photos, speculation and fan fic!

I enjoyed I, Robot, the film, although I've never read the book. My Dad did too, and he has read it, being a big Asimov fan. Alan did a great job voicing Sonny.

Meme tagged? *gulp*
