Books...Good, Bad, and Ugly

I got tagged by Sandi (who got tagged by her friend Heather, who got tagged...yeah, it's like a blog chain letter, but it's about books, so I can live with it) to answer the following questions about books. Here goes:

1. One book that changed your life: Anne of Green Gables
2. One book that you’ve read more than once: Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (and all its sequels)

3. One book you’d want on a desert island: Gilligan's Cookbook & the Skipper's Too (or to pass the time, probably the entire Outlander series bound together--there is enough sheer volume, character, and plot to keep me entertained for weeks)

4. One book that made you laugh: The Ties That Bind (and Gag) - Erma Bombeck
5. One book that made you cry: A Severe Mercy (by far the one that has caused the most sobbing...I was embarrassed to be seen reading it)

6. One book that you wish had been written: Your Kids: Guaranteed Godly

7. One book that you wish had never been written: Prayer of Jabez
8. One book you’re currently reading: can you believe I'm between books? (Just finished When Life and Belief Collide)
9. One book you’ve been meaning to read: Blue Like Jazz

10. Now tag five people: uhh...let's make it four: Erin, Shawn, Dorie, Courtney

I should add Blue Like Jazz to my "need to read" list. It's been sitting on my bookshelf for over a year now! way to go me, huh? :)

BLJ is an excellent read. I should have put it on my list as read more than once and lifechanging.
I also had Anne of Green Gables as my lifechanging book!

Thanks for inviting me to play. You coaxed my brain out of "beach bum" mode. http://likepaperlanterns.blogspot.com/

I have read Anne of Green Gables and it is a favorite. I have seen two people mention it as a life-changing book and I am curious about how so?
