Chris tagged me, so...
One book that changed your life:
I'm not sure it changed my life, but reading Wuthering Heights at school made me realise that "proper" books could be just as fun as the trashy scifi and fantasy stuff I'd been reading until then.
One book you've read more than once:
There's a fair few, actually. I always mean to read Lord of the Rings once a year, but it's actually been about twice in a decade.
One book you would want on a desert island:
Presumably something like The Dummies' Guide to Escaping Desert Islands...
One book that made you laugh:
The first Hitchhiker's, the first few Discworld books. There are a few too many to limit to just "one".
One book that made you cry:
One book you wish you had written:
The Bible, clearly.
One book you wish had never been written:
The DaVinci Code. Not because it's particularly bad in itself (I've not read it and have no desire to, but people I trust quite like it), but because of the juggernaut of stupidity that followed in its wake.
One book you are currently reading:
I'm in between books at the moment, but I've got an ever-growing stack of novels in the bedroom. Rad told me to read The Algebraist, so that'll be next.
One book you have been meaning to read:
Apart from the stack, I've always wanted to read the Ramayana and the Mahabharata.
Tag five people:
I'm so out of touch with the world, I don't know anyone. Let's try Rad, Nagl, Tony and Liam.
