One of the blogs I visit had this meme on it recently, and since it’s about books, I couldn’t resist putting it on mine.
Feel free to put this and your own answers on your blog, or leave a comment below so we can all see and perhaps get some new recommendations! (You’re really supposed to list one book per question, but I’m feeling bookish and have decided to list just what I like! per question.☺)
One book you’re currently reading: Fasting by Jentezen Franklin & Holiness, Truth & The Presence of God by Frances Frangipane
One book that changed your life: Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster & The Search for Arthur, Geoffry Ashe.
One book you’d want on a deserted island: The Friendly Persuasion, Jessamyn West.
One book you’ve read more than once:
The Merry~go~Round in the Sea, Randolph Stow. The Waterlily, Kate Llewellyn. They're both by poets & simply gorgeous to read! Monkey Grip, Helen Garner.
One book you’ve never been able to finish: I have a long, long list of stuff that wasn't worth finishing ~ & I didn't. Too long for here! Starting with War & Peace! And James Joyce's Ulysses. Pity, as I rather like Joyce normally but that was unreadable!
One book that made you laugh:The Pursuit of Love, Nancy Mitford. The Child Hunt is the most hilarious thing I have ever read! They're a Weird Mob ~ John O'Grady
One book that made you cry: Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, Dee Brown. Seven Little Australians, Ethel Turner.
One book that was a waste of time in your opinion: Lord of the Flies, William Golding . Ghastly book!
One book that stunned you: The Handmaid's Tale, Margaret Attwood.
One book you keep rereading: The Greengage Summer ~ Rumor Godden
One book you’ve been meaning to read: The Keeper of Lost Causes ~ Jussi Adler-Olsen; The Tiger's Wife: A Novel ~Tea Obreht; Among Others ~ Jo Walton
One book you believe everyone should read: The Bible.
Finally, grab the nearest book. Open it to page 56. Find the seventh sentence:
"For without a love of the Truth, no area of our lives can be corrected." ~ Holiness, Truth & The Presence of God, Francis Frangipane
