It's always fun to think about books.
The book that changed my life: Reminiscences by William Morris Stewart.
It caused me to chase all over this country searching for my long lost relatives. Uncle Bill was my great-grandfather's brother and the first US Senator from Nevada.
The book I read more than once: The Love Letters by Madeline L'Engle.
I read this about every five years. It always fascinates me.
The book I would want on a desert island: Footprints in the Dust by Alice Cooper Bailey.
My 6th grade teacher read us this book. Alice B. wrote it in 1936. I found a copy in a rare book store a few years ago. Since it is about an island, I picked it for this category.
A book that made me laugh: Knots in my Yo Yo String by Jerry Spinelli.
It is his biography of life during the middle school years.
A book that made me cry: Small Steps; The Year I Got Polio by Peg Kehret
This is a biography of another author of children's books.
A book I wish I had written: Down the Rabbit Hole by Peter Abrahams.
This is a very clever YA mystery.
A book that I wish would not have been written: Pretty Birds by Scott Simon.
I love to listen to Scott Simon on NPR, but he definitely should keep his day job.
The book I am currently reading: In the Company of Cheerful Ladies by Alexander McCall Smith.
This is one of the #1 Ladies Detective Agency series. They are just fun to read.
I tag the Repressed Librarian and four other librarians who might be reading this.
