Ok, it seems to be my turn...

1. One book that changed your life: Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/isbnInquiry.asp?isbn=0425156842 . This book gave me my first building blocks for my spiritual understanding of the world around, and led to my theory of body and spirit being one on a molecular level, and the soul being in the state constant state of flux that the body is. It led me to my Pagan beliefs!


2. One book that you've read more than once:
Heidi of the Alps, and Wizard of Oz... These were the novelettes I was reading when I was 6-7, and they took me to places away from my reality where I could be another little girl experiencing marvellous things! I especially liked it when Heidi went to live in town in the big house with the riches and soft white bread rolls she secreted away for Peter's Grandmother!


3. One book you'd want on a desert island:
Spiritual Astrology, I think I NEED to be on a desert island in order to get the most out of this book, because every time I sit down to read it, I get interrupted, LOL...


4. One book that made you laugh:
Yep, another Kathy Lette fan here... But it's been so long...



5. One book that made you cry:
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson http://www.terabithia.com/books/terabithia.html . I cried buckets when I read this at Uni for my Writing for Adolescent class - I only WISH I could write like this!!!

6. One book that you wish had been written: Oh, hmmm, possible anything I can think of has been written, people just don't take it in... Something on personal responsibility would be great... "Stop blaming everyone else, and everything else for the crap in your life" - hmmmm, maybe Dr Phil already wrote that book???


7. One book you wish had never been written:
Just one??? Hmmm, while I think Babywise is a good choice, I'd have to go back to Dr Spock, coz let's face it, he had a big hand in getting the who "Control your baby; baby scheduling" ball rolling... Everyone else is really just a regurgitator of his work...


8. One book you're currently reading:
Spiritual Astrology.


9. One book you've been meaning to read:
Parenting for a Peaceful World, it's been sitting in my bookcase, unopened, for about 6 months...

I'm piking on tag, because I really think everyone I know with a blog has been tagged, but if you haven't and you're reading this (of course you're reading this), YOU'RE IT!!!
