book meme

It's been long time. Anything I say about it will be an excuse. I'm just lazing around. Got sort of comfortable about not blogging, and had to re-break the ice.

Saw this book meme in one of favorite blogger's archives. Thought it will be good (read: easy) post for now.

1. One book that changed your life?.
I have got inspired, learnt things from many books. But one I largely remember is 'Who moved my Cheese?'

2. One book that you have read more than once?
I've read many many books more than once. SLB's novels mainly, Murthy Rao's too. I can even read Sidney Sheldon's novels more than once!

3. One book you would want on a desert island?
May be I'll take Papillon so that I get inspired to escape from that island.

4. One book that made you laugh?
Many. Cant think of any titles now.

5. One book that made you cry?
again, many. Most of SLB's books, specially 'Parva'.

6. One book you wish had been written?
Ah.. not thought of any book that way. I'm just happy reading them.

7. One book you wish had never been written?
All those big fat text books; Physics n Maths text books mainly.

8. One book you are currently reading?
Scarlett, The sequel of 'Gone with the Wind'. This book was written by Alexandra Ripley in 1991. Generally the sequels are written by the same author, in a series. But in this case it's different (Gone with the Wind was written by Margaret Mitchell in 1936). But the charm of Scarlett O'Hara world continues in this book too.

9. One book you have been meaning to read?
Kite Runner, have heard a lot about it. Have also conned Subha to buy it for me :-)
Need to grab a copy of 'AvaraNa' before it disappears from the shelves. SLB books are famous/infamous for going out-of-print.

10. Tag 5 people to do the meme!
You are welcome to do it. Drop me a line and let me know if you do it.
