From Ms. Mamma!

One book that changed your life:
I don't really have any books that changed my life. One book that I am really enjoying right now is, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. I began to develope better managment stratagies, but I think it will help me a "better person." Probably a little cheesy I know, but I'm young and I can always work on a better me! ;-)

One book you read more than once:
I'm a sucker for ANY thing by Stephen King. Horror is, by far, my favorite genre. I have read most of his older work many times, but I've read The Shining the most.

One book you want on a desert island:
Probably one the Worst Case Senario books!!! Also, Atlas Shrugged. I read a lot of Ayn Rand when I was in high school. I used to really enjoy her work.

One book that made you cry:
Hmm--I've been reading mostly trade books for my job, so I haven't really read anything that has caused me to tear up lately!!! I read most of the Clan of the Cave Bear series when I was in highschool. There were some parts in them that made me cry.

One book that made you laugh:
Confessions of a Shopaholic. Yes--it IS 'chicklit.' But it was a good book. I'd probably read that one again.

One book you wish would have been written:
Yes, I really am happy (a gal's guide to NOT being married).

One book you wish had never been written:
So the book that I putting here is a book that I actually enjoyed, but because I was REQUIRED to read it for a college humanities course and then over analyse it, I didn't really get a chance to enjoy it. I might read it again. The Old Gringo.

One book you are currently (re)reading (again & again):
I'm sad to say that I am not rereading anything right now.

One book you have been meaning to read:
I've been meaning to read Beowulf again. Again, this was a high school favorite of mine.

Three people you will tag:
Oh my! I don't have enough regular blog readers to do any tagging!!! ;-)

Rach- I think SK is a master of deft description, especially when it comes to character development. There are few writers that can describe a character so vividly. I think I read Clan of the Cavebear in HS... I should read it again. For some reason I'm thinking of Rae Dawn Chong in "Quest for Fire" when it's Daryl Hannah...

Yeah-he does have GREAT charecter development. The movies produced from his books NEVER compare!!!
