Books! A meme about books.

I wanted to write a post about books so I went on a meme hunt and found this…

Book Meme

So here goes…
1. One book that changed your life?

Hate to say it in a way but I read The Secret when I was trying to decide whether to give up work to become self employed and this book helped me make the decision. I wrote this post about it at the time.

2. One book you have read more than once?

I tend not to re-read books, even ones I have loved. I don’t really see the point. I would rather have a new experience with a new book.

3. One book you would want on a desert island?

Well I suppose it would depend on how long I may be stuck on the desert island. I read pretty quickly so one book won’t cut it so I’m going to cheat and take my Kindle. If it was some sort of plane crash scenario I would be sure to have it with me anyway. The battery lasts long enough for me to read quite a few books without it dying and once it did run out I could maybe use it as some sort of tool until I’m rescued. Then I’d write a book about my experiences and make it available in paperback and in Kindle format!

4. One book that made you laugh?

Last year I discovered some books my a man Terry Ravenscroft. His book suited my humour so if you want something ligjt to make you laugh try Dear Coca Cola, Stairlift to Heaven and the James Bond spoof Stockport Is Too Much

5. One book that made you cry?

The Time Traveler’s Wife. It’s one of my favourite books which is weird considering I mostly read books about grim murders. I’ve never sobbed so much at a book!  They made it into a film too of course. Meh.

6. One book you wish had been written?

Making a Million and Saving the World by Stacey Smith

7. One book you wish had never been written?

That God awful Twilight mini book thing, what was it called? *consults Amazon*………The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella. Utter pants. I’m not even going to link it for you. Just don’t bother.

8. One book you are currently reading?

I started Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand last night and I’m also dipping in and out of The Complete Book of Running for Women which is giving me some handy tips and motivation.

9. One book you have been meaning to read?

I’d like to read Chavs: The Demonisation of the Working Class by Owen Jones but it’s not available on Kindle yet.

10. Now tag five people.

I’ll tag my cousin and readaholic like me Charlotte @LottieB123, my Mom Wendy @wendy2918 who should read more, my friend Kathryn @allfivehorizons who blogs about books too , my Twitter friend @Raychybabe who shares my love of crime thrillers and erm…. no that’s just four, oh well, sue me : p

Thanks for reading my post about reading
