Meme snagged from Confessions of a Bibliovore.

One book that changed your life

I kind of suck at introspection, which eans that I have a really hard time pinpointing books that changed my life. I usually point to books that affected me as a writer, such as American Gods or the His Dark Materials trilogy. The books that really affected me the most are probably the countless mythology books my parents read to me when I was tiny that hooked me on books in general and fantasy in particular.

The embarassing part about this is that the book that I think really did change my life isn't actually that good: Virtual Mode, by Piers Anthony, because at the time that I read it I was going through some kind of similar stuff.

One book you have read more than once

So, so, soooooo many. I'm a compulsive rereader. I've read Neil Gaiman's American Gods four times in the space of about a year and a half.

One book you would want on a desert island

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, by Susanna Clarke, because it's long enough to keep me entertained until I either die of dehydration or am rescued.

One book that made you laugh

The Truth, by Terry Pratchett. I love all the Discworld books, but this one is special.

One book that made you cry

I almost never cry over books. At most, I get a little weepy. The afore-mentioned American Gods regularly has this effect on me.

The last book I seriously bawled over was some horse book I read when I was sevenish.

One book you wish had been written

I would kill for a fourth Keeper's Chronicles book.

One book you wish had never been written

Eragon, by Christopher Paolini. There have been other obnoxious books, but this one is particularly obnoxious because it is SO FUCKING POPULAR.

One book you are currently reading

Summer Knight, by Jim Butcher. It's the forth book in the series. I got hooked on the Dresden Files through downloading the audiobooks read by James Marsters.

One book you've been meaning to read

How Are The Mighty Fallen, by Thomas Burnett Swann. It's this crazy slashy book from the seventies that I've been meaning to read for a while, and now I have it in my clutches. I'm going to read it as soon as I'm done with Summer Knight.

Nice post and fine recommendations.

American Gods four times? Wow, I'm on my second reading right now and have just published a review of the novel.

Good luck with your writing, I'm on the same boat :)

Cheers!
