I got tagged!

Mrs. Emily O'Neal, of Louisville, KY, informed me that she herself had "tagged" me across the recess field or nether-reaches of blogworld. Which would mean, apparantly, that I have to answer questions, post them on my blog, and in turn "tag" others. I think I've been tagged before, when the tendrils of my mind unfurled in the soil of xanga-land...but I didn't react. So Em, you should feel special. =D

1. One book that changed your life: Seeing & Savoring Jesus Christ, by John Piper

2. One book that you’ve read more than once: The Horse & His Boy, by C. S. Lewis

3. One book I’d want on a desert island: my Bible...with colored pencils with which to mark it all up!

4. One book that made me laugh: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (...and The Half-Blood Prince), both by J. K. Rowling-- Anna & I were literally rolling on the floor at passages in both of those books...still do every time I read them!

5. One book that made me cry: La Jeunesse d'Une Petite Reine (that was the first book to do that-- I was in fifth grade in France, reading about Mary, Queen of Scots, who grew up in the Royal Court of France, with Catherine de Medici as a mother-in-law. I'll never forget her story! It made me love history forever.)

6. One book that you wish you had written: A Swiftly Tilting Planet, by Madeleine L'Engle

7. One book you wish had never been written: A Hundred Years of Solitude, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez-- uggh. biggest waste of summer reading ever.

8. One book that you are currently reading: just one? ok, fine, I'll go with the one actually in my backpack-- Your God is Too Safe, by Mark Buchanon

9. One book that you’ve been meaning to read: The Silmarillion (Tolkien)....The Fairie Queen (Spenser)...Eragon (Paolini)...Miracles (Lewis)

And TAG... Ryan, Ashlea, and hmmm....Amy Y'all are "IT"! =D

Tagged... I'm not sure if I'll play by the rules or not. Maybe I can just say, "You didn't get me! Shirt tails don't count!!"

They most certainly DO count!

You're a lesser human for having not read The Silmarillion. At the very least, read the creation account. Even better, read it several times, then at some point soon after, have someone read it to you aloud. Well worth the time.

Toto-- I must assure you that I have both read the creation account in The Silmarillion, AND had it read to me. By none other than my illustrious roommate of the summer, Ashlea Davenport. It was over dinner this June. She can testify. So...I'm still human? ;D
