Book meme

She got me! I've been tagged by Cay at the Cajun Cottage Under the Oaks

Here goes ...

1) ONE BOOK THAT CHANGED YOUR LIFE
For the Children's Sake by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay - my first introduction to Charlotte Mason

2) ONE BOOK YOU'VE READ MORE THAN ONCE
A City of Bells by Elizabeth Goudge

3) ONE BOOK YOU'D WANT ON A DESERT ISLAND
The original book Scouting for Boys by Lord Baden Powell. If that doesn't teach me how to survive on a desert island, nothing will! And for reading pleasure, The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R.Tolkien

4) ONE BOOK THAT MADE YOU LAUGH
My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell

5) ONE BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis. I'm with Karen E on that one.

6) ONE BOOK THAT YOU WISH HAD BEEN WRITTEN
An up-to-date "living" geography book introducing children to countries and cultures around the world. It should have both vivid literary descriptions and vibrant photos.

7) ONE BOOK THAT YOU WISH HAD NEVER BEEN WRITTEN
The Antiquary by Walter Scott. I had to study it for an exam during my school days and have never been able to bring myself to read anything by Scott since.

8) ONE BOOK YOU'RE CURRENTLY READING
Old Thunder: a Life of Hilaire Belloc by Joseph Pearce. Not getting through it very fast, though. Baby brain!

9) ONE BOOK YOU'VE BEEN MEANING TO READ
The Latin Centered Curriculum by Drew Campbell

10) TAG FIVE OTHER BOOKLOVERS
Every Waking Hour
Sweetness and Light
Ecole Buissonniere
Family in Feast and Feria
Shari (don't think you get out of this just because you don't have a blog!)

OK Kathryn I'll get busy. Did you realize that three of your links (blogs you tagged) bring you to Willa's blog?
