Book meme!1. One book that changed your life:
The Hot Zone by Richard Preston. I read this book in high school and became obsessed with all things medical.
2. One book that you've read more than once:
Just one? I'm a compulsive rereader. I think the book I've read the most is Circle of Friends by Maeve Binchy. I read it so many times it started falling apart and I had to buy a new copy.
3. One book you'd want on a desert island:
The Complete Novels of Jane Austen OK, maybe it's cheating, but it is all bound as one book. And what better than romance to keep you company on a desert island?
4. One book that made you laugh:
House of God by Samuel Shem. Required reading for all interns.
5. One book that made you cry:
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I fell in love with this book in eighth grade and it gets to me every time I read it.
6. One book that you wish you had written:
Harry Potter - I love these books. Plus I would be filthy rich and able to pay off all my school loans.
7. One book that you wish had never been written:
Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy. I hated this book and was tortured with it for summer reading in high school. I never actually made it all the way through.
8. One book you're currently reading:
Throne of Jade by Naomi Novik. I picked it up because a friend's sister wrote it, but it's awesome. Imagine if Horatio Hornblower had dragons to help fight Napoleon. Pretty freakin' cool.
9. One book you've been meaning to read:
There are so many on my bookshelves... I really want to read Lord of the Rings but haven't been able to do it. But I'll keep trying.
