Okay, I would never in a million lifetimes plus one burn a book without a death threat being involved, but sometimes those shelves get a little crowded. I bet your books would rather be part of a castle, too, than part of a dust collection. Dust bunnies aren’t nearly as fun as four-year-olds, and they can’t read either.
And in the spirit of book addiction and castle building, I’m going along with being tagged by a writer who happens to live at intriguing character central. (You should be so lucky.)
1. One book that changed your life.
I don’t know, even though this answer always makes me feel like I wasn’t a clever enough child.
2. One book that you have read more than once.
A Fine and Private Place by Peter S. Beagle
3. One book that you would want on a deserted island.
The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
4. Two books that made you laugh.
God Said, “Ha!” by Julia Sweeney and Surrender the Pink by Carrie Fisher
5. One book that made you cry.
Possession by A.S. Byatt
6. One book you wish you’d written.
The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman
7. One book you wish had never been written.
There might be a few books wish I’d never read, but I don’t begrudge them having been written.
8. Two books that you are currently reading.
Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman and American Mania by Peter C. Whybrow, MD
9. One book you’ve been meaning to read.

10. Who do you tag?
Any booklover reading this. That means you.
