Day of Memes

The One Book Meme (from Monomorado )

1. One book that changed your life:
The Awakening by Kate Chopin It came along at a time in my life when I needed to read it. It's difficult to explain the kind of affect that it had but it was definitely a paradigm shift. I was no longer the same after I read it.
More recently Frankenstein by Mary Shelley impacted my academic interests.

2. One book that you’ve read more than once:
The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway I read it every summer.

3. One book you’d want on a desert island:
The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman by Lawrence Sterne It's fun and interesting and bawdy.

4. One book that made you laugh:
Dress your Family in Corduroy and Denim by David Sedaris

5. One book that made you cry:
Bastard Out of Carolina by Dorothy Allison It rips your heart out.

6. One book that you wish had been written:
Something by my mother about her depression

7. One book that you wish had never been written:
I don't know that I've ever disliked a book that intensely.

8. One book you’re currently reading:
Yearning: Race, Gender and Cultural Politics by bell hooks

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read:
The Night Listener by Armistead Maupin
