Wow...great list, definately have some new titles to add to my Amazon wish list. I always love reading these memes to get a bit of insight as to why people love or hate certain books. Hope all is well! cheers!

there are a lot here that i have not read...going to have to add them to my library list and then get back there to check some out (and face my fines).
love how your describe your relationship to these books.

leonie (yes another one!)

One book that changed your life? Oh, the places you’ll go! This simple little dr. seuss book is a great reminder to me that I can be and do anything and that there are sometimes going to be days that get me down, but that I can get up and keep going.

One book you have read more than once? I have quite a list and I could ‘cheat’ and repeat the one above, but I’ll go with the Clan of the Cave Bear series of books.

One book you would want on a desert island? Hmmm… Probably something lighthearted I guess, like the full collection of Calvin & Hobbes comic books.

One book that made you laugh? I actually can’t think of any! Yikes! I will start with your one and work my way through some of the others from blogs that Leonie has linked to as well.

One book that made you cry? Tuesdays with Morrie.

One book you wish had been written? Circle of Stones by Judith Duerk. One of the first books I read after sitting in my first circle of women. I pick it up almost every time I walk past it, flick to a page and find that it always resonates with me.

One book you wish had never been written? There’s only one [series of] book I started that I just couldn’t finish and that is the new Neal Stephenson books. Too many names and dates and things and I just can’t remember them all! I gave up halfway through the second book.

One book you are currently reading? I have just started The White Masai. The movie was playing during a recent film festival. I didn’t go, but the description of the movie intrigued me, so I bought the book.

One book you have been meaning to read? Crossing the Unknown Sea by David Whyte. I have had it sitting by the bed for about six months now.

One book you loved as a kid? Charlotte’s Web. If you’ve read it you will (hopefully) understand why.

One book you loved in school? I read so many books at school that I find it hard to name just one. Probably the Trixie Belden series (I had every single one and donated them to the local public library when I left school).

One book that is your all time favourite? Um, I have so so many. But I think it would have to be The Moosewood Cookbook by Mollie Katzen – yum!


these are so yummy ... thank you for sharing dearheart :)


Ellen Meloy's writing also has had a powerful impact on me. I love that her writing is hilarious, psychological, personal and global. Have you read "Eating Stone," which was published posthumously and is about her analysis session with her beloved desert bighorn sheep? It is very moving.

You might also like The Hopes of Snakes by Lisa Couturier.

Thanks for your many interesting recommendations.
