I've Been Tagged

My first time being tagged! Thanks Lainey.
Here I go...

#1 - One book that changed your life: I would have to say the first category romance that I ever read. Can't remember what that was (it was many, many years ago), but it I enjoyed it so much that I started thinking that I would like to write something like that. It would be many, many years before I actually tried though.
#2 - One book that you've read more than once: Writing Romance by Vanessa Grant. Very helpful.
#3 - One book you'd want on a desert island: Only one? I don't think I could choose. I'd like to have a whole box of romance.
#4 - One book that made you laugh: Do Me, Do My Roots by Eileen Rendahl. Has some dark points but definitely made me laugh too. A rare combination.
#5 - One book that made you cry: Fine Things by Danielle Steele. A teacher saying goodbye to her students because she knows that she's going to die--it had me bawling like a baby on a city bus when I was sixteen.
#6 - One book that you wish you had written: Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells. Loved the book and the movie.
#7 - One book that you wish had never been written: I can't say. Even if I don't enjoy a book, I can always learn something from it--even if it's what not to do.
#8 - One book you're currently reading: Lipstick Jungle by Candace Bushnell (author of Sex and the City). Three powerful fourty-something women in New York--I'm loving it!.
#9 - One book you've been meaning to read: The Divinci Code. Everyone has read it but me.
#10 - Tag Five People: (How about 3?) Patricia, Colleen, Elaine--it's your turn!

Happy Thanksgiving Weekend to all you Canadians!

Hi Marcy,
Ah, a couple to add to the ever growing TBR pile, haven't read do me do my roots, sounds good.
Congratulations on taking the high road for #7, you're absolutely right. Even a book you don't enjoy can teach you something.
Off to check out your 'fun things'.Like I need something else to distract me from my stalled wip! Not sure I want the results. Over on Elle's blog I just discovered I'm 80% boyish and 20% girlish. Yikes! Not sure how the dh would feel about that. (Although he does like the fact that I do the majority of the yard work and can name the vast majority of his tools accurately)
