One Book Meme.

Taken from monniblog.

One book you're currently reading: Step Closer by Tessa McWatt.

One book that changed your life: The Diviners by Margaret Laurence. Not for the story as such but because it was the book that inspired me to read only Canadian authors for a year which led to where I am now.

One book you'd want on a deserted island: The biggest, fattest short story anthology I can find. Or maybe an omnibus edition of Lord of the Rings. I could while away the time by making family trees.

One book you've read more than once: Stealing Heaven by Marion Meade.

One book you've never been able to finish: From the Fifteenth District by Mavis Gallant.

One book that made you laugh: How to be a Canadian by Will & Ian Ferguson.

One book that made you cry: Can't remember the last book that made me really cry but I got kinda choked up at King Leary by Paul Quarrington. Megiddo's Shadow by Arthur Slade also got to me, which I didn't expect.

One book you keep rereading: There isn't one. There are too many books I haven't read yet.

One book you've been meaning to read: Wow. There are so many. The View from Castle Rock by Alice Munro.

One book you believe everyone should read: Not Wanted on the Voyage by Timothy Findley. Had to say it.
