The One Book Meme

I don’t tag, but I like memes. I saw this one at Codex.

  1. One book that changed your life:
    We Have Reason To Believe by the late Rabbi Louis Jacobs.
  2. One book that you’ve read more than once:
    Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome.
  3. One book that you’d want on a desert island:
    Midrash Tanhhuma.
  4. One book that made you laugh:
    My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell.
  5. One book that made you cry:
    Tunnel in the Sky by Robert Heinlein.
  6. One book that you wish had been written:
    A sequel to The Promise by Chaim Potok in which Danny makes aliya to Israel. I was at a screening of The Chosen where Potok spoke, and he hinted that he was working on this, but I might have misinterpreted him.
  7. One book that you wish had never been written:
    The Da Vinci Code
  8. One book you’re currently reading:
    Blue at the Mizzen by Patrick O’Brian
  9. One book you’ve been meaning to read:
