1. One book that changed your life:
The Treasury of Modern Humor. A huge book full of jokes and riddles, anecdotes and the like. It was published sometime in the 1930's, and was chock-full of racially insensitive humor. It was my first exposure to "adult" humor and changed my outlook on what was funny.

2. One book you have read more than once:
Neuromancer (William Gibson). Still my fave.

3. One book you would want on a desert island:
How to get off a desert island and survive to write a book and become fabulously wealthy.

4. One book that made you laugh:
The Treasury of Modern Humor.

5. One book that made you cry:
The Treasury of Modern Humor. It fell on my hand when I was trying to get it out of the bookshelf. Like I said, it was a big-ass book, and it hurt.

6. One book you wish had been written:
The Unbelievable Happiness of magicmarmot.

7. One book that will explode if you read it:
There is no number seven.

8. One book you are currently reading:
I just finished the last book in the Ender's Game series, Children of the Mind. Singularly unimpressed.

9. One book you have been meaning to read:
Catch-22 is sitting on my side table. I'd also like to read some Hemingway, and Vonnegut.

10. One book that will tag five people:
No, I Don't Tag People, Do It If You Want And Other Stories by Hugh Jass

Time for me to commit SF heresy:

I didn't like Ender's Game.

At all.

There. I've said it.

Hey, it's better than my geek heresy of not liking superheroes. I get stuff thrown at me.

Which I then deflect with my awesome mutant telekinesis power.
