I Normally Don't Do These Things: Book Tag
Good friend and future preacher-of-the-year Ann Pittman tagged me. I normally skip these things, but this one is worth it:
- One book that changed your life: Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism by John Shelby Spong. The timing and the subject matter couldn't have been more pertinent than when I read this in 2002.
- One book that you’ve read more than once: I rarely will read a book more than once. I highlight and make note of the best parts for easy reference later.
- One book you’d want on a desert island: A book with an inflatable raft and talking parrot inside. The raft to get off the island and the parrot for companionship and eventually dinner.
- One books that made you laugh: America by Jon Stewart and the writers of The Daily Show. I'm ready for those guys to be back.
- One book that made you cry: N/A
- One book that you wish had been written: What You Should Have Said: A Manual To Your Life To Prevent You From Saying the Wrong Thing. It would be magical and look into the future and make sure I didn't say something ignorant or flippant to anyone I love (or like).
- One book that you wish had never been written: I won't answer this one. Most authors (I think) are proud of their work, no matter how much someone else might hate it.
- Two books you’re currently reading: What Should I Do With My Life? by Po Bronson and Leadership is an Art by Max De Pree.
- One book you’ve been meaning to read: The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama.
- Now tag five (or so) people: I never tag people. But, as it turns out, I did these about a year and a half ago. I like how the answers have changed. Except #5.
