4. One book that made you laugh:

5. One book that made you cry:
Lots! But just finished The Bachelor Boys, by Kate Saunders – gosh, that made a huge lump in my throat, and I started tearing up at my desk at work.

6. One book that you wish had been written:
All You Ever Needed to Know About Men (condensed version)

7. One book that you wish had never been written:
Hm, I don’t know… usually if I don’t like something I don’t bother finishing it. I guess anything that perpetuates the ill-treatment of women, like Surefire Ways of Getting Into a Woman’s Pants, or something like that. I’m sure they’re out there, too.

8. One book you’re currently reading:
The Room-Mating Season, by Rona Jaffe and The Husband, by Dean Koontz

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read:
Definitely Dead, the next in the Southern Vampire series by Charlaine Harris; The Well-Decorated Cake, one of many cake decorating books I would like to acquire

10. One tedious book you managed to get through:
Hm… lemme see… Well, when I was younger my father read The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings to us, but I can’t think of something I’ve made myself read. I DO want to attempt Anna Karenina, but haven’t tried as yet. Usually if something is painful to get through, I give up halfway through.
