1. One book that changed your life.

Brian Kernighan and Rob Pike, The UNIX Programming Environment.

2. One book you’ve read more than once

Tracy Kidder, The Soul of a New Machine.

3. One book you’d want on a desert island

Mary Doria Russell, The Sparrow.

4. One book that made you laugh

Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys.

5. One book that made you cry

Douglas Coupland, Microserfs.

6. One book you wish had been written

Theology and cooking: Recipes for a whole community.

7. One book you wish had never been written

Tim LaHeye and Jerry Jenkins, Left Behind.

8. One book you’re currently reading

Janet Browne, Charles Darwin: Voyaging.

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read

Steve Ross, Marked.

10. Tag five people

They’ll know when it happens.

Meme originates at Ben’s Faith and Theology blog.

P.S. Congratulations to Jo for submitting her PhD thesis. All the best for the examination.
