Book 'em Danno

Since it's felt like 2 years since I was tagged by Moof, Dream Mom, and Runner Girl, (it's only been about 2 weeks), and since it's felt like the entire blogosphere has answered these questions except me, here's what I've come up with:

One book that changed your life?
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Steven Covey

One book you have read more than once?
The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell

One book you would want on a desert island?
An Island to Oneself: Six Years on a Desert Island by Tom Neale

One book that made you laugh?
Sein Language by Jerry Seinfeld

One book that made you cry?
Report from Ground Zero by Dennis Smith

One book you wish had been written?
Not sure about this one

One book you wish had never had been written?
Blogging for Dummies -- HA!

One book you are currently reading?
Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazzi

One book you have been meaning to read?
The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown

I also read the ground zero book, it made me cry too. I think it would anyone. I just asked some questions on my blog about 9/11. If you get a chance stop over.

Seinfeld? Ah...I loved that book. I am reading the DaVinci Code right now. I am enjoying it a great deal.

Sein language is the only one on your list I have read. We'll chalk it up to a short attention span ;-)

I'm currently reading David McCullough's 1776. It only took me a year to buy it!

I’m involved with a health care advocacy group that is supported by Dennis Smith. He admires nurses and is one of the nicest guys on the planet. His book is a classic, and should be required reading in school.

jbwritergirl said... that's a concept. I haven't had time to read a whole book in several years even though I have a book shelf full of them screaming at me.

Don't get me wrong I love to read just can't seem to fit it in.

Hey there Dr A!
I was tagged but didn't do it. I am a weekly visitor of the library and read mostly Art and Spiritual books.
I though it wouldn't be relevant to my readers as I already have a sidebar of books.
Great blog, I am going to start popping around from now on. Cheerio!

I've read Seinfeld and the Ground Zero book. I have a severe case of Da Vinci code resistance though.

Tara & Bernard said...

I was so looking forward to reading "The Da Vinci Code," and finally my friend lent it to me, along with the prequel "Angels and Demons."

I'm curious to know if anyone else feels this way about the books, but although I enjoyed reading them (except when I got to the end of A&D, which I really did not like) I found them to be more like a movie you might watch one night with a glass of wine to relax, they were interesting and entertaining and had a nice European flair, but ultimately I felt like all the controversy around them built them up to impossible heights and they just were't that fulfilling.

And the movie was pretty disappointing, too.

Dr. A said...

I know I'm probably the only one in America who hasn't read Da Vinci code, yet. I'm with HP, I'm having resistance to it, too. Plus, it's probably never going to hold up to the hype and I'll be disappointed anyway.

I've heard of 1776 by David McCulllough, that sound interesting.

As you can tell, I gravitate toward business/management books. I don't know why, I just have.

Thanks everyone for stopping by!

Dreaming again said...

I didn't read either Angels & Demons or The DaVinci code till fairly recently, either. Like Tara, I didn't like A&D very much (hated the ending). I really only read TDC because one evening I was in a local bookstore and an older lady was looking around for TDC. When the very helpful staff person directed (and escorted) her to the fiction area, she went absolutely ballistic and started screaming. She insisted the book was NOT fiction and did NOT belong in the fiction section.

I figured that any book that could cause anyone to make that much of a fuss was worth at least 1 reading. Haven't bothered to see the movie; can't say I really liked the book all that much. Really like the illustrated version that came out though..the pictures of the areas talked about in the story are lovely.

The Da Vinci code is like the movie Titanic - over hyped. It's nice to be able to say I've neither read nor watched either.
