Books Meme

I confess I like books but as I have only managed to complete a small section (those adjacent to me) of the cataloguing at Librarything, so I found trying to recall all of those enjoyable reads a bit hard, still here goes:

A book meme (thingie) from HP

1. Name one book that changed your life: the Iliad

2. One book you've read more than once: most of the Flashman novels, again and again.

3. One book you'd want on a desert island: Capital (all volumes) by Herr Marx

4. One book that made you laugh: an Evil Cradling by Brian Keenan

5. One book that made you cry: The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

6. One book you wish you'd written: Borstal Boy by Brendan Behan

7. One book you wish had never been written: anything by David Irving. He’s such a despicable little shit.

8. One book you're currently reading: several as is my habit, dipping in to Brothers Behan, Ben-Gurion & the Holocaust, Forgotten Millions and Nazi Germany & Neutral Europe (see the theme there!). Meaning to finish: Genocide and Rescue, by David Cesarani (Ed), started it ages ago, half way thru, a fairly small book but harrowing tale.

9. One book you've been meaning to read: French Revolution by George Lefebvre

10. Tag 5 people: Judeosphere, SimplyJews, Gertrude Bell Jar, Brett Lock and Bob From Brockley

11. (additional question), make up the titles of two imaginary books: In all modesty by George Galloway and The Pleasures of Celibacy by Tommy Sheridan.

Thanks for the tag. I'll get on to it. My first meme tag in 18 months of blogging! I like your list, by the way
