A book that changed my life, besides the Bible:
Spilt Grape Juice and 12 Steps for the Recovering Pharisee
A book I have read more than once, besides the Harry Potter series:
The Far Arena A wonderful novel about life in Ancient Rome
A book I would take with me if I were stuck on a desert island:
My best answer would be an inflatable book, so I Googled that and found this. Not only is there a book, there is a treasure map for the island!
A book that made me laugh:
I Stink by Kate and Jim McMullan. A board book with fragrant presentation of the alphabet
A book that made me cry:
I cry at Hallmark commercials! So pretty much anything that involves tragedy/romance
Cold Sassy Tree by Olive Anne Burns would probably fit nicely here. It was recommended by my mother-in-law several years ago. She said it was a pretty good discription of what southern life was like when she grew up.
A book that I wish had been written:
A book that I wish had never been written:
Joseph Smith's book
A book that I have been meaning to read:
Blue Like Jazz, I am at least half way through this one and like it, I just got bogged down and didn't finish it.
I am currently reading:
Open Season by C.J. Box. (just finished this one) He is a Wyoming author with an award winning first book, I checked out his second book today.
Childrens Writers & Illustrators Market 2007
And the Ladies of the Club needs some sort of category of its own. It was a wonderful book written by a woman in her late 80's.

My car and sunglasses have been restored to their rightful place, they came back with a whopping bill for replaced seals and a timing belt.
I am 8 lessons into a 12 lesson writing for children class, hoping to learn how to publish a manuscript.
Johnny blogged about our Labor Day drive. We hiked along the Clark's Fork of the Yellowstone River. There is a place where the river has sculpted the granite into sleek curves. Our friend is peering into a round hole that tunnels all the way through the rock.
The hole reminds me of looking into someone's ear!
There is a wonderfully serene waterfall above the rocks. It is a small waterfall that you can step across at the top. In the bushes above the cascade there are delicate spider webs.
This month at work, I am covering workout equipment from the local college and exam tables from the hospital.
Last week I called up an old skill and helped a friend pack all of her dishes, crystal, and glassware. Today we moved it and carried several boxes up 13 stairs. Whew!!
