I like books.

One book you’re currently reading: A History of the Kings of Britain, by Geoffrey of Monmouth.

One book that changed your life: Evelina, by Frances Burney.

One book you’d want on a deserted island: A bound collection of everything written by Stephen King. Or a book about how to survive on a deserted island.

One book you’ve read more than once: It, by Stephen King. And/or all the Harry Potter books.

One book you’ve never been able to finish: Oliver Twist, by Charles Dickens.

One book that made you laugh: Le Morte D'arthur, by Sir Thomas Malory.

One book that made you cry:
The Green Mile, by Stephen King

One book you keep rereading: It, by Stephen King.

One book you’ve been meaning to read: Cecilia, by Frances Burney.

One book you believe everyone should read: No particular title, but I think everyone should read a book that challenges them intellectually at least once a year :-P

Grab the nearest book. Open it to page 56. Find the fifth sentence: "His goodness must not be a partial and transitory act, but a conscious superfluity, which costs him nothing and of which he is unconscious." From Walden, by Henry David Thoreau.

"He argued that both sets of factors produce mortality and thus act to reduce populations, but that only density-dependent factors, by the very nature of their action, are able to govern the average population abundance or equilibrium level."
