Another book meme

Captain's Log, Stardate 01.23.2008

Michelle tagged me!

One book that changed your life.
I actually have two:
A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Dragonsong by Anne McCaffrey
They both opened new worlds to me and made me dream about writing my own.

One book that you have read more than once.
Persuasion by Jane Austen

One book you would want on a desert island.
The Bible

Two books that made you laugh.
Theodora’s Diary by Penny Culliford
SAHM I Am by Meredith Efken

One book that made you cry.
One book that made me both laugh and cry was Reconstructing Natalie by Laura Jensen Walker

One book you wish you'd written.
Any Harry Potter book. I mean, it’s so creative, with lots of conflict (but not too much) and terrific plotting.

One book you wish had never been written.
Shoot me if you want, but I can’t stand Wuthering Heights. I’ve tried several times to read this book—I even tried it on audio book once—and I simply can’t finish it. I don’t like any of the characters! Why should I suffer through this “classic” when I can’t stand any of the people in it?

Two books you are currently reading.
Her Unlikely Family by Missy Tippens
Skid by Rene Gutteridge (releases May 2008)

One book you've been meaning to read.
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See

Any of you! Leave a comment with the answers or a link to the blog post where you’ve participated in the meme with me!


  1. I took the challange.
    I never read Wuthering Heights either
    for that matter i didn't read quite a few of those sort of books.

  2. Oh thank God there is someone else in the world who did not like Wuthering Heights. I read the whole book. I'm like that; once I start a book I have to finish it. But I still hated the characters just as much (if not more) at the end as I did at the beginning. I honestly do not know how it became such a classic.

  3. Cami,
    Thanks for playing along.


  4. I posted mine on my blog:

    And amen to the whole Wuthering Heights thing. I hated it (though I did actually finish it and believe me, you aren't missing anything if you quit halfway through).

  5. Posted mine on my blog:

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

How can I pray for you?

Photo credit: 日本語訳は下をご覧ください。 Just when I was feeling better, I had another bad IBS flare up! I had a really wretched 2 weeks in September, but I’m finally starting to feel better. Despite the lost two weeks, I got right back to work and now I'm getting close to finishing book 5 in my Regency series. Please continue to pray that my health will be stable so that I can write without getting derailed by my IBS like I was last month. Lord, thank You for all You give to us. You remind us in little ways each day that You are watching over us and that You love us. Help us to have humble hearts that submit to Your will for us, because we know that You love us fiercely and only want what’s best for us. In Jesus’s name, Amen. How can I pray for you today? Please leave me your prayer requests! Prayer requests can sometimes be private things, so to keep your privacy, I’ve made a form you can fill out that will keep your requests just between you and me.
