Book Meme

[Edited: I think I broke some kind of blogoprotocol by not mentioning whence came the meme-tag (sounds like a Dutch word). Unfortunately, I'm too lazy to make the books links. Google is everyone's friend though, so I leave it as an exercise to the reader]

1. One book that changed your life? Haven't found it yet :(

2. One book you have read more than once? Shogun

3. One book you would want on a desert island? Portnoy's complaint

4. One book that made you laugh? The Adventures of the Brave Soldier Shvejk

5. One book that made you cry? The Joy Luck Club

6. One book you wish had been written? What G-d really wants

7. One book you wish had never been written? Understanding Differential Equations

8. One book you are currently reading? Born to Kvetch

9. One book you have been meaning to read? Juggling for Dummies

10. Now tag five people.

Wow, the only one of those that I have read is Joy Luck Club - but it was beautiful.

Have mem-posted, and tagged others.
Will read the meme-posts of others as they appear. This should be interesting.

I've encountered two cohorts that drop first person subjects in their sentences. Telegram senders and British subjects, (or those trying to impersonate them, I suppose).

I wonder where this curious grammatical mode originated?
