There’s a meme on books making the rounds in cyberspace, and it got me to thinking:
A book that changed your life. Stuart Chase, The Tyranny of Words.
A book that you’ve read more than once. The 1983 Code of Canon Law.
A book that you’d want on a desert island. The Liturgy of the Hours.
A book that made you laugh. Evelyn Waugh, Decline and Fall.
A book that made you cry. Martin Gilbert, The Holocaust.
A book that you wish had never been written. Mao Tse-Tung, The Little Red Book.
A book that you hope someone will write. Incrementa in Progressu 1917 Codicis Iuris Canonici.
A book that you wish you had written. Anders Winroth, The Making of Gratian’s Decretum.
A book that you’re currently reading. Charles Journet, The Meaning of Grace.
A book that you’ve been meaning to read. The Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches.
Actually, I like personal reading logs and keep one posted myself. I think they’re a good idea in several respects, and wish more people would join in!
