Tag on something that I seldom use

Yet another Tag, this time its a books tag. I should confess that I am a very bad reader. The number of fingers in my hand will be more than the number of books I have read. Lets see how this tag goes.

One book that changed my life:
Well its not one but three books that changed my life. Any guesses? most of you might have read that book during your school days. Well its the Math, Physics and Chemistry books of Class 12. If I did'nt read these books then I would not be here like this. So these are the books that changed my life.

The book you have read more than once:
Does this mean full book?? Not sure, but the book that I have read many times is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. Since this book is so big, halfway I loose track and start reading from the start again.

One book you would want on dessert island:
How did someone come up with this question??? Reading on a dessert Island?? Tough ask. I dont think I will read anything there. Instead I will find my way to some place where I will get some food to eat.

One book that made you laugh:
Dilbert: The Joy of Work by Scott Adams. This book is awesome to have a nice laugh especially if you like office comedy. Its fund when you think of your manager to be the manager shown in the book. The book also has some nice games to play using your manager. Another book that makes me laugh is Calvin and Hobbes. Its simply brilliant.

One book that made me cry:
Never thought that books can make people cry. Well If I think in that angle, one book that made me sleepless all night is my first year engineering, Chemistry book (Jain & Jain).

One book you wish you had written:
Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code, If I wrote that book, I would have become a millionaire by now.

One book that you wish had never been written:
Its a free World, let everyone write whatever they want.

One book you are currently reading:
Advanced .Net Programming

One book you have been meaning to read:
Kite runner is one book I wish I can read sometime, hopefully. Everyone who have read this book have liked it.

I was tagged by Priya who wonders What happens if she doesnt blog.
Time to tag people, I request Syam (since you are due for a post for long), Barath and Gils to take up this tag.

Varta...

    Nice to know about your favorite book through this tag. I like the Moral Science and English in school days, commenly these books have stories, nice to hear the stores form teachers:) currently i am reading Da Vince Code, i think it will cross a year to finish it, because i am slow reader.
