Spreading the Book Meme

I've been tagged by the book meme by The Uncredible Hallq, so here is my contribution:

A book that changed my life:
Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian: And Other Essays on Religion and Related Subjects was the first book on atheism I ever read. It helped me clarify my thoughts on religion at an early age and showed me that I was not alone in a world of believers.

A book I've read more than once:
Many to choose from in this category, but I think I'll go with something different and pick Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream.

A book I would take with me if I were stuck on a desert island:
That is a tough one. My first thought would be some sort of wilderness survival guide, but that takes all the fun out of the question. What could I imagine reading over and over again? I'd probably go with one of the books containing the complete works of Edgar Allen Poe.

A book that made me laugh:
Franken's Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right.

A book that I wish had been written:
How George W. Bush Lost The Presidency

A book that I wish had never been written:
Mein Kampf

A book I've been meaning to read:
Dawkins' The God Delusion will be the next book I buy.

I'm currently reading:
I just started Dennett's Breaking the Spell: Religion as a Natural Phenomenon.
