"Too busy with the crowded hour to fear to live or die." (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

1. One book that changed your life:
Five smooth stones for Pastoral work, Eugene Peterson and Streams of Living Water by Richard Foster.

2. One book that you’ve read more than once:
Haggai. Lord of the Rings by Jrr Tolkien, even the long and boring bits and Ent peotry.
Riald Dahls "Completely unexpected tales", although they were more predictable the second time round.

3. One book you’d want on a desert island:
Collosians . Foucalts Pendulum by Umberto Eco, as its a great primer for inventing more stories

4. One book that made you laugh:
Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams and more Terry Pratchetts than I can poke a librarian at.

5. One book that made you cry:
Taken on Trust By Terry Whaite, in fact just about anything I read, I come from a long line of literary howlers.

6. One book that you wish had been written:
Where to find your single socks/car keys/ pens etc by Paul Clitheroe
Making sense of The Commonwealth Workplace Relations Policy by the Marquis des Sade

7. One book that you wish had never been written:
What is communication by van Schoor, first year would have been far more frivolous without it.

8. One book you’re currently reading:
Connecting by Stanley Clinton on the Subject of Mentoring
With Christ in the School of Prayer by Andrew Murray

9. One book you’ve been meaning to read:
On the Shoulders of Giants by Steven Hawkins

Hi Smoother - thanks - I will perhaps try Vanuatu once recovered - but bone is taking its time- still not healed after 3 months!
Lovely photos by the way.
