    I don’t know, how about poetry by Rumi? I’d like to feel the feelings he expressed as often as he did.

    Don’t laugh now but either the Winnie the Pooh series or Peter Pan – we loves imaginary food see.

    Something by Ralph Waldo Emerson..w/o all the hard parts I dont understand 🙂 There are portions of some of his stuff (Essay on Friendship for example) that feels like he has read my mind and is answering questions I haven’t even articulated yet….but then the next minute I don’t have a clue what he’s talking about…

    I’m lame – I’d like to have written any number of anthropology books I own… the amount of travel and research done by the authors is just awesome. I wish I could do those things.

    East of Eden by John Steinbeck

  6. Joy says:

    Just A Mom, that was an awesome book. It’s so hard for me to pick just one so I’m going with two, Peyton Place and To Kill A Mockingbird. Valley Of The Dolls was good too…..I gotta go or I’ll just keep naming more!!!

    Tough question, Joy. I agree with your selection of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” but I’d also add Neil Gaiman’s “American Gods” and Jeffrey Eugenides’ “Middlesex.” Oh, and Christopher Moore’s “Lamb.” And Amy Tan’s “Saving Fish From Drowning.” The list could go on and on and I’d look like I had multiple personalities. I do have to say I’m quite fond of the series of stories I’ve just written, which is a good thing because if I didn’t like them, I sure wouldn’t attempt to pawn them off on the rest of the world.

  8. Rumi rocks.

    I’d like to have written “West with the Night” by Beryl Markham, because to have written this memoir means I would have not only garnered the respect of Hemingway, but I would have had to live her life, which was pretty amazing.
