The One Book Meme

My two readers know by now that I can't resist a book meme. I got this from CW, who in the tradition of fine memes everywhere got it from someplace else. Anyhow, here goes:

One book you’re currently reading: Marc Gascoigne and Christian Dunn, eds., Let the Galaxy Burn (short fiction collection, Warhammer 40,000).
One book that changed your life: Paulo Coehlo's The Alchemist.
One book you’d want on a deserted island: Robert A. Heinlein, Time Enough For Love.
One book you’ve read more than once: Harold Rabinowitz and Rob Kaplan, A Passion for Books.
One book you’ve never been able to finish: Tim Powers, The Anubis Gates.
One book that made you laugh: George Carlin, 3 Times Carlin: An Orgy of George.
One book that made you cry: N/A (have not found one yet)
One book you keep rereading: Gabriel García Márquez, One Hundred Years of Solitude
One book you’ve been meaning to read: Douglas Adams, A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
One book you believe everyone should read: Alan Moore, Watchmen.

Like CW, I found challenging not repeating books because for me a couple of these could fall in different categories. Now I could also expand a bit on some of these titles, but the meme is to simply list them. So we'll leave the explanations and commentary for some other time.
