Time Waster

Here's a little time waster for those of us who read, or write, or do both with equal enthusiasm.  Unequal enthusiasm will work equally well, but doesn't look as good in print.  All answers are presumed to be factual and true to the best knowledge of the author.

Credit to The Guardian for the questions.

The book I am currently reading:

The last book that made me cry:
Not answered. The work in question was so bad, so poorly written, that I shed a few tears at the thought of people spending money on this terrible work, and then not being able to get a refund.

The last book that made me laugh:
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
by Mark Twain

The book I couldn’t finish:
A Tale of Two Cities
by Charles Dickens

The book I’m most ashamed not to have read:
