You're stuck inside Fahrenheit 451. What book do you want to be?
Peter Beagle's The Last Unicorn, because there's a quiet magic to being human.
Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?
Well, I was totally gonna get married to Apollo when I was younger. What? Most women want to fall in love with a god. I actually did.
The last book you bought is...
A bad romance novelette. I cringe in shame.
Five books you would take to a deserted island:
It really depends on how long I'd be on that deserted island.
- Les Misérables, Victor Hugo - The unabridged version, of course, because that sucker is long.
- The Last Unicorn, Peter Beagle
- The Fountainhead, Ayn Rand
- The Lexus and the Olive Tree, Thomas Friedman - What? It's not as dorky as it sounds, trust me.
- 75,000+ Baby Names for the 21st Century, Lori Cooper - Not that I am planning on getting pregnant while on a desert island, HELLO - but I need something to pass the time with. Whether this sounds plausible or not, it is actually very amusing to sit down with a book of baby names and string them together. Also, I do not have this book in my collection. Yet.
What are you currently reading?
Blogs. The Collected Works of e.e. cummings. Various and sundry romance novels. Newspapers. An entire stack of files on production centers for various types of products (well, duh). The Codex Alimentarius for Virgin Coconut Oil, along with various PDF files on its legal status as a food supplement. Animo, courtesy of my LaSallian officemates. A booklet on Fair Trade from Oxfam.
I know, I know, even my reading list needs to get a life.
Who are you going to pass this stick to and why?
Miguel, because he actually reads and I wonder if he's going to bring Star Wars stuff with him to that hypothetical desert island.
I can't think of anyone else. Anyone else want to take it? Just let me know, though, so I can check out your reading list and wallow in how much cooler it is compared to mine.
