A Bookish Meme

Pharyngula::A bookish meme
Via the blog Pharyngula, a rather different book meme.


You’re stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be? (Ie, which book do you want to memorize?)
So many choices, so many possibilities. I’ll go with Silverlock, because some of the songs and stuff will make it easier to remember.
Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?
Absolutely.
The last book you bought is:
Komarr, by Lois M Bujold
The last book you read:
That I finished? Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett
What are you currently reading?
As you can see on the sidebar on the main page, Roma Eterna, by Robert Silverberg
Five books you would take to a deserted island:
Ay yi yi! I’m going to cheat a bit by using Omnibus editions.
Complete Book of Amber, Roger Zelazny
Silverlock, John Myers Myers
The Complete Dying Earth, by Jack Vance
Cosmos, Carl Sagan
Dictionary of Imaginary Places, Alberto Manguel
Who are you going to pass this stick to (3 persons)? And Why?
Not that a bunch of people read this, but I’d pick < a href="http://www.skyseastone.net/itsog/">Arref,
Amber
and Ginger
