Book Meme

I've seen this meme on several different blogs, including TexasBestGrok, LlamaButchers, and Downtown Lad.


You're stuck inside Fahrenheit 451. Which book do you want to be?

I still don't understand the question, and I couldn't find the ... Never mind, Shiela's explanation was in the yips of the Llamabutchers post. Basically, what book would you memorize, to save for posterity.

Emergence, David R. Palmer

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?

Not really. I can imagine various fun scenarios, though.

The last book you bought was...?

Galveston, Sean Stewart and Singularity Sky, Charles Stross.

The last book you read was...?

Permanence, Karl Schroeder

What are you currently reading?


Five books you would take to a desert island...

I'm asssuming (1) I don't need How To books and (2) trilogies are ok, intermnible series [cough, Robert Jordan, cough] are not.

1) The Bible. Given a huge amount of time I might read the whole thing.
2) The Collected works of Shakespeare.
3) Owlflight, Owlsight, Owlknight by Mercedes Lackey and Larry Dixon.

4) The Door into Fire, The Door into Shadow, and The Door into Sunset. Diane Duane.
5) The Great Book of Amber. Roger Zelazny. Yeah, ok, so it was originally published as 10 separate books. I've got them in one volume.
Who are you passing this stick on to and why?

No one, very few people would I consider tagging with this, and they've already done it.

Update: slightly clarified, one answer added that I forgot.
