Sam at Golden Rule Jones passed me the hat, so here are my answers:
You’re stuck inside Fahrenheit 451. Which book do you want to be saved?
The Iliad. No doubt about it. One of my all time favorites—this epic contains too much about what it is to be human to allow it to burn.
Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?
I had a huge crush on Johnny Tremain in elementary school. He seems hot when you’re 9.
The last book you bought was…?
Perdido Street Station by China Miéville
The last book you read was…?
Bulletproof Girl by Quinn Dalton
What are you currently reading?
Perdido Street Station by China Miéville, The First Poets: Lives of the Ancient Greek Poets by Michael Schmidt, and Snow Flower & the Secret Fan by Lisa See. My TBR list is huge. Next up I have some Harry Matthews, an Alexander Hamilton biography, and who knows what else.
Five books you would take to a desert island…
Only 5? Damn, that’s scary. Can a series count as one? Then I would take the Dorothy Dunnett series ‘The Lymond Chronicles’. And Samuel Pepys’ diaries. Those would last a while. And then Moby Dick, War and Peace, and Infinite Jest (because I would have all the time in the world to finally read the whole thing).
