Another fun book quiz!



This one's quick and easy...take it in my comments section or on your own blog!

You’re stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be?--I guess I don't know enough about the book...I've never read it or seen the movie, although I know it's about book burning and a group of people who memorize books. If the question is what book would I memorize, I think it would be Psalms or Isaiah from the Bible.

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?--Oh, yeah, many. Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte was probably the first. The original "bad boy"!

The last book you bought is: I honestly don't remember. Probably something at the airport to read on a flight.

The last book you read: Summer's End, by Irish author Mary Ryan. Got it at the library. I can't recommend it to everyone, but it was very compelling.




What are you currently reading?--Nothing at the moment, believe it or not, because I'm supposed to be getting ready for my Texas trip! I WILL have to have something to read on the plane,though...preferably something very suspenseful and page-turning.


Five books you would take to a deserted island:

The Bible
Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte
Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen
Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, by C. S. Lewis

(Although it might be prudent to have The SAS Survival Handbook on hand!)

You’re stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be?The Wind in the Willows

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?--Not exactly a crush, but I thought Tom Joad (The Grapes of Wrath) was braver than brave.

The last book you bought is:Guide to Vegan Substitutions. I know, a thriller!

The last book you read: Stigma by Phillip Hawley. Medical thriller/mystery...different for me, it was pretty exciting, but got a little confusing at the end.




What are you currently reading? Mary Barton by Elizabeth Gaskell. Discovered this author recently. A contemporary of Dickens , she writes of the struggles of the working class in early nineteenth century England. I am nearly half through, and really enjoying it.
Five books you would take to a deserted island:
The Grapes of Wrath, the wind in the Willows, Sense and Sensibility, an O. Henry collection and Joy in the Morning by Betty Smith . oh , and The Bible, too!
