Ouch! The Stick at Last

Finally, someone struck me!
You’re stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be?
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader–I think it’s my favorite book of all time. I want to be Lucy. I want to know Reepicheep. It’s an adventure and it’s spiritual, and most of all it has Aslan and Dufflepuds.

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?
While I share the appreciation for Calvin O’Keefe noted by some of my blogging friends, my all-time literary crush is Mr. Darcy in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. That’s the guy I would like to have pin me against the wall and kiss me. It’s the cool, smoldering ones I dig. (Have I said too much?)

The last book you bought is:
It’s not here yet, but I just ordered At Knit’s End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much, by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, otherwise known as The Yarn Harlot.

The last book you read:
Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, by Gregory Maguire

What are you currently reading?
The Art of Forgiveness, by Lewis Smedes
New and Selected Poems, Volume One, by Mary Oliver
The Pilot’s Wife, by Anita Shreve

Five books you would take to a deserted island:

The Bible
, preferably the Harper Collins Study Bible NRSV
The Riverside Shakespeare
The Chronicles of Narnia (if I can count this as one.)
The Lord of the Rings
and if not a Complete Jane Austen, then Pride and Prejudice.

Now that my stick envy is relieved, I pass this to:
and Dabney
and ChurchGal
Have fun!
