Even though I ended up kicking myself over the last online meme I took on, I had to bow to Cagey's challenge to answer these questions and "tag" other people to do the same. Here are the questions and my answers:
1. You're stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be saved?
This is such a tough question! I guess I'd have to forego books I appreciate for pure enjoyment and choose my encyclopedic dictionary for its wealth of information on a variety of subjects.
2. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?
I'm sure I did when I was younger, but I don't remember any of them.
3. The last book you purchased?
According to my Amazon records, my most recent purchase was We Thought You Would Be Prettier: True Tales of the Dorkiest Girl Alive by Laurie Notaro. It hasn't arrived yet, though.
4. What are you currently reading?
At bedtime I've been reading The Golden Rule of Schmoozing: The Authentic Practice of Treating Others Well by Aye Jaye. It's a little cheesy, but I think it has some good advice for interacting with other people in positive ways.
Five books you would take to a deserted island?
I'm going to follow everyone else's lead by including some series: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy five-volume trilogy, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Gone With the Wind, the Harry Potter series (as many volumes as are available when I arrive on the island), and the US Army Survival Manual (in case I'm obliged to do more than sit around and read all the time).
