Book meme

Okay, I won't be taking any pictures today so I figured I'd fill in the meme that is making the rounds. It seemed appropriate to take this on from Laura Lippman after Old Hag said he wouldn't pass it on to her because of how good she looked in the picture I took at the Edgars. (She did look fantastic)

You're stuck inside Fahrenheit 451. Which book do you want to be?
The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde. He mentions so many other books that it would almost be like being them all.

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?
Far too many to mention ;-)

The last book you bought was...?
The last book I actually paid for myself was The Magdalen Martyrs by Ken Bruen.
But I won Victor Gishler's Suicide Squeeze from Sarah Weinman's website. Got that one signed when he was in town in early April.

The last book you read was...?
Money to Burn by Katy Munger

What are you currently reading?
I've got a couple of them going at the moment:
The Serpent on the Crown by Elizabeth Peters
Murder on Gramercy Park by Victoria Thompson

Five books you would take to a desert island...
Complete works of Shakespeare
Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything
Isaac Asimov's Foundation Trilogy
Complete Harry Potter series - assuming someone actually published it and you could lift a book that big
and of course a book about surviving on desert islands.

Okay, enough of this writing stuff. I need to get back to picture taking.


P.S. Just thought of another book to bring along - To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis. Guess I won't be taking that book on surviving on desert islands after all.
