Tag! I'm it.

Cagey has tagged me for a Literary Quiz. Just so we are on the same page (dontcha love my hilarious pun? DONTCHA?), I tend towards pop fiction, rather than classical literature, so my answers will reflect that.

1. You're stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be saved?
All of them. Except for Bill Clinton's book. That sucker was just too damn long. The book, I mean. (sheepish grin)

2. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?
Ranger, from Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series (see question #5-b) - he's a dark, mysterious bounty hunter who can make a woman's toes curl from across the room. And he smells good.

3. The last book you purchased?
"The Dark Tower VII" by Stephen King - still haven't had time to read this monster 800+ page book. One sitting would be ideal. Ya right.

4. What are you currently reading?
I'm listening to "Between a Rock and a Hard Place" by Aaron Ralston - this is the story of the young adventurer had his arm trapped by a boulder while hiking solo in the deserted canyonlands in Utah. He ended up cutting off his own arm to survive. Powerful stuff, especially since the audiobook is read by the Aaron himself.

5. Five books you would take to a deserted island?
(as others have done, I've cheated with some book series)
a. Stephen King's Dark Tower series - I would definitely be rescued before I was done reading this epic 7-book series...but I would continue reading all the way home.

b. Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series ("One for the Money", "Two for the Dough", etc.) - I would need some laughs while stuck on the island and these books make me laugh...out loud...enough to frequently wake Loving Husband.

c. J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series - whilst stuck on the island, it would be nice to think of magical forces that could allow me to levitate, make cheeseburgers appear out of thin air, etc. These books would allow me that pleasure. And if another person calls these "kid's books", I'll kick their ass. These are awesome books for anyone would loves a good tale.

d. Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch detective series - these are seedy, dark, detective mysteries that always keep you guessing until the end. Gotta keep that mind sharp while on the island.

e. A Dictionary - I love reading the dictionary! And I'd have a hell of a vocabulary by the time I got rescued.

Loved the Ranger comment. However, I always thought Joe Morelli was hotter!

I love thumbing through my dictionary, too! In fact, one time in junior high some mean girls were snarking on me and one commented "she probably reads the dictionary". gulp.
