"I have nothing against books!"

Got this from aka_monty. Anyone who can tell me which movie my post title comes from will get a big wet internet kiss from moi.

1. You're stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be? Hm, I don't even know if I ever read Fahrenheit 451, and if I did I don't remember it well. I am going to go by aka's hints and assume that its a book I would want to memorize. So I will say The Bell Jar, by Sylvia Plath. I have read it 100's of times and love it more each time.

2. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? From a book? No, can't say I have.

3. The last book you bought is: I just bought The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger (I think that's her name) based on Honestyrain's recommendation. And she is right, I love it so far.

4. The last book you read: The last book I finished reading was About a Boy by Nick Hornby. Good read. Never saw the movie.

5. What are you currently reading? Up now is The Time Traveler's Wife, which is really great. Next up is the new Ya Ya Sisterhood book.

6. Five books you would take to a deserted island…and why? I'll have to follow Monty's lead and also take a survival handbook (smart choice, girl). I'd also take The Bell Jar (see above, its something I can read and read and read and never tire of), She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb (because its a great book to read when you feel like you might be unraveling and I am sure after being deserted awhile I'd be unraveling at a steady rate), From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler (yes, its a real book. Its a kids book, and its awesome. These kids run away and live at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.) and A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein (for its humor and uplift-ingness).

7. What 3 bloggers are you going to pass the stick to, and why?
Aw, I hate passing the stick. I'm afraid no one will do it! Ok, Ok, I pass the stick to (and I hope you all like to read!):

Have fun!

Scully said...

I LOVE books.

Movie is My Blue Heaven.

Time Traveller's Wife is brilliant. Oh I love that book.

And you'll adore Ya-Ya. The movie is atrcious though.

Like About a Boy with Hugh Grant, but the ending is very different from the book. The book is better.

A big mmmmmwwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh to scully for identifying the movie. I didn't think anyone would get that one!

trine said...

Rats, Scully beat me to it! :)

I dearly love that movie...

Thanks for taking up the book challenge...and smart girl to take a survival guide. ;)

Bridget Unnel said...

Woo-hoo!! Thanks for NOT passing that stick my way. Those are not easy questions. I much prefer the "vanilla or chocolate," and "McDona;ds or Burger King" variety.... ;)

MommaK said...

I, too, am thankful I was not tagged. So we are reading the same book, hmmm?? Another coincidence! I do think that we should speak to our families about the twins possibility.

Dawn said...

I will do it tomorrow I promise!

So all I have to do is answer the questions right?

youd be better off making one up!

PS i dig jesey girl. what i know of them. i live in long beach ca, its LA's jersey. rude and rough.

trine said...

say what you want, deryke, but i was honest and i am proud of being a sad and nerdy bookworm...

having said that, most people probably WOULDN'T want to date me after reading my answers...

Shirazi said...

Thanks for coming by again. Being a writer of books, I appriciate what you have written to draw attention to books. Not many people read them these days.

Probably a good thing no one has tagged me on this one. I'd be embarrassed by the lack of content I have read lately--and what I have read has been trashy romances. Bodice rippers and contemporaries. I love me a good romance.

deryke said...

wordy people are cool too!

dont forget that
