The Quiz; Part Two

As David notes below there is a quiz/meme making its rounds. Since I have been tagged by both David below and Phil at his home blog, I figure I should answer the questions. So here we go:

You’re stuck inside Fahrenheit 451. Which book do you want to be?

Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings – what adventure.

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?

Ah, no.

The last book you bought was . . . ?

The Last Call for Blackford Oakes by William F. Buckley

The last book you read was . . . ?

The Man Who Was Thursday by G.K. Chesterton

What are you currently reading?

The Last Call for Blackford Oakes by William F. Buckley
(I am also struggling through Catch-22 by Joseph Heller. It’s absurd and bitingly funny at times but also seems to be going nowhere)

Five books you would take to a desert island…

Since I have all the time in the world (theoretically), it might be fun to read large works I have avoided taking the time to read:
1) The Bible (I have read it but could use to read more)
2) Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
3) Moby Dick by Herman Melville
4) The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn
5) David Copperfield by Charles Dickens

Who are you passing this stick on to and why?

I am not sure who has taken the quiz and who hasn’t. Let’s try Chekhov’s Mistress and Tingle Alley for kicks.

I work in communications and public affairs. I try to squeeze in as much reading as I can while still spending time with my wife and two kids (and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan Wolverines during football season).
