…and now it’s here, courtesy of Bookish Gardener:
You’re stuck inside Fahrenheit 451. Which book do you want to be? Boswell’s Life of Johnson.
Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? Matilda Wilson, in Anthony Powell’s A Dance to the Music of Time.
The last book you bought was…? New Orleans UnMasqued, by S. Frederick Starr (thank you, Alicublog).
The last book you read was…? A Distant Prospect, by Lord Berners.
What are you currently reading? W.H. Auden, Prose, Volume II: 1939-1948.
Five books you would take to a desert island… Boswell’s Life, The Brothers Karamazov (or maybe Demons), the Library of America Flannery O’Connor, The Portrait of a Lady, and A la recherche. (We’ll assume for the sake of argument that the guest hut on the island in question contains a King James Bible and a complete set of Shakespeare, just as all such quizzes about music really ought to take Mozart for granted.)
Who are you passing this stick on to and why? Duh, who else? Go get ’em, Girl.
(And yes, I cheated. I’ll get back to Louis this afternoon.)
