Follow Friday – Dec. 22
Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkie and Allison Can Read. Every Friday our good hosts give us a prompt to answer and unleash the book blogger community upon it. It’s all a good bit of fun. Also, Merry Christmas everybody!
Our prompt this week is: If you had to spend eternity inside the pages of a book which book would you choose and why?
My kneejerk answer is Lord of the Rings. Since the elves are immortal, spending an eternity inside the book might actually be possible. Then I thought about it some and realized I really like plumbing and flush toilets. So, I was thinking Harry Potter because I want to do magic and have a wand and go to Hogwarts and be a Ravenclaw and possibly turn myself into a cat if I could manage it. But I don’t want to copy Parajunkie.
Then I was thinking Stardust by Neil Gaiman because the other side of the wall is Fairy Land but then we get into the whole not having plumbing thing again. Why are all the really great places without plumbing? Does fantasy have something against hygiene? Can’t I just be, like, the Page Master or something and just have all the books? I don’t want to choose!
Then I realized that characters in fantasy books never use the toilet, so that must mean they don’t need to and if I’m in the book, that would mean I wouldn’t ever have to worry about having enough toilet paper again. So we’re back to Lord of the Rings and elves. I want to be the elf that is in charge of the library in Rivendell and spends all her time reading. Can I have that? Yes? That would be nice.
God, just ignore me. I’m running on fumes and too much coffee.
