I've been hit with The Stick.

You're stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be?

1984, for the irony.

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?

Not really, no.

The last book you bought is:

Anne Bishop's Dreams Made Flesh.

The last book you read:

I finished "The Wisdom of the Mythtellers" before I left for Phoenix.

What are you currently reading?

Robert Holdstock's "The Iron Grail" - the second book of his Merlin Codex. This actually ties in well with my previous read, since Holdstock has an uncanny ability to write pre-literate/pre-agricultural myth types in a way that feels real, and alien, much like reading actual myths from such cultures. I've also recently found out that there were in fact four Mythago Wood novels, not just the two I have. It looks like the Merlin Codex is popular enough to get at least the first two republished, so there's a chance that I might be able to get my hands on the other two.

Five books you would take to a deserted island:

  1. How to escape from a deserted island

  2. Desert Island survival techniques

  3. Raftbuilding for castaways

  4. Signal fires to radio beacons: a hands on guide to calling for help

  5. Home desalinization techniques: how to clean water using sand and palm leaves!

Who are you going to pass this stick to (3 persons)? And Why?
corwin77 because he needs to be hit with a stick
tryslora because I know she reads an incredible amount
djinnthespazz because I want to make sure she notices that Robert Holdstock is writing again
