I've Been Memed...

It's been a while. Computer at home is still messed up, so I check email and blog when and where I can.

Aaron memed me which apparently means I answer the questions he's given me, so here goes...

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

It's been a long time since I've read Fahrenheit 451, but didn't they burn books in that book? Is the question asking which book would I want to burn? If that is the quesion then the answer is that if a Fahrenheit 451 scenario ever happened the book I would want gone would be Fahreneit 9/11.

If the question is which book I would want to preserve then I'll give the Christian answer (and the honest one) which is the Bible.

"Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?"
Yes. Wonder Woman (Linda Carter version.)

"What is the last book you bought?"
"GOAT" by Brad Land is the last book I've purchased. Since I work in a bookstore I'm able to check out certain books and read them then return them. The last book I've taken out of the store is "Gilead" by Marilynn Robinson.

"What is the last book you read?"
The last book I've completed was "Please Don't Come Back from the Moon" by Dean Bakopoulos.

"What are you currently reading?"
"Gilead" by Marilynn Robinson.

"What five books you would take to a deserted island?"

1. The Bible.
2. The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver.
3. The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis.
4. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini.
5. The Divine Conspiracy by Dallas Willard. (I've never read it. I've started several times but decided I need more long blocks of time to get into it. A deserted island would provide those long blocks of time necessary.)

"Who are you going to pass this on to (three people) and why?"

None. I plan on breaking the chain and causing catastrophic consequences. But if you want to answer any of the questions, feel free to do so in my comment section.

I'll be writing more in the next few days. Just trying to get my bearings.
