I began the morning writing my daily post about my journey to becoming a career novelist over on Fact and Fiction. Now I think I’ll answer the book-related meme that I found on Notes in the Key of Life.
You’re stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be? I’m not sure I understand the question. Does it mean, if I was a book that needed to be hidden so it wouldn’t be burned, what would I be? If that’s what the question means, then I would have to be the Bible. God help the world if His word was lost to it.
Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? Michael Hosea in Francine Rivers’ Redeeming Love. Oh, to be so unconditionally loved like that.
The last book you bought is: Mocha with Max by Max Lucado.
The last book you read: Not counting the books I judged for a contest (since those were assigned rather than what I would have picked up on my own), the last book I completed was Come Thirsty by Max Lucado. The last novel I finished was Whence Came a Prince by Liz Curtis Higgs.
Five books you would take to a deserted island: The Bible; Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers; Heaven by Randy Alcorn; Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell; and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin. (If I sat and thought about this, I would probably change those last three several times because I have many more favorites than five books – both fiction and non-fiction – that have impacted me deeply; the first two would not change, however.)
Who are you going to pass this stick to (3 persons) and why? I’ll mimic Cindy at Notes in the Key of Life and simply post here to my blog. Readers can answer it in the comment section and/or on their own blogs if they choose.
Have a great Friday!
