Last week, a Facebook meme popped up asking what TV show you want to be trapped in. I don’t watch much television. I’ve never even heard of half of the shows people listed. Obviously, that was one post I didn’t share. (Although, if someone threatened to toss me into the pit of doom unless I picked a show, I guess I’d go with Doctor Who).
It did get me thinking, though. What if I were trapped inside a book? Which book would I want to be trapped inside? Then I decided it had to be a book I currently own, because where’s the fun in naming just any old book?
My top three picks:
Be fun to see if Tom Bombadil and other characters really did sing all the time.
(Please disregard the random scribbling on the model’s face. He’s going through a phase.)
A world with Nac Mac Feegles, how fun would that be?
Okay, actually, I couldn’t decide on the third book. I own some earth-shattering books, but I wouldn’t necessarily want to be trapped in all of them. When I asked my husband his picks, mine was at the top of the list (of course it was!). I thought about it and realized I would love to be trapped inside that book. So it goes on my list, too.
And just for fun, a book I’d hate to be trapped inside:
1) The Handmaid’s Tale, by Margaret Atwood
(although I don’t own it. I borrowed it from the library. I have to give it back in two days)
Great writing, but I don’t want to live in that world.
What about you, which book would you like to be trapped inside?
