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:
1) Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien
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.)
2) A Hat Full of Sky, by Terry Pratchett (or any Tiffany Aching book)
A world with Nac Mac Feegles, how fun would that be?
3) Ashborne: The First Chronicle, by Cas Blomberg
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?
