The meme moves on

You are stuck inside Fahrenheit 451. Which book title would you be?

The Oxford English Dictionary. You'll notice a small change in the question. We are assuming the possession of superhuman powers, of course.

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?

No. Well, depends on what you mean by fictional.

What is the last book you bought?

Collapse, by Jared Diamond.

What are you currently reading?

Star in the East--Krishnamurti: the invention of a messiah, by Roland Vernon

Five books for a desert island?

As I said to Idyllopus in answer to a similar question, any 5 Dickens novels, because I can reread them with pleasure, important on a desert island.

Or, alternatively, I'm kind of fickle, and decide what to take on trips at the last minute, Chapman's Homer (both books), Gavin Douglas's Aeneid, Don Quixote in Spanish and the Diccionario de la Real Academia EspaƱola.

Who are you going to pass this book meme baton to and why? (only three people)

I doubt if there are any bloggers left who have not gotten this chain letter. So it will be 3 friends I have not heard from in a long time, one who lives on Bainbridge Island, one who lives in Upper Nyack, and one who lives in Vermont, to see what they are up to.
