Booking Through Thursday

It's been AWHILE since I've participated in Booking Through Thursday. This week's questions are:

Are there any particular worlds in books where you’d like to live?

Or where you certainly would NOT want to live?

What about authors? If you were a character, who would you trust to write your life?

I would like to live on Prince Edward Island. You might say that doesn't count as another "world" but I do. It's a magical world, full of imagination and beauty. I visited it a few years back with a very, very good friend of mine. I made her take my picture as I got out of the car for the first time and set my actual foot on the actual soil. She was laughing at me. I was crying tears of joy. Pathetic MAYBE but I when I saw I really like Anne of Green Gables and her creator, I'm not kidding.

I don't know the answer to question number 2, so I'll skip it.

As for number three, that's an "important" question. My first thought was George Sayer. He wrote a biography on C.S. Lewis that I thought was superbly well-done. I think he would do a good job. Secondly, I might like Nancy Moser to write it. Then she can weave together all the facts with doses of fiction making me sound incredibly important, well-thought-out, etc., etc. You know - make me sound like someone you would absolutely want to know! Heh.

Ok, well, we all have dreams.

Those are mine! What are yours? Did you play?

Can you imagine living in a world created by Tolkien? That would be something!

oh, I so agree that writers can make life sound so much richer. Sometimes I think that if I wrote out my day in the morning, it would sound so interesting. And I think if a writer got hold of my cooking, it would sound so much tastier, too.

PEI- yes living where Anne of Green Gables did would be nice.

Great answers!

I agree about Nancy Moser weaving fact and fiction. I would want to be interesting.

I sometimes think it would be cool to live in the "world" of Jane Austen. At least if I went I'd want to be of the upper class. It wouldn't be too bad and those dresses seem like so much fun.

I think I would trust Charles Dickens to write me. He recognizes everyone is human. Though I don't know if I'd want to read what he wrote!

I could so do Prince Edward Island.

I think PEI would be a bit too cold for me in the winter. Now Tolkien's world would be cool! I've never really thought about this! I'm reading Just Jane right now, so I think having Moser write my story would be neat! :D

I had the same answer about PEI! I do think it counts, for sure. I really hope to get there some day, just for a visit, while living in my own world. :)

Living in Anne's world would be great - but not in the winter. I find PEI winters so bone-aching cold (although I live in Nova Scotia which isn't much better) lol :)

Oh yes, Anne's world would be fun to live in. Great post.

Prince Edward Island definitely counts. I haven't read any of Montgomery's books' but just the idea of PEI sounds wonderful.
