What is with this skippy game of "it"?
I have been tagged by new kid blogger extraordinaire Shell's Bells Horton.
You’re stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be?
What kinda question is this? Gi. Fa.
Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?
Wha'? Oh. Okaay. Santino "Sonny" Corleone in Mario Puzo's "The Godfather". Typical, right?
The last book you bought is:
Dan Brown's Angels & Demons or whatever. A rollicking good read up until the gratuitous slag of the superpriest. Coulda ended with the priest being the good guy. But noooo. Ol' Dan just had to slag off the best church of all. Still, fantastic descriptions of Castel Sant'Angelo, one of my favorite spots in Rome, which is filled with top spots.
O, while I am reminded, Happy Easter to all.
The last book you read:
Like cover to cover? The last one I bought, of course. What IS this?
What are you currently reading?
A book about Engerland. None of your business why.
Five books you would take to a deserted island.
Enciclopedia Italiana, for the truth about the world.
Encyclopaedia Brittanica the pages of which are very fine and gentle.
The collected Newgate Prison Calendar - big books of footpads, sneakthieves, brigands, bounders, cads, higwaymen, confidence tricksters, bodysnatchers, vouchsafers, filchers, welchers, bandits, idlers, purloiners, Greeks, rustlers, pirates and usurers. You know the types. Entertaining at a distance.
Italo Calvino's Book of Italian Fairy Tales cos on a island you will prolly need some dreams to keep you sane.
Collected Works of Edgar Allan Poe cos on an island you will prolly need some nightmares to stop you walking into the woods at night where the talking ravens are.
Giovanni Boccaccio's Decameron cos I have not got around to it yet and my Pa always reckoned it was tops.
Who are you going to pass this stick to (3 persons) and why?
Jihadpundit for wogness.
Chrenkoff for wogness, what are you blind?
Drooble. Cos he's gay, alright. We cannot all be wogs.
