(Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books.)
This week’s question comes from Mina, who blogs at Mina Burrows:
“If you could physically put yourself into a book or series, which one would it be and why?”
Although I’m really tempted to answer, “The world of Pride and Prejudice,” in reality that would be a terrible idea: I’m too much of a feminist to be able to deal with life in 18th century England.
So after some more thinking, I’ve decided that I would really enjoy spending some time in the world of Thursday Next and the Thursday Next series (by Jasper Fforde).
An alternate universe in which books are real (and you can visit them and their characters), international travel is made possible by shooting yourself through the center of the earth, and there’s an entire police division dedicated to solving literary crimes. Also, puns and allusions are everywhere. Who wouldn’t want to live in that world?
Your turn: In which literary world would you spend time?
