Coturnix invited me to play the Book Meme game...
You're stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be [saved]?
Some real-life memetic mutation nearly took place. Coturnix wrote "...which book do you want to be?" In that case, I think I'd like to be a first edition of The Age of Reason.
But if I had to choose one book to save, I'd choose either Critique of Pure Reason or the Principia Mathematica.
Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?
Yes, many times. Currently, I have a crush on Dixon from Pynchon's Mason and Dixon. I also have a crush on Ami from Edeet Ravel's Ten Thousand Lovers.
The last book you bought is?
The second-to-last is the worst novel I've ever read: Robert Stone's Outerbridge Reach. Like Ayn Rand with boats.
What are you currently reading?
Derek Parfit's Reasons and Persons
Five books you would take to a deserted island?
1. Gravity's Rainbow (in the hopes of finally finishing it)
2. Wittgenstein's Tractatus (ditto)
3. The original The Joy of Cooking
4. Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine
5. 100 Years of Solitude
Who are you going to pass this stick to (3 persons) and why?
Amanda of Pandagon. Because she's an English lit major with attitude.
Digby because he is an intriguing man of mystery.
Norbizness because he's a funny guy.
