OK, I know that pretty much all of you out there are bookworms. So for Fun Monday on 2nd February, firstly tell me what book you are reading now. What's it about? Are you enjoying it and why? If not, why not? And secondly, if you were to be stranded on a desert island, what one book would you take with you.
What I'm reading now:
The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice.
What book I would like to have with me on a deserted island:
The Stand by Stephen King.
Another book that I've read numerous times, but every time I read it, I find something new, think something new... As dark as that book can be at times, it is also a very hopeful book. I also happen to think that it's perfect for the deserted island scenario because much of it is about what drives us to be a society and how people would go about rebuilding one from scratch. What values to you bring along with you? What should be the laws? How does each person function within a new society? Interesting stuff to think about - all wrapped up in a Stephen King novel. Plus, it's really, really long!
Check out what everyone else is reading, or would if they didn't have George Clooney on their deserted island with them - go visit Angela for a list of participants.
