If you could bookjump, which book(s) would you like to visit?
Well, I'm sure a trip into Fly by Night would be interesting so long as I wouldn't be found by the wrong people. See, I would bring books with me...I'll say no more than that.
Ah-ha! Of course I'd pick this one, foggi: I could never miss an opportunity to jump into Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. (Touchstone still horrible it.)
By the way foggi, are you on more than one wait list? (I'm wondering for one of Jasper Fforde perhaps.)
As far as which books I could jump into, any of the Harry Potter series, though Prisoner of Azkaban is my first choice. Beauty by Robin McKinley has long been a favorite of mine, and I would love to go there, both to the cottage and to the castle. I'd also have a fantastic time in A Midsummer Night's Dream, I think, if I could manage to stay out of the way of the narrative. Maybe I could hide behind a bush and watch . . .
I'm sure there are more, so I'll be back later!
Would it work with nonfiction? I'd love to jump into Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand or My first summer in the sierra by John Muir.
That's about all the places to play tourist I can think of for fiction, since I read so little of it. As for non-fiction, I wouldn't mind spending a little time in Failure is Impossible (Susan B. Anthony really isn't as sour as photos of her make her seem). If nothing else, I could put a little elbow grease into the suffrage movement!
A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy would be fun too. Zipping around the universe and all.
Apparently there are a lot of books whose endings I'd change.
British television had a wonderful series called "Lost in Austen". Darcy went in the pond again.
