Books I have loved

There is a book meme doing the rounds, as usual.

In Farenheit 451, volunteers memorise entire books, to preserve the text from burning: what text would you learn and save?

The Dao De Jing / aka Tao Te Ching

Have you ever had a crush on a character in a book?

That tutor in 'Shirley' by Charlotte Bronte. Can't even remember his name now.

Bud White in LA Confidential. Hell, Ed Exley too.

Someone like Hamlet or Robinson Crusoe - well, you wouldn't kick them out of bed would you? But I wouldn't call them crushes.

The last book you bought is:

rozk's book about SF films -' From Alien to The Matrix' - not arrived from Amazon yet

The last book you finished is:

What lie did I tell? By William Goldman.

What are you currently reading:

The latest (#17) Gardner Dozois anthology of SF

Five desert island books:

Always so difficult. I' m going to arbitrarily forbid myself 'complete works of...' and exclude the Dao which I've already said I would memorise.

So... The Marriage of Heaven and Hell,
Pride and Prejudice,
Always Coming Home,
The White Goddess
