The Stick

Kathy Fish and Carol Peters passed the stick to me…

1. You’re stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, what book would you like to be?

--Oh this is impossible! How can I choose one? Okay: “Love in the Time Of Cholera.”

2. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character—No.

3. The last book you read


4. What are you currently reading?

--“As Cool As I Am,” by Pete Fromm

5. Five books you would take to a deserted island:

--Pablo Neruda poems
--Ulysses—I’d finally have the time to try to figure it out.
--Annotations for Ulysses
--Collected Works of Richard Bausch
--Collected Works of Judy Budnitz—okay, so there isn’t such a book yet…but there will be.

6. Who are you going to pass the stick to (3 persons) and why?
--Jai Clare
--Katie Weekley
--Laila Lalami

Because they’re all brilliant.

Oooh, I love, Love in the Time of Cholera--Marquez is amazing.

Your theory on Ulysses was exactly my thinking on Finnegans Wake, but I should have said I'd also cheat and bring the Skeleton Key because without it I'd be lost. Again.

Are you enjoying As Cool As I Am?? I have it on my bedside table, waiting for me, but have one other book ahead of it. Is it good? I went to a one-day workshop with Pete Fromm recently ~ he was really nice and down-to-earth and had the most interesting mustache. :)

Yes, overall I liked it. The female teen character was different and interesting. At times it felt ever-so-slightly over the top--but I didn't mind.
