Friday---Dec. 23

Alison Can Read

Follow Friday Question of the Week: If you had to spend eternity inside the pages of a book which book would you choose and why?

Hm.m.m.m--- It is a toss up between Pride and Prejudice- living my days at Pemberley; Persuasion- living with faithful Captain Frederick Wentworth; or Emma- splitting my time between two estates with kind George Knightly. I thought about Jane Eyre but decided that Mr. Rochester is just a bit too brooding for me. And, of course, it would be a hoot to live on the spaceship in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and have hilarious adventures ever after. Hogwarts and Narnia would both be wonderful to visit.  Ah, so many choices.

Congratulations to the featured blogger this week:   From the Shadows I Review

TGIF from Greads question of the week: Dear Santa: Which books made it to your Christmas wish list this year?

I only asked Santa for one book this year (but it was a last minute request so I doubt he had time):  Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James. Now that I read this intro to the book, I want it even more.


  1. I'd love to live in Pemberley. Or any Austen novel for that matter. I just love her.

  2. Aah, another period classic lover! I adore Pride and Prejudice!

  4. I would definitely like to live in the Narnian world! Only if I could hang out with Aslan and Mr. Tumnus :) And maybe marry Prince Caspian HA!

    My Follow Friday!

  5. You're right! Being on that spaceship would be so much fun.

  6. I like your choices! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  7. Great choice! I don't know if I'd be able to spend eternity in those times though lol

  8. I'd choose Narnia or Hogwarts as well. Although I might consider Alagaesia...

  9. Pride and Prejudice, if I can have Mr. Darcy! Great choice! Thanks for stopping by! Reading to Penguins

  10. I love when that happens. When a book hooks you right off and suddenly you want all the books in the series. =D

  11. My choice was Pride and Prejudice also,
    happy holidays!


  12. I haven't heard of Death comes to Permberly before, but I hope it makes it under your tree.

  13. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
    I picked Persuasion and Captain Wentworth, but P&P and Mr. Darcy is a great 2nd choice. I'd take Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester too.
