Book Meme

Rob from Lawyers Guns Money has challenged me to answer these book questions that are moving through the blogosphere. So here we go.

If you were stuck inside Farenheit 451, which book do you want to be?
Crime and Punishment

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?
You know, it seems like I did once many years ago but I can't even come close to placing it. But not really. The women Philip Roth writes about in The Dying Animal and many other books seem very sexy, but most of them aren't even really well-developed characters.

The last book you bought is?
Just bought 2 books today.
Gail Dubrow and Donna Brooks, Sento at Sixth and Main: Preserving Landmarks of Japanese American Heritage
Michael Bess, The Light-Green Society: Ecology and Technological Modernity in France, 1960-2000

What are you currently reading?
Chris Bolgiano, Living in the Appalachian Forest: True Tales of Sustainable Forestry

Five books you would take to a deserted island?
Fyodor Dostoevsky, Crime and Punishment
Jose Saramago, Baltasar and Blimunda
Gao Xingjian, Soul Mountain
The Bible (not for religious purposes)
Philip Roth, Sabbath's Theater

Who are you going to pass this stick to (3 persons) and why?
The three women from M-pyre, Maggie, Marjorie, and Mikaela. Mostly because I think the responses will be quite interesting.
