I'm a man with a mission in two or three editions.

I've seen this meme at a few other places and I thought I'd give it a go. Isn't boredom an amzing thing ?
You're stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be?
No idea what this one is on about. So I’ll pick one to memorise and one to burn:
I would memorise Grapes of wrath for two reasons; firstly it’s an amazing story and one that left me an exhausted emotional wreck. Secondly, such a good story should be shared; I would love to tell someone in a jackanory style. I’m sure they would be in the palm of your hand.
I would burn anything that progressed the notion of organised religion or bigotry of any kind.
Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?
I seem to remember being quite enamored of Susan in The lion the witch and the wardrobe. She is given a horn to blow if she is ever in danger. I’m sure she gave it to me.
The last book you bought is:
Into the wild – Jon Krakauer. Bought whilst on holiday in Prague. It’s available on eBay and I would recommend it to anyone.
The last book you read:
The restaurant at the end of the universe – Douglas Adams.
What are you currently reading?
Nuclear power – Open University science matters – S280
Five books you would take to a deserted island:
Perdido street station – China Meiville.
To kill a mocking bird – Harper lee.
Riotous assembly – Tom Sharpe.
Birthday letters – Ted Hughes.
The wrong boy – Willy Russell.
Who are you going to pass this stick to (3 persons) and why?
Anyone who is bored enough to have a go.
