Question: If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be and what part would you play in that book?

Answer: I think this is a great question because that's what I like to do when I read most books;   immerse myself and become part of that world.  I have so many answers for this, but I'll limit myself for this post.

The Stand by Stephen King: I would like to be one of the survivors of course and I would definitely be on the good guy's side (no matter how much I love scary, horror books).  I don't know if I'd be brave enough to go up against Randall Flagg, but I would definitely do my part to make sure our Colorado town prevailed.

Swan Song by Robert McCammon:  Yep, another apocalyptic story.  There is something about these "dystopian-society failed-let's start over" stories that bring out what characters are really made of.  Everything that people worry about, like jobs and material things fall to the wayside in lieu of survival.  Yet relationships are more important because there are less people and you have to make it work or you won't make it at all.  Again, this is a story about good vs. evil and I would be fighting alongside the good guys.

Any Charles De Lint book: These are books filled with magic and possibilities.  The Faery Realm and Otherworld are close by in his stories and a brush with them changes people's lives.

Any Ray Bradbury story about Halloween: Need I say more?

This week's question: What's the longest book you've ever read?
Answer: Again, The Stand by Stephen King, more specifically the Complete and Uncut version.  I had read The Stand and loved it, didn't want it to end, re-read it. When I saw this edition, I had to have it.  More story! More characters!  More immersing myself in this world.

It would be pretty cool to be in The Stand. I chose Swan Song, too, but for my longest book. :) Hmm... I may need to look up how many pages are in The Stand now! I used my bookshelves to answer my question, but I don't have a copy of The Stand in here.
