island life

This is one of those things where as soon as you've written it, you change your mind. Oh, well. Here's today's version, anyway.
You're stuck inside Fahrenheit 451. Which book do you want to be saved?
An e-book that contains everything else. (Whaddya mean, that's cheating?)
Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?
Hmph. Do I look like the kind of girl who fantasises over imaginary characters? Oh, alright. Too many to list. (We can compare notes over that drink, Zoe.)
The last book you bought was...?
"Zen Buddhism", by Christmas Humphreys, 2nd-hand at markets. (Geez, imagine having "Christmas" as your first name.)
The last book you read was...?
"First Aid For Children". Fascinating, just how much damage they can self-inflict.
What are you currently reading?
"The Road from Coorain", Jill Kerr Conway (still...gawd)
Five books you would take to a desert island...
"The Outsider" - Albert Camus
"A Spy in the House of Love" - Anais Nin
"Breakfast at Tiffanys" - Truman Capote
"What We Talk About When We Talk About Love" - Raymond Carver
"The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" - Douglas Adams (btw, anyone seen the movie yet? any good?)
Of course, these aren't the best books of all time or anything, just a handful I like that I could easily read over a couple more times. long am I going to be stuck on this island for, by the way? Do I at least get to have a playmate?
Who are you passing this stick on to and why?
Chris, not lately of backpages and Jozef, always of media dragon. Sorry, boys--blame Zoe. Now, where's my daiquiri?

Jozef's posts are often thrust down his main page prematurely due to the sheer volume of his blogging, so here's the link to Jozef's list.
