Feature and Follow - Wake Up in a Book

This week's Feature and Follow question: What is the first thing you would do if you woke up and found yourself in your favorite book?

Fiction (Adult): Make sure I had my sword close at hand as I would be wandering the dangerous lands of Tolkien's Middle Earth, hoping an elf or dwarf or even a hobbit found me before any marauding uruk-hai.

Fiction (Juvenile): One of my favorite books from my youth was Professor Diggins' Dragons by Felice Holman. If I found myself there in the company of the inimitable Professor and his summer charges, children who, before their magical summer of exploration saw little use in school, I would make sure I had my imagination ready for an extensive workout. For wonder and interest is all around, they are dragons after all!

I was going to add a nonfiction entry (my tastes run toward military history) but there are a lot of good books in different periods all of which would be similar - I would try to get myself to headquarters and make myself useful in the staff.

 Drop me a comment and, please, follow me if you'd like!


  1. Tolkien's Middle Earth is a good choice :) I haven't heard about Professor Diggins' Dragons, but it sounds like a good read.

  2. I would love to wake up in Hobbiton or Rivendell, with no Orcs in sight! I haven't heard of Professor Diggins-but Dragons? Cool! Thanks for stopping by this week-I'll have two lumps of sugar in my tea thank you :) Following you back via GFC.
