A new meme, I like memes. Well, I got this Literary Meme passed on to me by Sebastian at the wonderful PCL LinkDump. Thanks so much for think of me when you passed on this meme. As you I spend some time thinking about the answers, but now here they are:
You’re stuck inside Fahrenheit 451; which book do you want to be?
I chose a book with the complete works of poetry of Carlos Drummond de Andrade, Poesia completa (Complete Poetry), but is not fair. So I chose the Alguma poesia (Some poetry), his first book.
Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?
Yes, but… well…the female characters are always
better more interesting than the male characters, at least on the books that I read. So let’s shock some people: Molly from Neuromancer by William Gibson.
What are you currently reading?
I’m reading 4 books, but literature books is just one: Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes, in a Portuguese version of course.
The last book you bought is:
I bought 3 at the same time, but again, literary book was just one, the book that I’m reading now.
The last book you read is:
A very funny and curious book by Terry Pratchett, Mort (Aprendiz de Morte here).
Five books you would take to a desert island:
1. Poesia Completa by Carlos Drummond de Andrade.
2. Ficção Completa, poesia e ensaios (Complete fiction, poetry and essays) by Edgar Allan Poe.
3. Fragments d’un discours amoureux (Fragmentos de um discurso amoroso) by Roland Barthes.
4. Rayuela (O jogo da amarelinha) by Julio Cortázar
5. Obra poítica (Poetry works) by Fernando Pessoa.
PS.: I chose not wonderful books, but books that I can read again and again and never get tired.
Who are you going to pass this stick to, and why?
For cool people that love books or I think they love: Emmy (Emmy’s Weblog), Idelber (O Biscoito Fino e a Massa), Mark (Exclamation Mark), Michelle (Life In The Present) and Miriam (scribblingwoman).
Update: I’m not sure if Michelle and Mark will pass on this – I never saw a meme on theirs blogs. And Idelber just post in Portuguese. Well, let’s see what people will do.
Update 2: Oops, Miriam did this meme on March and you can see her answers here.
