Another Book Meme

I saw this on Pharyngula and thought it was more fun than the Proust Questionnaire, so here goes:

You're stuck inside Fahrenheit 451, which book do you want to be? (N.B.: this refers to what book you would memorize, as do the characters at the end of Bradbury's novel)

The collected poetry of Emily Dickinson

Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character?

Yes. Richard III, from Sharon Kay Penman's The Sunne in Splendour (and, incidentally, on the Ian McKellen version of the character). And on Tyrion Lannister from A Song of Ice and Fire. Is this unhealthy?

The last book you bought is:

Federal Jurisdiction

The last book you read:

A Changed Man

What are you currently reading?

The Persian Letters, Anabasis, Textual Poachers, and Federal Jurisdiction.

Five books you would take to a deserted island:

In Search of Lost Time, Godel, Escher, Bach, The Complete Works of Shakespeare, Gone With the Wind, and the U.S. Army Survival Manual.

Who are you going to pass this stick to (3 persons)? And Why?

Will Baude (because I can use his list as fodder for future library expeditions), Heidi (because she's guaranteed to surprise), and my pal Dana (for catching up purposes).
