Book Blogger Hop May 20 to 23

Time for another Book Blogger Hop from Crazy for Books.

Book Blogger Hop

Today's question:

"If you were given the chance to spend one day in a fictional world (from a book), which book would it be from and what would that place be?"

You know, that's a real poser. Could you bring working artifacts back? If so, I'd have to head for someplaced highly technical. Go to the world of Gibson's Neuromancer and get some memory implants, or head to Tertius from Heinlein's Time Enough for Love and get rejuvenation treatments, or Gould's Jumper or Anderson's The Man Who Folded Himself to pick up a time travel belt.

If not, then I'd probably slide to the fantasy side and spend a day in Lothlorien or Rivendell from Tolkien, Shangri La from Lost Horizon by Hilton, or The Emerald City from Baum's Oz books. Just for sheer relaxation.

I’ve seen a lot of great picks and gathered some fresh titles to add to my ever-growing TBR list. My answer will probably stun most people because the world I picked is a place most people would be scared to death of and try to escape from. Me? I want in.

Hop on over to my blog and be prepared for the unexpected – http://www.howardsherman.net
