It's Friday again, which means it's time for Follow Friday. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
- Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Host (Parajunkee) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
- Follow the Featured Blogger of the week - Nicki J. Markus.
- Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
- Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
- Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "Hi".
- If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
- If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
- If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
These questions are always hard for me to answer, because so many of my favorite characters are also characters that I would never want to be. I love Paul Atredies from the Dune series, but knowing how his story turns out, I'd never want to be him. I like Hari Seldon from the Foundation books, but I'd never want his life. Severian from the Book of the New Sun is a character I enjoyed reading about immensely, but once again, not someone whose life I would care to have. I think that most of the characters that I like feature in my favorite books have crappy, difficult lives, and often they end up dying in sad ways.
Even though her story is somewhat less than happy, I think I'd go with Leisha Camden from Beggars in Spain as the character I'd like to be. She is one of the Sleepless, a human genetically engineered to never need to sleep. I am always running on a sleep deficit because I'm trying to keep up with all the projects I want to get done. Having those extra hours in the day, and never feeling too tired to use them effectively would be perfect. Add in the fact that the genetic modification seems to make the subject smarter and possibly better athletically, and you have a combination that I would love to have.
