Book Blogger Hop December 26th - January 1st: It Takes 84 Years for Uranus to Orbit the Sun Once

Book Blogger Hop

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.

This week Billy asks: Do you have a book with a location that you just HAD to visit after reading the book?

Since most of the books I read are science fiction or fantasy, the answer is pretty much no. There is no way I could feasibly visit them Moon, or Mars, or Jupiter, and no way at all I could visit Asimov's Foundation, Doyle's Lost World, or Burrough's Barsoom. As much as I would like to go see Lorién, or Rohan, or Prydain, those places don't actually exist, so one can't actually visit them. I suppose that one could visit Wales, since Prydain is loosely based upon that country, and I certainly would like to do so, but I haven't yet. So, no, I haven't actually visited a place because I read about it in a book. Mostly because I seem not to be reading the right kind of books for that.

  1. It would be difficult to visit any of those places. :)

    I visited a place that is on this planet. I just "had" to. :)

    ENJOY your reading week. Nice to see you on the Blog Hop.

    Happy Hopping!!

    1. @Elizabeth: I'm going to try to go to Wales one of these days. Probably Cornwall too, since that's where the Dark Is Rising series is set. Wales has more castles per square mile than anywhere else in the world, which seems to me to be a pretty good reason to go.
