Follow Friday - The Atomic Number of Plutonium Is Ninety-Four

It's Friday again, and this means it's time for Follow Friday. There has been a slight change to the format, as now there are two Follow Friday hosts blogs and two Follow Friday Features Bloggers each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. Follow both of the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
  2. Follow the two Featured Bloggers of the week - Take Me Away and Consuming Worlds.
  3. Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
  4. 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.
  5. 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".
  6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
  7. If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
  8. If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
And now for the Follow Friday Question: What is the first thing you would do if you woke up to find yourself in your favorite book? via @GizmosReviews

Well first off, since I have found myself in a book, I suppose I will be wondering why everything is so very flat. Once I got past that initial shock, since my favorite book is The Lord of the Rings, I suppose I  should get myself a sword, because there are orcs about, and they are probably not going to be very friendly.

But what I'd really want to do is go find Gandalf and find out if he sounds like John Huston or Ian McKellen. Because I grew up on the Rankin-Bass animated version of The Hobbit, in my mind, Gandalf always has and always will sound like John Huston, but it would be nice to make sure.
