Follow Friday - Roman Emperor Numerian Died in 284 A.D.; This Was Not a Good Era to Be a Roman Emperor

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 a single Follow Friday Featured Blogger 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 Featured Blogger of the week - Turning The Pages.
  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 protagonist is most like you?

I don't know if I actually reach the standard set by the character, but the protagonist that I always hope to be most like is Atticus Finch from Harper Lee's masterpiece To Kill a Mockingbird. I am not certain that anyone could actually rise to that level, but at least it is something to aspire to, which is one of the things that great stories often do: Give us something to aspire to.

  1. I like this answer! It's nice to have a character you WANT to be more like, even if there isn't one you feel you already relate too that much.


    1. @Shooting Stars Mag: I have always thought that one should pick one's heroes based upon who they inspire us to become.

  2. Oooh! Atticus sounds like an awesome character!

    Here’s my FF!

    1. @Ronyell: Atticus is a great character, both in the original book by Harper Lee, and in the movie adaptation where he was played by Gregory Peck. The film version of the character was voted the greatest hero in American cinema by the American Film Institute in 2003.
