Book Blogger Hop April 5th - April 11th: The HTTP Response Status Code "301 Moved Permanently" Is Used for Permanent URL Redirection

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: If you could take the place of any fictional character, who would it be and why?

The problem with switching places with a fictional character is that most fictional characters lead lives that are best described as "interesting", and by interesting, I mean dangerous and often quite crappy. There are a lot of characters that are enjoyable to read about, but wouldn't be enjoyable to be.

With those considerations in mind, I think that the fictional character that I would want to take the place of would be Tom Bombadil from The Lord of the Rings. Overall, Bombadil seems to have a pretty good life. He has virtually unlimited power, a fairly nice house, and a beautiful spouse. The only real problem he has seems to be that his stomping grounds are fairly limited in area, although that may be a self-imposed limitation.

So Tom Bombadil it is. That's who I would take the place of.

  1. Good thinking! As you say, the problem with being a character in most novels would be that life would be too interesting, or it wouldn’t be much of a novel, but Tom Bombadil lives a nicely boring life.
