How the hell am I supposed to answer this one? Seriously, whoever thought up this meme.

I also don't think I can just choose the best book. Too many factors, too many options. Still, if I was abandoned somewhere with only one book, I think I'd choose To Kill a Mockingbird. I've read that book dozens of times, and every time I find something new to love about it. I never get tired of it.

Runners-up include The Silmarillion, Never Let Me Go, The Way the Crow Flies, Cat's Eye, Guns, Germs and Steel, and The Left Hand of Darkness.

Oh probably. But I enjoy making up ridiculous scenarios.

Although I'm mainly an Aragorn girl...

Right there with ya. ::drool::

Though only in the movie. In the books, I'm all about Faramir. I've had a crush on that character since I was, oh, 11.

My theory is they're just screwing with people. There's no romance of any kind in The Hobbit and god knows we can't have a movie without romance, so they've decided to pretend there's some romance in this movie by using the trailer to fake out people who aren't familiar with the story. The uninitiated be like OMG GANDALF 'N' GALADRIEL! and then the movie will be like NUH UH FOOLED YA and all of us long-time Tolkien fans will be like OH THANK GOD AND ALSO AHAHAHHA.

At least he's drawing to the right place, as opposed to drawing to the chin or somewhere several inches from the face like just about every other movie that involves archery.

When I was picture-book age, I loved The Lorax (actually, I still love that book). Apparently I had the entire thing memorized when I was four, years before I could read it.

When I was a bit older, my favorite book was The Giver, which I read when I was eight, and still think is brilliant. I also loved Little House in the Big Woods, The Hobbit, A Wrinkle in Time and Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH.

I'm not happy. It just hasn't been long enough since the show went off the air. It got seven seasons of (mostly) awesome. It had a good run. I don't see the need to recast the entire damn thing and make a new movie. I like some of the hypothetical casting there (I don't know who most of those people are so I'm going purely by appearance, but I like the look, and GILES OMG YES), but I just can't imagine Buffy without the show's actors. I'd be on board for a movie set in the Buffyverse but not involving the show's characters, though.

I have upwards of 400 books at last count, not counting cookbooks, plays, and dictionaries of languages I don't speak but enjoy looking at, and I've read every one multiple times (the books, not the dictionaries :-P). And I ran out of shelf space some time ago.

My most treasured book is my first Canadian edition signed copy of Cat's Eye, which I found at a book sale, priced at $3 by someone who clearly didn't recognize it for what it was. Sometimes I take it out of the bookcase and pet it while calling it "Precious". Second place goes to my hardcover illustrated Lord of the Rings.
