Ok, to answer my own questions I asked for the giveaway:

1) If you could be a character in any book (including children's books) you’ve ever read, who would you be and why? 
I love love love books, so it's terribly hard to narrow down to just one character I'd want to be. But at this moment, right now, I would be Hazel from Watership Down. He's loyal, and considers the whole group when making decisions. He allows each rabbit their strength and the space to use that strength. He's the type of leader I'd want to be if I had leadership qualities. Such a great story.

2) If you could transport yourself anywhere instantly, where would you go and why?
To change things: I'd go back to the Tuesday where Lyra's heartbeat was slower than her normal average and go in to the hospital to have everything checked out again.
To escape things: Italy or Spain.


  1. I'd be Haroun. I'd go to Prague.

    Haroun because his story gave me a lift during a time of crisis and Prague because I have no idea when or how I'd ever get another opportunity to go to Prague.

  2. id be pooh bear, blissfully innocent and pure of heart. always wants to help a friend in need.

    i want to live in the in the 100 acre wood, complete with storybook drawings.

    hmmm, well besides the obvious baby-saving places (like putting myself on complete bedrest or something equally drastic) i would say hawaii or paris - ive never been to either and would love to go

    great, refreshing question.
    and i just love your daughter's name. its so unique and beautiful.

  3. It took me awhile to think about this one. When I was a girl, I wanted to be Laura in Little House on the Prairie- now that I'm grown up, I am glad I live with indoor plumbing. I can still relate to Ferdinand the Bull, who liked to just sit quietly and smell the flowers, and was comfortable with who he was. Also like Hari's character in "The Blue Sword".

    My getaway has always been running (walking now) out to the north pasture on the hills that are still original sod ground there, for tears, anger, quiet, and solace. MIN
