The Adventure Book Tag

I am not sure if aliens threw up or if some yarn was having a mutant baby, but that picture is what we get for this tag. I’m guessing trying to figure it out is the Adventure?

Which character would you love to go on an adventure with?

Asterix and Obelix. What could be more fun than a couple of fun loving Gauls who happen to be nigh invincible?

If you could be any character for the day, who would you be and why?

Corran Horn, a most honorable Jedi. He was the main character in the novel I, Jedi and played a large role in the New Jedi Order series. Flying an X-Wing starfighter sounds like an adventure to me. Doing it while swinging a lightsaber just sounds awesome.

What book  is on your TBR bucket list? 

No One Like Him by John Feinberg. I started this back in ’18 and realized by the end of the introduction that I simply wasn’t ready for this. Feinberg’s thesis on the nature of God is not lightly undertaken.

Which book has a contemporary setting you would love to go to?

Kingfisher by Patricia McKillip. A world in which knights ride motorcycles and beam weapons are wielded against dragons? Yes please!

Which book has a fantasy/fictional setting you would love to go to? 

Talion: Revenant was the quintessential fantasy book for me growing up. Nothing like a medieval setting to make the dreams flow!

What book or book edition would you do anything to get your hands on? 

The Original 10 Commandments. Talk about a collectors item!

Name a character who is very adventurous and daring. 

Percy Jackson from the Lightning Thief. This boy knows how to find trouble without even trying.

Name the craziest or weirdest place you’ve ever read a book.

You know, I really don’t do crazy or weird. In fact, I don’t do “Adventures”. It’s a running joke between Mrs B and I now how much I hate new things because they always turn into “adventures”. I prefer my adventures to stay inside the books where it’s nice and safe. For me.

Cheers!

    1. Glad it was enjoyable 😀
      As much as I may joke about it however, I really don’t do traveling or adventures. What you described in your latest photo post about getting lost and spending 2 1/2hrs is my worst nightmare.

      Each to their own I guess 😀

      I am finding that if I approach these “Tag” posts with just the right attitude, I can have a lot of fun writing them. If I don’t though, I end up frustrated and angry at how pointless they are.

  1. Hey, how does a book with dragons and beam weapons count as a contemporary setting? Now I’m confused.
    A first edition of the ten commandments sounds like a good conversation piece, but where would it go on my bookshelf?

    1. I took contemporary to mean “modern and like our world”, not strictly our world. Because that would have weeded out about 80% of my options then 😀

      I think you’d have to have special bookcase built for it or get a really heavy duty glossy coffee table.

  2. Mutant yarn baby!

    I believe the original 10 commandments were the ancient world’s equivalent of a legal document. Thus, all ten were written on each tablet: one copy of the “document” for each party. I doubt they have the record for shortest-lasting contract, but it’s got to be close …

    1. With some of the hollywood “marriages” we see today, I suspect the 10 Commandments don’t come close in terms of winning the shortest lasting. But you know, I guess it depends on when you count from. Did God write them at the beginning of the 40days or the end?
