One of my favorites was when Thursday had to go to a Council of Genres meeting with her trainee Thursday5 and everyone was so excited that there might be a chance that Harry Potter might show up to discuss books becoming videos games. It cracked me up thinking the boy wizard was just as popular in the BookWorld as he is in our Reader World, but he couldn't make an appearance because of copywrite laws.
I also loved how the book starts out talking about the Stupidity Surplus the country was suffering. Everyone was worried because all the politicans were making sensible and just decisions... this brought tears to my eyes laughing.

I liked the part where Thursday goes into the Nothing and there are no words, so the story is told in pictures, like a comic book. Very clever.
I liked the Future Chronoguard members meeting, where people see themselves going out as they come in, and they already know what questions are going to be asked, except for Friday's questions.

Oh, wait, the cheese that had to be chained down - that's just another story waiting to happen! Okay, I suppose I shouldn't have opened the book to find my favorite part since it seems to be not helping !
