I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date...actually, I'm not technically late, just keeping my parents-in-law waiting (hey, their son, my husband, is talking to them!) while I meet a few deadlines.
What, I thought frantically, can I talk about today at Unabashedly Bookish that will not require me to a) think or b) spend much time typing? As some say, "VIOLA." I remembered a lively Twitter discussion from a month or so back in which someone asked which literary character would best represent ourselves...
I'd like to put a twist on this. First, which literary character best represents you? Second, which literary character would you most like to be?
For me, off of the top of my head:
-- Literary Character Who Best Represents Me: Lily Briscoe in Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse.
-- Literary Character I Would Most Like to Be: The Wife of Bath in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. Or Sherlock Holmes!
How about you?
