Top Ten Tuesday--Books for Deserted Islands + RMQ
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
Okay, when you read a lot of high fantasy (which is my favorite thing to read) it's not fair to say top ten books. Some fantasy series have more than ten books! So, I'm tweaking the topic for this blog and going with Top Ten Series for a Deserted Island!
Because I want to read them but haven't yet:
Because they're just all around awesome:
A little of both:
*Though I must stipulate that I'd want all books written before going to said island. No fair going there and never being able to find out the ending. :D *
(Final book due Jan 2013. Yea! At last--no pun intended!)
What about you? What would your top ten books/series for a deserted island be?
Random Movie Quotes (RMQ)
Don't know what this is? Check the tab at the top of the blog.
Last week's RMQ was:
Guy2: "How long a time."
Guy 1: "0.68 Seconds, Sir."
All my Star-Trekkian guy-blogger friends got this one and were so disappointed when they didn't get it first. I love ya, guys. Thanks so much for your enthusiasm. This Commander Date (Guy 1) talking to Captain Picard (Guy 2) played by Brent Spiner and Patrick Stewart respectively, in the Star Trek: First Contact movie. It was guessed (first) by Jeff Hargett who gets all 5 points. Great job, Jeff! :D
Today's RMQ is:
Guy: "Allo."So, five possible points. One for each character and actor (hint: or voice) and one for the film. Good luck, and Happy Tuesday, Everyone! :D
Girl: "Did you just say...hello?"
Guy: "No, I said 'allo, but that's close enough."
