Most of the thread discussions at Gaia Online are inane and I am hard pressed to discover good topics to engage. Like most threads there you have to wade through a lot of undesirables in the Books subforum too. However, I came across an interesting question posted during my browsing this afternoon.
If you were a tree, what book would you want to become?
I would even settle for The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit. Mostly my heart is set on The Silmarillion though! It’s one of those books that I could go into overdrive fangirl mode about for hours! It’s funny how I never expected to adore this book as much as I do. It was kind of something I felt like I should read to have a deeper understanding of Middle-earth. But isn’t it true that one falls head over heels in love when you least expect it?
And what book would crush your soul if you became?
It would be a grievous blow to be processed for poorly written or overrated books all around, but especially The-Series-That-Must-Not-Be-Named. Nosferatu do not sparkle.
So what about you, dear readers? What would your choices be to end your existence as trees in the name of books?
