It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This week it’s the top ten characters who are fellow book nerds – a great topic as a proud bookworm and a former librarian! All book covers from Goodreads.
Top Ten Fellow Book Nerds
1. Ryter from The Last Book in the Universe by Rodman Philbrick
It takes a certain amount of courage to continue writing in a world where everyone is plugged into a virtual reality.
2. Henry from The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
He’s a librarian! I tend to be fairly picky when it come to romance, but I surprisingly loved this book.
3. Scheherazade from The Arabian Nights
I hope I have enough imagination to come up with one thousand and one stories.
4. Clay from Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
I wish I could work for this bookstore!
5. Alberto from The Infinite Library by Kane X. Faucher
Hired to work for the eponymous infinite library. Kind of reminds me of a more serious and philosophical version of Mr. Penumbra.
6. Granger from Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Imagine memorizing entire books to carry on the legacy of literature in a world where books are banned!
7. Jack from The Shining by Stephen King
If you’re a writer, don’t a become caretaker for strange hotels. It won’t end well.
8. Esther from The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
A semi-autobiographical writer from one of my favorite books.
9. Virginia Woolf from The Hours by Michael Cunningham
I haven’t yet had a chance to read the book, but I thought the movie adaptation was superb.
10. Mikael from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
A journalist. I’m still working my way through the book, but I loved the Swedish miniseries.
