Living in a Book World #IWSG


I’m currently in quiet, inspiration percolating mode at the moment, so today's post will be a short, fun one: 

The IWSG question of the month: If you could live in any book world, which would it be? 

I’d probably choose, Lord of the Rings. It’s a world with dragons, and while that might be bad for real estate if a dragon lived in your area…dragons!!! 

Big parties in the Shire where everyone knows everyone without social media. 

It’s where adventures happen, 

Where the good guys always win, 

Where treasures can be found, 

Where magic exists, 

And…dragons! 

How about you? Which book world would you choose? What have you been up to lately?

The Shire would be a happy place that's lots of fun.

Dragons are always good. I might've selected Pern for that reason but went with Narnia instead.

Jemi Fraser said...

I'd join you in the Shire or Gondor - after Sauron's defeat though! I'm not very brave!!

Janet Alcorn said...

I can't believe I didn't even think of the Shire. Yes! It's beautiful, everyone knows everyone, Second Breakfast, Elevensies... sign me up!

H.R. Sinclair said...

The Shire, yes. I didn't even think of that but it's perfect.

James Pailly said...

Oh yeah, the Shire would be a good place to live. I'd spend pretty much all my time poring over old books, like Bilbo. That would be a good life.

Lee Lowery said...

I'm with you on the dragons! And no social media. I chose Pern for those same reasons.

Carol Kilgore said...

I can't choose just one, LOL. Yours sounds great!

Fundy Blue said...

I couldn't choose just one, but LOTR made my list. I'm such a hobbit. Enjoy your current mode, Lynda!

No wraiths allowed :P

Lynda R Young as Elle Cardy said...

oh yes, for sure!

Lynda R Young as Elle Cardy said...

Those second breakfasts would win on their own!

Lynda R Young as Elle Cardy said...

Peaceful and perfect

Living the dream

Lynda R Young as Elle Cardy said...

Pern is also a top choice..except for the danger of the thread...but that's what the dragons are for!

Lynda R Young as Elle Cardy said...

The beauty of reading is we don't need to choose just one ;)

Lynda R Young as Elle Cardy said...

Thanks. It's a chill mode with lots of plans and ideas to make some dreams come true.

Middle Earth is a great choice. I like dragons too.
For the IWSG July prompt asking which book world I would live in, I narrowed it down to three choices.
One is a short-story I published. One is from a popular series. And one is better known from television, but there are books. It's all on my blog.

So many great worlds have been mentioned. The Shire sounds wonderful.

Damyanti Biswas said...

The world of hobbits has intrigued me quite a bit, but I'm weary of the dangers that lurk in the dark.

Olga Godim said...

You're the second one to choose a world with dragons. You must be very brave. I would quake under my beds if there were dragons around, but I admire the brave ones.

Patricia said...

I'd be up for living in the Shire as well.

Nick Wilford said...

I would be very happy with a quiet life drinking tea in Hobbiton.

Great blog

Toi Thomas said...

Love your choice. I too wouldn't mind living in a world with dragons. Still, I like to live far away from them and go visit them from time to time. Like going on safari.
