I’m a meme girl today
- Have you ever wanted to travel to a place described in a book? Always. Every book I read. But in a way, I do, because I become so lost in books that you could call my name 20 times and I’d never hear you. I always feel like I’m really there, especially when the descriptions are so tangible that you can see where you are, smell the smells, hear the sounds, etc, etc. But yes, there have been times when I literally wanted to GO where the book was set; especially Ireland by Frank Delaney.
- Have you ever ACTUALLY travelled to a place because of the way it was described in a book? No, but if I ever get to Ireland, it will be because of Frank Delaney. And, incidentally, Barcelona, thanks to The Shadow of the Wind.
- And if so, did it live up to the expectations, feelings, emotions you expected from the book? Did you feel like Anne was going to come romping around the corner of Green Gables? Was it as if Jo was upstairs at Orchard House, scribbling on a story? Or was it just a museum, or just a city street? Like Abbey Road without the Beatles? Can’t answer this, obviously, but I’m sure they would measure up.
