TGIF: Literary Vacations

TGIF: Literary Vacations
(Hosted at GReads)

This Friday's Question:
Literary Vacations: If you could take a trip this summer to any place within a
fictional book, where would you go?

I love these features hosted at other blogs.  I'm a fairly fast reader, but a couple posts a week is starting to get tricky.  I don't know how other bloggers do it!  At least these predetermined questions/responses can help.

So where would I like to go on a "literary vacation."  Well, my immediate response was Narnia (after the White Witch had been defeated and summer could return to the land of course).  While I'm not much in to talking animals, having a chat with Mr. and Mrs. Beaver or taking a walk with Aslan would be more than kind of awesome.  I could relax at the castle with the Pevensie royals, drink tea with Mr. Tumnus, or talk to the trees. It has its possibilities.

But then I started to think about it, and I think I would prefer an adventure vacation.  So that led me to Swindon, England to hang out with Thursday Next, heroine of Jasper Fforde's Eyre Affair series.  Undoubtedly we would find ourselves in some sort of peril, but I could hang out with Heathcliff at his anger management club and skip between books with Miss Havisham.  Not realxing, but it would definitely be a vacation to remember.
