Your very own celebrity READ poster

Question of the day: If the American Library Association asked you to be featured on one of their celebrity READ posters, what book would you hold in your photo? Of course, I am assuming that your answer to the invitation is "yes." I always thought that the book I'd hold would be Pat O'Shea's The Hounds of the Morrigan or even better, something out-of-print that would make the masses clamor to have it reissued. Sam Riddleburger says he might try to make a READ poster generator. It's a good idea.

So, what's the book for your celebrity READ poster?

I would be holding my favorite novel in all the world, Mark Helprin's Winter's Tale.

Well, I was holding my own Qwikpick book, of course. And if not that it would have been one of Cece's books, but if I wasn't allowed to plug anyone I knew I might have to go for Holes. Because if someone (kid or adult) tried it, I know they'd like it.

I'd go with THE WEE FREE MEN. Crivens!

I'm so glad you all posted your future celebrity READ books. Do you have any idea how indignant I was when Britney Spears did a READ poster and held up Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone? I'm convinced she didn't read it.

Oooh, I don't know that I could pick one.

If it was an adult book, it would be Lee Smith's Fair and Tender Ladies. If it was a children's book it would be Susan Cooper's The Grey King. But I reserve the right to change my mind if I'm ever asked. :)

Well, since the intent of the poster is to encourage young people to read, I'd probably have to go with The Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy - it's easier to get into than The Lord of the Rings, and it's got that kind of wittiness that really resonates with the early teens.
