Crazy-for-Books. Each weeks bloggers unite to tackle the same question with a multitude of inspired and interesting answers.
Question: If you were given the chance to spend a day in a fictional world, which book would it be and what place would that be?
My Answer: While J.K. Rowling's magical world came to mind my final answer would have to be the worlds created by Diana Wynne Jones in her Crestomanci series. Her world relies on the idea that at every major event there are at least two possible outcomes, and rather that it simply being one or the other, the world splinters and creates two side along worlds where both outcomes are a possibility. So there are worlds similar to ours where the scientific path was chosen while a similar world exists where magic rules. No one knows how many worlds exist, but the guess is they're somewhere into the hundreds and each world is unique and amazing. There are water worlds with mermaids, worlds with dragons soaring across their skies and hundreds of unique languages, religious systems and magical powers. If I had a day I'd run from world to world experiencing as many amazing magical places as possible, accruing as many magical memories as I possibly could!
