Feature & Follow Friday

Question of the Week: Tell us about a book character you’d trade places with.

That's a hard question, and I'm not sure I would do that. If you're familiar with the book and the character, you know everything that will happen, so what kind of a life is that? 

On the other hand, if I trade places with the character, maybe I can change the outcome of whatever happened to him or her.  

So let's think about this. I can trade with Scarlett O'Hara, and keep Rhett Butler's love and quit pining for Ashley Wilkes. I wouldn't mind trading places with Desiree, though, and then I'd be loved by Napoleon (even if he does jilt me) and then get to marry a Marshall of France and later become Queen of Sweden. That sounds really cool. But then, speaking of Napoleon, if I changed places with Betsy Balcombe, from The Last Love, and be a friend to him.

So many choices. I think I'll go with Cardinal Richelieu, of the Three Musketeers and have fun fighting the musketeers and ruling the country of France.


  1. It is so difficult to choose a character. There are just so many warring for attention. :)

  2. Brave you are, I don't know if I could handle trading places with her. That is a great pick though! Happy Friday.

  3. Ooh - good choice. And I do like the idea of trading places but having knowledge of what's going on so you can make the right choices quicker than they tend to.

  4. I haven't read any of those books, so I'm really unfamiliar with those characters. But it sounds pretty interesting.

  8. I've always wondered what I would do in their places. Would I have loved that person? Would I have chosen that path?
