I was planning on spending a week or so in Colorado hanging out with Megan before meeting Kat, so it's really not that much more effort to fly over a little earlier and hang out with some 20SBers! *is excited but mildly terrified all at the same time*
What was my point again? Oh, right. Books.
Day 14 - Your favourite book by your favourite author
David Copperfield. Sure, it's a bazillion pages long (okay, 879 pages), and the protagonist is kind of clueless (hello, he's friends with Steerforth, who's a manipulative creep!), but the supporting characters are ridiculously memorable - Uriah Heep, Betsey Trotwood or Mr Micawber, anyone? The idea of a child that young being sent out to work (at a paste factory, no less!) is completely foreign to us now, but what's worse is that it's semi-autobiographical. Wowsers. it being Dickens, we know that all the evil types will get their comeuppances, while the hero will end up wildly successful and happy. Oh, also? A bunch of the characters become wildly successful in Australia. Hells yeah they did!
Plus, the BBC adaptation from 1999 is AWESOME. How can you go wrong with a Dickens adaptation that features Harry Potter, Professor McGonagall, Madame Hooch, Dolores Umbridge, Gandalf and the Vicar of Dibley? EXACTLY.
