If you could have dinner with your favorite book character, who would you eat with and what would you serve?
Okay, first of all, I am really bad at picking favorites. When people ask me to pick my favorite book, I usually give them a helpless look and shrug because actually listing my favorite books would take far too long and probably bore them.
However, given that I'm eating dinner with the character, let's arbitrarily limit the pool to characters from a relatively modern version of the world. Otherwise they would totally be freaked out by kitchen appliances and Magic Phone. (This is how I refer to my Android. Don't judge me.) So that leaves us with about half of a gazillion books. (Does anyone know what half a gazillion is?) And because this is a blog hop, let's make it something a little obscure so that I can induce other people to read books I love - hooray brainwashing!

Aha! I have it. I will have dinner with Mercury from Robert Kroese's Mercury Falls, a brilliant and hilariously irreverent angel. He can do impressive card tricks and make clever dinner conversation. He'll also come in handy if the dinner party somehow gets hit by a Class Five Pillar of Fire. I don't cook all that much, so I think we'll have pasta, but I am all about the baking, so there will be heavenly chocolate cake for dessert (pun absolutely intended).
