Book Blogger Hop #2

I'm taking part in the Book Blogger Hop, hosted by Crazy for Books. Although this week, it's being hosted by Lori's Reading Corner.

 "Who is the one author that you are dying to meet?"

I wasn't sure if I was allowed to give the name of a dead person, but I checked and others seem to have. So I am going to say Roald Dahl. The things I've heard about Dahl make him seem like fantastic company - it's said that he was so gifted with words and imagination that he could make the most mundane conversation sound amazing and that his children's friends used to beg to sleep over at the Dahl house, because it meant hearing the most brilliant bedtime stories. If I met Dahl, I would like to thank him for making me a lover of books, as his were the first I ever fell for.

  1. Great answer! Dahl was a magician. Did you know he also had a bit of 007 in him? Yep. He was a secret agent for Great Britain.

  2. Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Roald Dahl is such a good answer, I love him. The BFG is one of the first books I remember loving as a kid. I also have a book of his short stories which are fantastic. I'm feeling a reread coming on! :)
