That would be a very difficult choice between Narnia and Middle-Earth! (For the record, I'm just now not considering the 'Jane Austen world' as a fictional realm, that's just a historical realm. So if the question would be: If you could enter any time period in history, which would it be?, then I would answer: the Regency period!)

Cinderella, because it's such a universal story of breaking from your barriers and it can therefore be told in so many different ways. There's the magical Disney story, but also a more real-life historical version as Ever After, but the story can also easily be placed in a modern society. Actually, at the moment I'm reading the novel Confessions of an ugly stepsister by Gregory Maguire. A story, based on the Cinderella fairytale, but without magic, taking place in 17th century The Netherlands, but written by an American author, and told from the viewpoint of the ugly stepsister, who really isn't so evil as we always thought. Go figure!

I've never answered a Writer's Block before, but this one appealed to me! I personally believe you can learn many things about people from their bookshelves. I stare at people's bookshelves when I first visit their house. I even happen to have a picture of my booshelves on my Photobucket...

It's a bit old, about 2 years, there are many more books by now, but it gives you an idea:

"The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid." )
