I like it quiet, though usually a beverage is good!

Up to 3. Usually one fiction and one nonfiction and occasionally one for a review.
11. If you were allowed to have a party and you could invite any three book characters, which three book characters would you invite and why?
Dr. Watson (Sherlock Holmes' sidekick) mostly because he is the storyteller and would have all the color of Homes without the ascerbity. Boomir (from The Fellowship of the Ring) because he is one of the most complex characters in the book. The Raven (from Poe) because I'd like to know where he gets off with his "nevermore".
