Definitely this book because she runs a bookstore in Scotland and the people like to read! This book was a surprise hit for me but I love the idyllic setting.

Great question @BarbaraTheBibliophage ! Sorry I missed it earlier. Of course I'd beam into #nonfiction. I'd love to befriend Hope and swap stories about being women in science. I so loved her perspectives in this book! 👩🏻‍🔬👩🏻‍⚕️ #beamintobooks

BarbaraTheBibliophage Oooh! Great idea! I know one recent nonfiction read I DON'T want to beam into (although it was a great book). 6y
Megabooks Added! Sounds awesome! 6y
tpixie Loved Lab Girl!! @BarbaraTheBibliophage I've got City of Light on my shelf, just begging to be read!! 6y

#beamintobooks okay @BarbaraTheBibliophage , I've thought about this for a few days and I decided on The Land of Stories - I couldn't pick any place that was too scary or treacherous because honestly, I'm not sure I could hang. 🤷🏻‍♀️😂

josie281 Oh! I will go with you! I love these books. Just bought the audio of the last one 6y
BarbaraTheBibliophage Good thought. Life here is scary enough- let's go somewhere lovely! 6y
Smangela @josie281 Yay! A traveling companion 😉 I need to catch up! I did the first three on audio and boom there are now, what 3 more?? Chris Colfer did an amazing job with the narrating (IMO) 6y
Smangela @BarbaraTheBibliophage right? I was like, hmmm, if I'm going somewhere else it needs to be a happy place 😂 6y
josie281 @Smangela he does a wonderful job with the narration! I think 6 in total... 6y

Anne McCaffery's #Pern series was absolutely the first thing I thought of for this. They've been a favorite for almost 25 years, plus who wouldn't want to fly on a dragon???

Alternatatively: Tamora Pierce's #Tortall world would be my second choice, because I want to meet the badass ladies who make that world so amazing.

#beamintobooks

BarbaraTheBibliophage Somebody else picked dragon riding too! I'm in!! 👏🏻👏🏻 6y
monkeygirlsmama I've been trying to come up with an answer for this since I first saw someone else post it yesterday. I can't. 😜 6y
lauren.lerner @monkeygirlsmama - my problem was I couldn't pick just one.... limited myself to two for the purpose of this post 🙈 6y

lauren.lerner Dragons all day every day, @BarbaraTheBibliophage!! 😉 6y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @monkeygirlsmama Maybe that means you're happy with this life! But if it's too many options, then I say pick two like @lauren.lerner did! 😎 6y
monkeygirlsmama @BarbaraTheBibliophage @lauren.lerner Just can't come up with any at all. 🤔 6y

#beamintobooks I'm going to avoid historical books as much as I love them (thus missing out on Byron or The Fitzgeralds - sigh ) and go with a crew I'd love to hang out with - "don't mind me I'm just hitching a ride to the Galactic Commons with Becky Chambers" (book tag in comments) Making friends with aliens and sentient spaceships and having rollicking adventures sounds like me ?

BarbaraJean Can I come, too? 😏Such a great choice!! 6y
Centique @BarbaraJean absolutely - the more the merrier! 6y

I think it would be so cool to be a demigod at Camp Half Blood, even with all the dangerous quests and battles. #BeamIntoBooks @BarbaraTheBibliophage

Sace Oooo. Yeah! That *is* a good one. 6y
BarbaraTheBibliophage Demigod sounds fantastic! 6y
Billypar For some reason The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle popped into my head for this. Some parts would be pretty scary, but that could be part of the fun. 6y
