This week’s question: Which books would you recommend to Dumbledore?
When I first saw this question I was just like, well… I have no idea how to answer that. What evil genius even come up with a question like this!? 😀
I had to have a good think. I thought about what Dumbledore is all about… magic, power, redemption, courage, wisdom. And I eventually came up with these three books/series that I think Dumbledore would enjoy because, basically, he would fit right in.
The Lord of The Rings by J. R. R Tolkien
I feel like this will basically be on everyone’s list, but decided to go with it anyway. I think Dumbledore would really enjoy this story of adventure, sacrifice, magic and friendship, and everything else this series is about as, let’s face it, LOTR pretty much has everything. Besides, I strongly believe that Dumbledore would find his book soul mate in Gandalf heh.
The Dark Tower by Stephen King
Maybe I’m recommending this to Dumbledore because I just finished it and it’s still on my mind and I just need to recommend it to everyone on the planet, fictional or otherwise, but I really do think Dumbledore would enjoy this series a great deal and that it would even surprise and impress him, the greatest wizard of his time.
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
I wanted to chose a non-fantasy, literary classic for Dumbledore and I don’t know specifically why I chose this one, but I just feel like it’s a book Dumbledore would enjoy and perhaps, in some way, even relate to, as it’s a novel about temptation and power, which is something Dumbledore himself struggled with.
Well, there you go :). What books do you think Dumbledore should read?
