A link for my friend Jim, who likes to play with words. (scroll down to “Curve O Learning”)

My most memorable gift ever was from my friend Jim. During our first year of college, he sent me a care package containing about a dozen novels. Inside was a letter describing the wonderful party he was going to have, and he was inviting all of his favorite fictional characters. On the inside cover of each novel a short sentance or two describing why that particular character was being invited to his party. The only stipulation was that I had to finish one book before starting another.

People like Fletch, Travis McGee, the Gilbreths in Cheaper by the Dozen, Atticus and Scout Finch, etc,etc.

I’m sure by now he’d add more to his list. Who would you add to yours?
