You're stuck inside Fahrenheit 451. Which book do you want to be?
If you've not read it or seen the film then you need to know this is a novel of a future world where fascist anti-intellectualism rules and dissidents take it upon themselves to memorize and thus become a book, a perpetuation of a treasured work of learning or literature, against the day when it is safe once again to think freely.
I would be To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I did not read this until I was an adult. I was struck by how the book captures the ephemeral nature of childhood and it has two of my favorite characters of all time, Scout and Atticus.
