Walking Books?

At the end of Fahrenheit 451, Montag meets a rag-tag band of people who are essentially "walking books." They have each memorized one, word for word.

Currently, I am a "walking book" for this one:
U-Kid 2 approaches me constantly with it lately, waving it at me with a sweet, hopeful look in her beautiful blue eyes.

What are you a "walking book" for lately?

I wish I was a walking book! Right now I'm a walking blog from reading decorating-type blogs too much. You want to know what Pioneer woman thinks about kitchen decorating? On page 6? I could probably tell you word for word.

My kids love Tumble Bumble too. We don't own it, but grammy does so we read it there. It's cute!
