T is for Tardis

I'm SURE you all know what a TARDIS is, but just in case there's someone reading who hasn't seen Dr. Who, it was a police box that was basically like a small, free-standing closet sitting on the sidewalk. But when Dr. Who walked into it, we saw that on the inside it was really a multi-levelled time-and-space travelling machine.

Pretty cool.

And the best books are like that. They look so small and innocuous, but wen you open them up and start reading, they take on extra dimensions and transport you to another time and place.

So do that with your book. Make your book a TARDIS.

What TARDIS-like books have you read lately?


  1. So true Ishta. What a great word for "T". Very original and tied to what makes a book great.

  2. Mudbound by Hillary Jordan was just such a book for me. It placed me in an environment I couldn't imagine. Not a very pleasant one, but an uplifting ending.

  3. Great T. I love the idea of books as a TaRDIS!

  4. Great analogy! I have a tardis on my computer router and it makes that awesome take-off sound. Love it!
