  2. I would hope my elevator would open to a nice sunny beach where I could relax while i get my memory back...with my luck it will probably open to factory where i have to work 20 hr days with no heating/air conditioning LOL

  4. Let's see...my elevator would open up into the Realms from Libba Bray's A Great and Terrible Beauty. Not very original, but after reading that book they just sounded so awesome, even with the bad stuff!

  5. I wouldn't care where my elevator opens up to as long as my family is there...but it would be kind of cool if there was a volcano.

  6. It would be great if the elevator door opened up to Bloomingdales, but Sak's would be okay too.

  7. I love the request to make the comments more interesting. (I feel your pain -- my blog has two contests running currently, and as part of the requirements, we make people answer a specific, fun question.) Ok, to keep with the elevator theme, my elevator would open up to Surfer's Paradise beach in Australia, where I once spent a semester "studying" abroad. Especially because it's summer there!

  12. I was just looking at this at the bookstore and thought it sounded interesting. I've heard that it's good, but never really knew what it was about. Now, I must get it! ^_^

    Hopefully, my elevator would open to some kind of superhero headquarters, where I would learn that I had incredible ablilities and it was up to me to save the world. ;)

  19. I honestly don't know where I'd want my elevator to open up, so can I cheat and answer the question of where I'd want it NOT to open? Because with no memories I'd definately not want to be in a war zone, the middle of the sahara or antartica =)

  23. Well, I hope the elevator doors would open up to some swanky penthouse filled with food and books, haha. But in all honesty I'm not that lucky. It would probably open to some insane asylum with no lights, no food, and no easy way out. *shivers*

  26. My elevator would most likely open up to a hallway with a bunch of hotel room doors and my tale would start off from there. Probably only remember a number that would be on a door on that floor and when I go to open it....

  40. If I woke up in the elevator this year, it would probably lead to some post-apocalyptic dystopian society where I had to compete for my life! ROFL. So let's hope I wake up in 2010 and the elevator opens up in Paris :-)

  42. My elevator door would open up inside a library because I, like everyone here, am a book-lover, and that would be my favorite place to find myself!! Plus, I could ask a librarian to tell me where in the world I am because librarians always have the answers to our questions (or know where to find them)!!

  62. Wow, good question! This took some thought and my answer is, I believe the elevator would probaly open up into one of my worst nightmares. Yeah not the answer I would have wanted but I tried to think of where I believed it would open, based on your scenario, and not where I would want it to open.

    Totally awesometastic contest by the way!

  66. I'd hope my elevator would take me to someplace cool - like a land of lazer tagging or an infinate barnes & noble...

    but with my luck, I'd land in some Hunger Games like scenario - only all the kids killing each other off for something 'important' like getting invited to the popular kid's party...

    That's probably what would happen.
