11 Books I'd Bring to a Deserted Island
14 8.7 01. The Shadow of the Wind - Carlos Ruiz Zafón
The best book I ever read. I just like to have it with me.
44 9.2 02. The Last Unicorn - Peter S. Beagle
The most beautiful book I ever read; reading it is like finding an oasis of beauty, and it gives you a lot to think about, so it'll keep my mind busy.
4 8 03. Jonathan Livingston Seagull - Richard Bach
A book that I've come to love more than any actual religious text. It'll help me get through the hard times.
28 9 04. Blood Bound (Mercy Thompson, Book 2) - Patricia Briggs
I can't get by on just the spiritual/beautiful stuff, I need a little sexy entertainment as well.
5 7.3 05. The Last Battle (The Chronicles of Narnia) - C. S. Lewis
The first book I read of the series, it's the most meaningful to me, even though it's also very sad. A good one for when my last days may be spent in isolation.
53 8.7 06. The Little Prince - Richard Howard_II,Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
I probably wouldn't read it often, it is so sad, but I'd like to have it just in case. To feel like someone else is going through what I am deserted and all alone.
82 8.6 07. Where the Sidewalk Ends: Poems and Drawings - Shel Silverstein
A book to remind me about the good, wholesome things I won't be able to have anymore.
684 7.4 08. Lord of the Flies - William Golding
I've never read this book so I figure I'd want something new there with me, to help keep me sane. And it's got a relevant plot.
248 7.7 09. Jurassic Park: A Novel - Michael Crichton
Adventure and a little horror. It takes me a while to get through Crichton books so it'll help pass the time.
18 7.8 010. Ivanhoe (Penguin Popular Classics) - Walter Scott
I like to read Ivanhoe every few years to see how differently I interpret the story, and I bet it'll be a whole new experience if I'm stuck on an island.
22 6.9 011. The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook - Joshua Piven
Well duh. ;)
