1. The Shadow of the Wind - Carlos Ruiz Zafón
The best book I ever read. I just like to have it with me.

People who added this item 44  Average listal rating (19 ratings) 9.1  IMDB Rating
2. 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.
Mackenzi's rating:

People who added this item 4  Average listal rating (3 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating
3. 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.

4. 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.

People who added this item 5  Average listal rating (3 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
5. 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.

6. 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.
Mackenzi's rating:

People who added this item 82  Average listal rating (41 ratings) 8.6  IMDB Rating
7. 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.
Mackenzi's rating:

People who added this item 675  Average listal rating (398 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
8. 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.

People who added this item 245  Average listal rating (138 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
9. 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.
Mackenzi's rating:

People who added this item 17  Average listal rating (8 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
10. 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.

Well duh. ;)

I'd need a steamer trunk to take all the books I'd want with me if I were stuck on an island...or perhaps a notebook or laptop w/ a nuclear battery that never ran out, where I could store them all. ;D

Very cool list! This reminds me that I really need to get back to reading.
