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

People who added this item 44  Average listal rating (19 ratings) 9.2  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.

People who added this item 28  Average listal rating (18 ratings) 9.1  IMDB Rating
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.
Mackenzi's rating:

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 (40 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:

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 248  Average listal rating (141 ratings) 7.7  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.

11. The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook - Joshua Piven
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.
