If I were stranded on a desert island I would want some survival books and some medical books too. Also some things I had never read before.

Benjamin Kuttner If this was not just an armchair exercise - i.e choose your favorite books... I'd take books that made me laugh to keep my spirits up (and not take my predicament too seriously), also inspirational ones that made me believe I could beat the odds. Survival books are not a bad idea either and all of these not on your kindle reader!

BookLovingLady If I could just bring the one, then without a shred of a doubt: Pride and Prejudice :-) Although it might be far more sensible to bring some kind of book on how to survive on a desert island :-)


message 13: by jess (new)

jess honestly How to Build and Sail Small Boats - Canoes - Punts and Rafts is my number one vote for this list
