message 24: by Seema (new)

Seema Dubey (seemadubey) | 11 comments 1. War and Peace-Tolstoy
2. Atlas Shrugged-Ayn Rand
3. Gone with the Wind-Margaret Mitchel

All 3 are tomes and likely to take weeks to finish-also the smaller print makes reading equally longer. Read all 3 in my teens-each book in under a week! Those were the days, my friend...

message 29: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Ramirez (melissaramirez) | 241 comments Looking for Alaska, by John Green
What Happens Next, by Colleen Clayton
Please Ignore Vera Dietz, by AS King

Those are my three. If something unexpected were to happen, and I could take more books, then I'd also add "Ramona the Brave" by Beverly Cleary. Just because if I was stranded on an island, I'd probably be very upset, and I don't know that I'd feel like reading about deep, dramatic stuff - sometimes you just need a kids' book!

I know, I know, you said only 3.
I'll stop now. :)

Smart. I would wish for something similar (Survival Guidebook), maybe something inspirational about survival like Life of Pi, and something spiritual that I could go back to repeatedly. Pragmatism...
