Gravity's Rainbow
Sometimes a Great Notion
and... lets about
Great Books of the Western World
(hey, it's got a single ISBN, so it counts as one book, right?)

ba I might have been a more relevant topic had I spelled 'desert' correctly. As it stands, I might've been talking about some chocolate atoll off the coast of Candyland and my list would include a mixed berry cobbler.

I like your inclusion of David Sedaris. You might well need to have an occasional chuckle while on the island, which I had neglected.

Dan I swear this will change in five minutes, and they're in no particular order, but . . .

1. The Portable Mark Twain
2. The Complete Poems of Sylvia Plath
3. Small Gods by Terry Pratchett
4. The Thousand Nights in a Night
5. The SAS Survival Handbook (well, I am alone on an island, right?)

message 7: by Christy (last edited Aug 25, 2016 11:57AM) (new)

Christy (readingkiki) great question.

1. dandelion wine by ray bradbury (always gives me the warm fuzzies)
2. a tree grows in brooklyn by betty smith (for some reason i can read this one over and over)
3. zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance by robert pirsig (another one i can read again and again and always take away something new)
4. the portable john steinbeck (a bunch of great steinbeck works all condensed into one volume)
5. the dharma bums by jack kerouac (gotta have some kerouac in there)

message 8: by Nate (last edited Aug 25, 2016 12:00PM) (new)

Nate (innatejames) Geek Love (Katherine Dunn) to remind me I might very well be better off on a deserted island.

Atlantis (Mark Doty) to give me hope.

The Power of One (Bryce Courtenay) to give me strength.

The Swiss Family Robinson for when I feel like I'm the only one in the world that has been stranded on a deserted island.

Breathe, You Are Alive (Thich Naht Hahn) for clarity.

message 9: by Clare (last edited Aug 25, 2016 12:01PM) (new)

Clare shakespeare complete works

OED unabridged

i ching

the CS Lewis Space Trilogy (yes, it's all in one book)

Clare oh gosh, just the golden compass? do they not have his dark materials in one volume yet?
if i had to take just one it would be The Amber Spyglass.

such great books.

message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

- Ragtime, Doctorow
- Notes from a Small Island (the irony alone is worth it), Bryson
- The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Chabon
- The Town and the City, Kerouac
- The Lord of the Rings Volume (It's not cheating for Tolkien wrote all as one; okay, it's kinda cheating), Tolkien

of course, if it was a dessert island, books would be my second concern. all that chocolate would be my first.
