What book would you want to have on a deserted island?

Post by kio »

I'm ever the practical one, so I'd want a book on how to get off a deserted island or a book on how to survive on one :)

What book would you want to have with you if you were stranded on a deserted island?

A magical book that could be any (and every) book :shhh:
Personal pronouns:She/Her

Dried leaves and broken hearts are similar enough...
Both became inanimate after getting detached from their soulmate

I would probably want my copy of Dune. It's my favorite book and I always enjoy rereading it.

If I can chose only one - How to survive on a deserted island. Apart from that, I'd like to have a collection of the best Romance Short Stories.

I know it is an old book, but I still love The Mists of Avalon. A great book with a totally different perspective on Camelot. Just and engrossing book.
