Inspired by such a post on Mere Comments, here's the question: what five books would you want if marooned on a desert island?
for starters, here are my picks:
1) The Bible; 2) The Lord of the Rings; 3) Pride and Prejudice; 4) Out of the Silent Planet; and 5) the largest volume of Shakespeare allowed me. At least including Macbeth.
Honorable mention goes to some works I've never actually gotten around to... I figure with all that time on my hands I could tackle The Republic or finally finish The Count of Monte Cristo and Walden among other things. I decided to leave them off though, and stick to what I've read.
So let's hear!
