Stranded on a deserted island

Well, hopefully not. I’m leaving for a cruise today so for the next week or so, my view will look something like this…aug19-sunsetIn preparation for this trip, I’m packing bathing suits, towels, lots of sunscreen, and something to keep me entertained as I’m lounging on the deck, taking in the sunset.

Which got me thinking… what books would I want if I got stranded on an island somewhere along this trip? Here’s the list that I came up with:

The Little PrinceThe Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery (Because no book has ever made me feel so positive about life in general, which I think I would need if I was stranded on a deserted island.)

11The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams (The actual guide, since it has every answer that you may want to know. Oh, that’s fictional? Well, I guess Douglas Adams’ book would be pretty good, too.)

treasure-islandTreasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson (I would definitely be channeling my inner Jim Hawkins. Plus, finding gold and having a parrot wouldn’t be so bad.)

Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell (If I’m stuck on a deserted island, I’d better be stuck on it with Rhett Butler. I’m not sure if it really qualifies as “stuck” at that point.)


What books would you take to a deserted island?
