Top Ten Tuesday #31

toptentuesdayTop Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

July 11, 2017 TopicTop Ten Books I’d Want On A Deserted Island!

The gals over at the Broke and the Bookish are taking the summer off, but I figured I would use the time to post on a TTT topic I haven’t done yet. Besides, who hasn’t thought about the books they’d want on a deserted  island? And since I probably couldn’t bring my Kindle and all the books on it, cause you know battery life… here are my picks.

 

Top Ten Books I’d Want On A Deserted Island!

  1. The Bible – for the encouragement and hope.
  2. SAS Survival Handbook – for the practical advice.
  3. Foraging – seems smart to have a book like this with you on a deserted island.
  4. War and Peace – because it’s been on my TBR forever and this is pretty much the only way it’s going to get read.
  5. Where the Sidewalk Ends – cause I’d need a poetry book, but not one that took itself too serious.
  6. Celebration of Discipline – because I would have time on my hands, and this would help fill it.
  7. The Allan Quatermain Series – for the entertainment.
  8. The Great Library Book Series – also for entertainment and because it’s a series I’ve been meaning to read.
  9. National Geographic People of the World – so I wouldn’t feel so alone, or so that I could at least remember what other people looked like.
  10. The Potpourrific Great Big Grab Bag of Get Fuzzy – for the laughs.

That’s my list. Did I miss anything obvious? (I purposely didn’t put the Complete Shakespeare on this list because I’ve already read so much by him and I think I’d want to read new material. Also no complete Jane Austin because frankly she’s not my style.)
