Since it’s Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d play a little game. The one called “If You Were Stranded on a Desert Island…”
(Also, my kids are driving me crazy and I can’t bend my mind to think of anything useful to blog about.)
So, here’s the question:
If you were stranded on a desert island and could only have one book for the rest of your life, what book would you choose?
For me, it would be the Norton Anthology of English Literature. I know, I know. Choosing an anthology is kind of cheating, but I love that book. It’s got a little of everything, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Tennyson, Wordsworth. Enough meat to keep me chewing for a long time.
It’s true though; eventually I might perish from lack of a good novel. You can only eat meat for so long before your body craves something sweet. Luckily, I’m a writer! I can just write my own novel. Don’t laugh, it could work…
Leave a comment and tell us what book you would choose.
And do I really need to say that picking your Kindle or iPad actually is cheating? It has to be ONE book. There’s no electricity anyway, so all that technology equipment is useless.
