Five Essential Books

Reformed Pastor asks which five essential books I’d want on a desert island, with the Bible granted as a freebie. My five are:

1. Any book on boat building (this is assuming I’m shipwrecked, of course…)

2. The Chronicles of Narnia

3. The complete Signet Classic Shakespeare

4. Norton Anthology of English Literature

5. The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit

Ok, so that’s six.  Oh well….

  1. Of course I’d want the Bible, but after that, I’d pick:

    1) Complete Works of William Shakespeare
    2) Botanica
    3) Collected Works of Jane Austen
    4) Paradise Lost
    5) Oxford English Dictionary

    Oh, yes, Jane Austen. I think the solution is to choose five books that will help me escape from the island and get back to my home library…..
