    Default You're packing your bag for a deserted island, what 5 books do you take with you?

    1. The Stand, Stephen King
    it's a book I've always wanted to read, but for some reason have yet to get around to it - I figure this would be as good a time as any.

    2. The Bible
    it's got a lot going for it, what can I say. Were I in the mood for almost any sort of reading, it is in this book - also it's got a handy list of foods I should and should not eat...that might come in handy.

    3. The Complete Sherlock Holmes, Arthur Conan Doyle
    interesting enough stories and characters, so I am pretty sure it wouldn't get boring, also I've not read all of them yet - and though re-reading my favorite books might have been what was intended here...I would rather be 'stuck' with something new. Cheesy

    4. The Eyes of the Dragon, Stephen King
    it was a choice between my 3 fave books for which book I'd bring for 're-readable' value...and this one just happened to win out today.

    5. The Universe in a Nutshell, Stephen Hawking
    cause it's a good read, and makes ya think AND teaches ya cool stuffs
