what would it be?
it could be your favorite novel, something useful, like "how to Build a Boat Out of Driftwood", or something entertaining, like an adult magazine. Your choice!
The complete works of Shakespeare and tell the life boat people to take their time.
Luabu says hi!
I'd figure out a way to write my own.
The DaVinci Code, I could read it over and over again.
Because I already have the jist of the Holy Bible in my heart/mind. So I could always burn that Koran and know that a whole carpload of civil rights activists would find me reeeeal soon and give me a ride back to the mainland.
War and Peace...I would finally have the time to read through the whole thing!
I brough a book on Plato once on a long car trip, so I would finally force myself to read it:)
Don't waste your time. He's a bore. It's about Russia. LOL
So you've read War & Peace start to finish? Or you just don't like Russia?
Having read it twice, I'd have to say that it's a very good read that has been insulted for its size far too much over the years and is in fact very worthy of being taken to a desert island.
The biggest, fattest, most comprehensive, dictionary I could find (the kind that has lots of other stuff to look, besides just definitions). A big, fat, dictionary with lots of stuff in it offers all kinds of "open-ended" word play, memorizing, browsing, and general "verbal entertainment" and odd kind of reading pleasure.
Besides, I could also use it as a little stool to sit on (to make myself feel a little more as if I were in a civilized living situation), a little step-stool (which might be helpful with some things involving trees), an anchor belongings if the island got windy, and any number of handy purposes.
Yes, such a book would be cumbersome and heavy - but, heck, where would I be going anyway? Of course, it might make handy "firewood" if I thought any helicopters might be coming by... Oh, also - the more pages, the more "note paper" there would be if I had reason to want to leave, send, messages anywhere in some way (maybe a Hansel and Gretel type of path if I needed that.)
The Phone Book!
( If you can imagine I'm stuck on an island ,then I can imagine I have a cell-phone)
I actually thought of a phone book too - but I wasn't imaginative enough to imagine a cell phone. I was just thinking a phone book offers lots of potential for word games, idle nosiness, memorizing numbers - and the rest of the stuff a dictionary (from my first post) offers.
Mark Twain. It doesn't matter which, though Connecticut Yankee is a good choice.
Unless a MacBook counts as a book..
Given that everyone here has written a hub on how great the Kindle is (don't deny it) - I'm surprised no one has mentioned the, er, excellent qualities of the item.
So a Kindle for reading and some weighty manuscript for toilet paper perhaps.
Sorry. Bit up myself there.
Playboy archive shhh rememeber I'm the only one on my stranded island. I hear it's really good reading with great articles.
"How to survive on a deserted island."
Somebody should have written it.
I would bring my bible. I could read it until the day I die.
For me-probably a 'how to survive' manuel of some sort... I know, pretty boring.
"Final Exit" by Derek Humphry. I can't find it at the library...nobody ever brings it back.
A photo book of all my friends and family people I'd miss.
a king or a coelho would be great. Or dc comics:D
Or dhup BOOK(bok)kee or beef BOOK choy. I think those BOOKs are good for my tummy...anyway, those are Korean dishes...lol
Assuming I'm stranded alone, The Black Dagger Brotherhood series. It's one long book really, and good for the long, lonely nights ;-)

If you were stranded on a deserted island what 10 items would you want to have with you?Think in terms of realistic things that you could have brought with you if possible but anything that would make being stranded bearable to you personally.

If you could only take 5 things with you to a deserted island, what would you choose?Rules: Cannot ever leave island (so taking a boat in hopes of leaveing would not work because of a magical forcefield)Anything you take will never stop working (like an ipod)You cannot have access to anyone else...
