    You may keep only one book.  Which one will it be?

    Think of this as a slight variation on the FAHRENHEIT 451 premise:  all books will be destroyed.
    The variation:  each person may keep one book. What book would you choose to keep?

    Hmm.... something that I'll read time and time again, something that I can learn from and gain inspiration from. Either Stephen King's Blaze (yes, written as Richard Bachman) or Max Brooks' Zombie Survival Guide.

    hmm...I don't know If I'd keep a book. I've read so much its already in my head. After awhile reading it so much you'd have it memorized. lol

    I would be 'Don't Sweat the Small Stuff.' It is filled with lots of ideas and suggestons that keep one grounded. My Bible verses are in my heart and mind...so the book that I can touch would be DSTSS.

    Can I keep the Oxford English Dictionary? I have the one-volume edition, so that should count as one book (although it weighs about 40 pounds!).

    I love so many books!  If I could only pick one, it would be a book of daily Christian devotionals.

    I think I'd take my Collected Works of Shakespeare. (If that's allowed, of course.)

    The dictionary, as I grow older, I can't remember how to spell many words.

    If I have to choose one book I would go with a book which I have not read yet.

    I am familiar with the writings of Bill Bryson, having read several of his books about his experiences living in Britain and the United States, and find him very funny.

    The book I would choose is Bill Bryson's The History of Almost Everything.
