Five Books

Our workplace social committee is running a summer challenge, and I thought I would pose this week's question to all of you:
A disaster is about to happen (apocalypse, zombies taking over the world, stranded on a desert island, the choice is yours) and you can only save 5 books.  What 5 books would you save?
I answered:

1. The Bible - for spiritual sustenance and survival I couldn't do without it

2. The Ultimate Survival Manual, Canadian edition - for obvious reasons.

and for pure reading pleasure:

3. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

4. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

5. Charlotte's Web by E.B. White

I would never get tired of them. Interesting that #3-5 are all written by authors who go by their initials!

I would not take: Ulysses by James Joyce. It has sat on my home bookshelf for years (since I was in university!) and I have yet to read it even once.
How about you? Which five titles would you choose to save?


  1. I love your book choices Susan! I love all (but not familiar with the Survival one - as a Canadian, I should check that one out).

    I would save my Bible for sure but I'm not sure on my other 4 picks. I'll have to think on that one!

    Thanks for sharing!

    PS - This is a belated visit from Coach Daddy's 6 words post.

    1. Thanks for visiting, Jennifer! I hope you'll stop by when you decide on your other pics - or write your own blog post about it!

    2. P.S. I tried leaving a comment on your 'What It's Like Living with Anxiety' post, but it doesn't look like it worked :(

  2. Hello from the A to Z Post-Challenge Road Trip. It’s nice to stop by and visit via this more leisurely route.
    I love Charlotte's Web! Definately in my top 10 list.
    Have a wonderful day!

    1. Thanks, Trisha! I'm looking to make my way along the road trip beginning in September. Sooo busy this summer already!


I appreciate your comments and try to respond to each one!
