Happy New Year 2022!
Last year, I asked which book you would take if you were banished to a desert island and could only take one? Here's what you said:
"I love the compartmentalization of the narrator into such different categories in separate notebooks- writer, lover, political activist - and understand how the political events threaten to dissolve her sanity. Plus the sex writing is very graphic! "
"Journey. Resilience. The evolution of a relationship with yourself."
"'Long Life' by Mary Oliver is a short book of essays and poetry about observing nature. It seems like the perfect encouragement for accepting and learning to enjoy being stranded somewhere…"
"I think I might prefer a book of favorite photos of family friends and places we've visited."
The Bible has everything: history, philosophy, poetry, good news, bad news...and it's long enough to last! -kb
One reader wanted to sneak in extra books...
The Good Soldier, Ford Madox Ford
Anna Karenina, Tolstoy
Saturday, Ian MacEwan
and maybe Red Notice by Bill Browder, a non-fiction book to break the monotony
...while others had different ideas:
"If I am on an island alone I don’t want to read, just be alone in peace and quiet."
"I would be more concerned about creature comforts like A/C, fresh drinking water, electricity, bug spray and a flushing toilet!!!
Thanks for participating!
