You are stranded on a desert island but get to bring three books with you. What are those books?

I would bring a hollowed out version of the Klencke Atlas, world's largest book. Inside I'd find a knife, space blanket, beet seeds, CB radio, batteries, an axe and waterproof matches. Last two books I'd choose are "The cat in the hat" and "How the Grinch stole Christmas." by Dr. Seuss. You are stranded on a desert island but get to bring three books with you. What are those books??

  • I don't know why I laughed when I read you would chose The Cat in the Hat and How the Grinch Stole Christmas Lol. Mine aren't any better nothing beats Dr. Seuss, man is a freaking rhyming genius. But yeah I try. My choices are The Hunger Games (which is probably dumb because I would feel even more hungry reading it than I'm already am stranded on a desert island) but the book does have good survival tips and I can imagine I am as strong as Katniss and not feel alone in my horrid ordeal (probably hallucination will make this possible as I grow delirious). And finally because they are basically the Hunger Games I would bring Divergent and The Maze Runner as well.

  • It says that you need 6 people to carry that book, it is too heavy, how can you bring it with you then?

    • Ok. But I think you should throw in a ferro rod instead of the matches, it is waterproof and more reliable than matches, plus you can use it longer than matches.

    • No fishing line?

  • Book on edible fish (I assume dessert island means no plant life) to eat.
    A book on code languages (Morse, semiphore, etc) to call for help.
    And a book on meditation or coping with solitude, etc so I don't go mad.
