This week's topic is not to be taken lightly. These are books that will be with you forever on whatever deserted island you find yourself on. Kindles will do us no good and we must think very carefully about what books we will spend the rest of our lives with, should we not be rescued.
Here are mine, in no particular order. Ten fiction and the single solitary non-fiction, which will surprise exactly no one.
Because OF COURSE I would never go anywhere without
Dan Jones The Plantagenets. After all, this is the book that named my baby.
Life wouldn't be too terrible on a deserted island with these eleven books. However, I'd prefer to not be stranded and to just read them all at home.
