In a poll I posted to help us all get to know each other I asked the question:
If you could only ever read one book forever, what book would you choose?
Now many of you did say you’d rather not live, and though I’m sure many others felt torn between that option and having to chose, they did choose. I have compiled the following montage.
There can only be one, one book to rule them all!
Part TWO of Three:
by Charles Dickens
Yes I did start with this one do to the Irony
Good choice though, good choice 🙂
by Elizabeth Gasket
Another great classics choice!
by Octavia E. Butler
I know series seem a little bit like a cheat, but I will allow them of course, plus this one is in one volume so it’s definitely not a cheat.
Randomly surprise me!
Okay here goes…
Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund:
Adventures of the Wiener Dog Extraordinaire
by Ryan Beauchesne
I clicked highly rated, then sorted by best reviewed and this was the top book, hopefully that’s random enough hehe. Hey, I’m actually a little intrigued.
Plato: Complete Works
Well this would definitely occupy the mind!
by J.D. Salinger
To Kill a Mockingbird
by Harper Lee
I’d cheat & write new ones!
A noble choice 🙂
by Margaret Mitchell
A sweeping epic saga, such a perfect choice!
by Louise Hay
Staying motivated, I like it.
by J.K. Rowling
Sorta cheating I know… but it’s Potter so we can’t really argue with that choice 🙂
by M.L. Forman
Never heard of it, but I like the title! Looks good.
An eye opening choice 😉

Dear and Glorious Physician

The Bible was chosen over 10 times but this one specified modern sand told us why, so I included it again. And I chose the New International Version.
by Gregory Maguire
Fun choice! I’ve never read it but I’d like to.
by Carol Goodman
Haven’t read it, but what and intriguing title 🙂

So bring your book covered or in a brown paper bag, write the genre on the outside and/or a few tidbits about the book, but keep it a mystery!
