You are stuck on a deserted island for the rest of your life (with DH/SO! I know I'd be too depressed without him lol) and you only get to have 3 books with you. Which 3 do you choose??
My 3 would definitely have to be:
1. Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk
2. To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee
3. The Idiot's Guide to Surviving on a Deserted Island Just kidding! That would be cheating I'd pick The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
That is a very hard question...books are my life
1. my bible
2. I have a huge anthology of over 100 classic novels and short stories...I know that is cheating but it is all in "one" book and it has all my favorite classics
3. and of course i need a cute romance to get me through...I'm currently reading "Yours to Keep"
1. Harriet the Spy (yes, a kids book, but I could read it over and over and over...)
2. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (it would be cheating to bring them all, and as of yet, I haven't found one of those books with all the HP's in it )
3. I have a book of useless information and fun questions (much like the original question here) - I can't remember what it's called at the moment, but that might be some really good entertainment!
Karin and Nikki--I totally agree with you that HP and the Goblet of Fire is the best(and my favorite!) of the series! I wish the movie had done it more justice, though!
Stef--I have about 3 or 4 (maybe even more from college...) huge books that include 100s of stories and poetry that I absolutely love I wouldn't consider that cheating

I'd like to think that I will personally never own a nook or kindle... I love the feel (and smell!) of a real book too much! Also, I want a library in my house some day, and I don't think an electronic device would suffice
I always felt that way too. Until I bought one. The look is identical to a real book and no pesky problem of trying to figure out how to pack 20 books for a vacation. aaand new releases cost like at least 1/2 off of buying them in a store. I ran out of bookshelves waaaay too many times before I got mine.
