Which book would you take with you to an isolated island, and why?
Option 1) Playboy Almanac. For obvious reasons... :P
Option 2) A very old dictionary I have which is thousands of very large pages. That much paper would be useful.
Option 3) A very large blank journal. Recording my own thoughts would be far better than reading the same crap from someone else again and again.
ah yes "Isolated Island Books" one of my favourite radio programmes :D
I'd take a book on how to build a boat. Other than that I'd probably take a dictionary in hopes of leaving the island with the greatest vocabulary ever.
A dictionary sounds...interesting. Instead of one about a boat, how about one that teaches swimming?
Do you mean you're marooned there, or just taking time off away from humanity?
I would take the SAS survival guide. that way i could make a shelter out of my own dandruff.
Hardcover stuff. So you can build things out of them.
