Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I’d Want on a Deserted Island

As always, TTT is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic: Top Ten Books I’d Want on a Deserted Island. One caveat: if I could have all these books in French (which I can read, though slowly) so much the better. Ten books will last me a lot longer that way!

1) Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche

-Might actually finish this one.

2) War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy

-And this time I’ll read all the war parts, not just the peace ones…

3) IQ84 by Haruki Murakami

-It’s just so long…

4) Ulysses by James Joyce

-Maybe I can parse this apart with unlimited reading time.

5) One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

-Kind of appropriate…

6) The Divine Comedy by Dante Aligheri

-One of those books I want to read, but sure I never will

7) Paradise Lost by John Milton

-Same. Though I enjoyed the excerpted sections I read. Just kind of intense.

8) Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

-I always forget I want to read this.

9) Don Quixote

-Read this in high school. Felt like it took my whole life.

10) Les Miserables by Victor Hugo

-I STILL really need to read this.
