If you're stuck in an island and can read only one book for the rest of your life, which one you'd pick?

Harry Potter series


The Alchemist

If I were  stranded on an island, a library would be a sine qua non. It would have to contain works by:

- Homer
- Ovid
- Herodotus
- Sima Qian

- French classical writers such as Victor Hugo, Baudelaire, Balzac, Maupassant;

- modern U.S. American literature ranging from Frantzen to John Steinbeck to the comics on ww w. gocomics.com
