I stumbled on this fellow blogger and decided it was an excellent opportunity to fiddle with the "BlogThis!" button. She lists a top 5 books read this month. I'm going to offer a different spin on it. The old, ever popular, if you got stuck on a desert island and could only bring three books, what would they be?
Rule: Series do not count. I've had this argument with my brother. Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, etc are all seperate series, not one, very long novel.
If you like, you may elect to have several groups of three. I'm more interested in why you would choose the three that you did, and how they relate to each other, than the books themselves. Example:
I might choose a scholars book of ancient Hebrew, a copy of the bible in the original Hebrew, and a bartenders guide documenting how to make liquor from only bananas and coconuts. I'll let you all decide for yourselves how they relate.
In another instance, I might just choose my three favorites--Owen Meany, Youth in Revolt, and the Ultimate Hitchhikers Guide (arguably cheating...Just the first if I hear protests).
I've got couple more, but I'll save them for comments.
