The second Wednesday of every Month, Erika and I share three things we would take with us if we were stranded on a deserted island. Last month, we kicked off this linky party with What 3 items from your medicine cabinet would you take? To see my post, click here.
Today, we’re all sharing what three books we would bring with us if we were stranded on a deserted island. Books you would read over and over and over again while you were there.
Now, in my head, I would take the Bible. a book on surviving on a deserted island (I looked on Amazon…they write such books!), and a cookbook on how to cook fish a million different ways. But…since those seem so obvious, I’ll skip them and move on to some other fun ones (just know, I’m hoping my plane goes down on that deserted island with something besides People to read for the rest of my life…)
If I had to take three books that I just enjoy reading (and would want to keep me company while I was deserted), here are my three:
Bread & Wine by Shauna Niequist was the best book I read in 2015 (and I read 63 of them!). This book is encouraging, heart-warming, inspiring, full of vivid imagery and speaks right to my soul. I think I could sit under a palm tree, read this book, close my eyes and feel at home.
Bridget Jones’ Diary is my very favorite movie. Years ago, I read the book, fell in love, saw the movie and fell even more in love. Bridget would keep me company on that island. She would make me laugh and probably, make me not feel quite so sorry for myself.
Well, it’s not the Bible…but it’s close :). Jesus Calling by Sarah Young is my favorite daily devotional. Each day, there is scripture and a little devotional that goes with it. I love this every day right now while I’m cozy at home…so just imagine how much I would love it if I were stuck on a deserted island!
So…my three books: one to make me think of home, one to make me laugh and one to make me think of Christ. Win, win, win.
