I don't read much... but I kinda did in the past... so one of them would have to be Santa Paws! ... I love doggies... so probably any cool book with dogs in them... that don't die would be nice :P
Aww. I hate when pets die in books.:(
I haven't read Santa Paws. I'll keepan eye out for it. :)
Wouldn't they be catboys, not cowboys?
LOL. Why yes. Yes it would!
I want those camels!
Oh dear, that is extremely tough.

What I mean to say is... good choices. *does the golf clap*
I've never actually read it in it's entirety. Jabberwocky of course and bits and peices here and there. I will read it all one day. I'm gonna work all through my classics once the last Harry Potter is out, and the next Kushiuel, and when I can finally finish Son of A Witch... I just can't getinto it,so all my other ones areon hold until afterthis summer. ClassicshereI come then, though.
And Spacebar MUST DIE.
In the Medieval days portable libraries were not uncommon among the wealthy. The libraries were in a case that opened up to show the listing of books under the lid. The case was usually painted or covered with leather and had the same design as the books within. I googled for a picture but only came up with this for a portable library
That picture kicked my ass. I was expecting a random little like drawing from some 80's book... I was not expecting that. Heh. Thanks for that. :)
I can give you the exact list because I did that trick. I hauled them across two continents and an ocean.
Reading Lolita in Tehran
Uppity Women of Medieval Times
Touch, by Gayleen Froese
Short Term Adventures (it's a book about jobs you can get around the world)
Working Your Way Around the World
Eleanor of Aquitaine
The Man of his Word series (it's four books)
In a Sunburned Country (which is about Australia)
Yup... that's about what I brought, plus various guide books.
I'm so glad there are bookstores in Australia. ;)
was an interesting book.
I'm more of a Bookcrossing
sort myself, since traveling with books can make one's luggage quite heavy, especially when you have musical instruments to carry, too.
My books would be:
She's Come Undone
In Her Shoes
Good In Bed
Ha ha ha I am such a girl!!
I am missing one, its about a girl who is murdered & looks down on her family members, the person who killed her & her friends from Heaven.
I cannot remember what it is called....
I need only one book:
Velocities by Stephen Dobyns
It is new and perfect every time I read it.
It had been with me around Europe, the US and anywhere I travel.
I went to Seattle last weekend; a few days before leaving I realized my book was packed. I tore through boxes for hours to find it.
"the sea repeats your name to the desireless sand"
Never even heard of it. I'll keep an eye out for it.
The Neverending Story by Michael Ende.
I will never get sick of that book, it is the quintessential fantasy novel.
We've all seen the movie...but, the movie ends less than halfway through the book. SO MUCH happens after that, I think all of you should check it out.
I really need to readthat. I need to read that and The Princess Bride. And soooo many other books.
"The Count of Monte Cristo"
"Pyrates" by George MacDonald Fraser
"The Princess Bride"
"The Compleate Marquis de Sade"
"Harry Potter" series. *blushes* i couldn't live without him!
"Enduring Love" by Ian McEwan
When i move... the books are going to take some time to pack.
My books would be...
All the Harry Potter books. God... that may take up the whole backpack.
The Shopaholic series.
Anything by Nicholas Sparks which includes the Notebook, a Walk to Remember, at First Sight.
Artemis Fowl books.
The Master and Margarita
The Chronicles of Narnia
The Lord of the Rings
Brave New World
I have almost all of those... And haven't read them. I am the suck. I must get on that.
The Purpose Driven Life
Many different Rick Steves travel books
Oooh! I want a French/English one in mine. :)
1) east of eden
2) east of eden (incase the first one falls in the ocean or gets eaten by a dragon)
3) heart of darkness
4) something shakespeare (because there are so many details it never gets old)
...i feel sad that there aren't more books that i have fallen in love with
Have you seen the Jane Seymour version of East of Eden? I haven't thought of that in years. Used to watch it with my Mom all the time. I need to see if I can find it anywhere.
That said, Yay Steinbeck!
What's Heart of Darkness? It sounds like somethingI totally know but just can't place right now.
And absolutely. I'd bring a complete Shakespeare collection. They come all in one huge book with iiiiiiiitty bitty writing.
I would have to take my Lord of the Rings books and probably my Harry Potter books. Can't get enough. :)
You'd still have room in your bag! :)

The first four in the Dark Tower series by Stephen King
