Good question! Hard one. So it can only be ONE book? Not a series? I want to say that my first instinct is this book I loved when I was a child. It was called "the piggy in the puddle". However, I'd imagine with it being an "i can read" type childrens book I'd get tired of it really fast. I'd go with, another off the top of my head, A book by Jodi Picoult. I don't know which because I have only read two and I'm about 100 pages from finishing a third. But her books always let you see so many sides of a situation that I think I'd never get bored...at least for a few months. What about you? Since you didn't answer your own question?

i would seriously want to have an empty book with about 600 pages in it and a pen, so i would be the one to fill in stories about my days in the desert or to answer your question, i would bring the life of pi

This is one tough question. If i am trapped in an island my best bet for a book would be the Bible. I can find answers there and gives me inspiration.

If I could only have one book I would definetly chose the Bible. No matter how many times you read it you can feel comfort and learn something new.

I would be hard pressed between two books: Queen's Own by Mercedes Lackey (the entire Arrows of the Queen series in one book) or The Book of Earth by Marjorie B. Kellogg. That would be of course since I couldn't have all five books of the Blending series by Sharon Green, which would be my first choice. I would want something that would help me forget that I was stuck on a desert island.

Would probably be the Magic's Price trilogy (I have it as a 3-in-1 hardback) by Mercedes Lackey. I have read it many, many times. Its the book I read when I am down. It helps me remember that it could be worse.
