One book, apart from the Bible and Shakespeare

At the end of "Desert Island Discs" on BBC Radio it is traditional for the guest to be asked what book they would take with them to their desert island - it is assumed that the Bible and the Complete Works of Shakespeare have already found their way there by some means unknown to science. I have so many books that it is hard to decide which my book would be - possibly one that I have always been meaning to read but have never got round to (Dombey and Son by Charles Dickens fits into this category).or maybe some big thick volume that I could dip into from time and time and always find something interesting - I have a massive "History of the World" that is a possibility. Any ideas?

I might bring a familiar favorite, like Richard Hughes's A High Wind in Jamaica. Or perhaps something I've never read, like...I'm not sure!

@Thehorse What is the High Winds in Jamaica storyline? What genre is it written? Sounds interesting!

If a set of encyclopedias could count as “one book”, I would take the Encyclopedia Brittanica.

@indexer I would probably bring along the book i was reading at the time. I wold hate to be stranded and never get the chance to finish it. I have this thing i have to finish just about every book i begin. II wold hate to spend the rest of my life and if ii was reading a mystery which ii frequently read and not know whodunnit!
