Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Check out the upcoming topics to start posting!
This week’s topic is basically your all time favorite, can’t live without ’em books, right? Also the most re-readable I assume, since if I’m stuck on a desert island, that sounds like the perfect chance to read a bunch :D.
- To Sail Beyond The Sunset by Robert Heinlein – This is actually one of the only books that I reread on a regular basis, and suggest to friends pretty religiously. I’ve actually bought it about 5 times now because I give away my copy so frequently in order to make sure people read it :).
- Dune by Frank Herbert – So, Dune is a classic with a lot of depth and intrigue, making it very rereadable. It’s also long, meaning I’m really packing in the punch :D.
- The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson – I haven’t read this one yet, so this would be a wonderful opportunity to read this massive tome! Sanderson also tends to write deviously twisting plots, so it should be very rereadable :D This might bite me in the butt though when I start tying turtles together to get back to civilization to get the next book in the series!
- Guns, Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond – This book is non-fiction and therefore I’m sure I’ve forgotten some of the amazing facts and trains of logic. It’s also about the history of the entire human race and the development of every culture, so my brain feels bigger every time I try to think about it!
- Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid by Douglas Hofstadter – This book is pretty much the king of non-fiction. It is brilliant and overwhelming, but also so clever that it’s actually quite fun to read. It’s more of a project, since I can only manage to read a chapter at a time, and only when I’m not taking classes, but the insights are just so amazing that I’m very determined to get through it someday. I almost wish I could go to a deserted island just to read this book. If you like logic and a deeper understanding of music, language and math, you should read the first chapter of this book and go from there.
