On Monday I mentioned Mama Gena's School of Womanly Arts: Using the Power of Pleasure to Have Your Way with the World. I said that it would be one of the ten books I would take with me if indeed I did have to go live on a deserted island. If I were packing for that fated trip today, here are a few other titles I'd take along:
The Sweet Potato Queens' Book of Love: If I'm going to be stranded on a deserted island (wouldn't it be so much nicer to be stranded on a dessert-ed island?), I'll surely be in dire need of some laugh-out-loud comedy. Any book by Jill Conner Browne always does the trick.
Creating Money, Attracting Abundance: I'm a new-age kind of girl, and one of the most thought-provoking books that lives permanently on my nightstand is Creating Money; Attracting Abundance by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer. Its about the Law of Attraction and abundant thinking. There is so much depth to this book, I've been studying it for years. Of course, I probably wouldn't need money on a deserted island, but the principles are universal and apply to just about everything. This duo has written other great books like Spiritual Growth: Being Your Higher Self and Living with Joy: Keys to Personal Power and Spiritual Transformation. Since they're all by the same authors, can three titles count as one?
War and Peace: I have yet to read this 1200-page classic "masterpiece" penned by Leo Tolstoy. I suppose I'd have plenty of time to do so on the island. As an added bonus, the book is so big it would come in handy as a footstool.
I've still got a few more titles before I hit my ten-book limit. And although I have no immediate plans for a retreat to a deserted island, I am looking for a few good titles to read. Any suggestions, dear readers?
