For her 45th birthday, my cousin asked us not to buy her any presents. Rather, she’d like book and music recommendations. What would we want with us if we were stranded on a desert isle? I could not choose just one of either, and certainly didn’t want to just give her a list. So I wrote her a poem. I don’t think she’ll mind if I share it here.
To a desert isle I’d bring,
Music that would make my soul sing.
So many books, its harder to choose,
Too many titles I’d be loathe to lose.
The Book Thief,
Cloud Atlas and more,
would help transcend any lonely shore.
What books and music would you want to have with you?
