hmm if i was on a island with only one book id have to pick one of Tolkien's books since ive never read any of his books and all of my friends tell me they are good.

I was just going to say that I'd have a hard time choosing which one of his books to take because I just love them all! If you ever have the time, you really should read them, they're amazing.

If I was to take one book it would have to be the Elfquest graphic novels Shocked because they are the only reading material I read at least once a year and with the same delight. I don't tend to read books several times otherwise.
As for a book mark...on a desert island? Probably a long piece of grass or a dried flower?
I am really looking forward to this swap Smiley

Only one book? How about a "How to survive on a desert island" guide?  Cheesy

LOL that is funny.
Someone asked me one time if I was stuck on an island and could only bring one person who would it be. I said Jesus so he could teach me how to walk home.  Cheesy

I asked the question but forgot to throw my answer out there. I would have to bring Illusions by Richard Bach. I read that book at least once a year and always learn something new. It is also one of those books that are fun to just randomly open to any page and see what it can tell you.

As far as a bookmark...I dogear my pages too.... Shocked Hoping this swap will help me mend my ways as well. Smiley

Okay, I've updated feedback slots and added people to the first page. If you think you're supposed to be on either and you're not, let me know.

Things are lookin' good on my partners spreadsheet!

That is a truly excellent book, I read it for the first time last year, I could definitely see reading that one once a year.
Do you have an opinion about The Alchemist (Paulo Coelho)?

If I had to be shipwrecked on an island with one book...hmmm...the Complete and Unabridged OED?

I'm assuming you mean Oxford English Dictionary. Not a bad pick. I'd take a reference book too. Probably the latest AP Style Guide so that I could have a stack of technically perfect articles and press releases to submit about my experience.

I am looking to do a personal swap with (or will outright pay for) a knitter who could make an adult sized knitted t-rex sweater for Christmas. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

One very good steampunk book is <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Mainspring-Jay-Lake/dp/0765356368/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1280408369&sr=1-1">Mainspring</a> by Jay Lake.  It's steamy  Roll Eyes  Shocked in parts, as well as steampunk, so be warned, but it's very good.  A new one is <a href="http://boingboing.net/2009/09/29/boneshaker-cherie-pr.html">Boneshaker</a> by Cherie Priest  --  I haven't read it yet, but I've heard great things.  There's a nice discussion at <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steampunk">Wikipedia</a> with lots of ideas.
