Desert Reading

They always ask what one book or CD you would want to have with you if stranded on a desert island. This scenario involves a desert peninsula, but the idea is the same. Choose wisely, as it will need to provide for puns as well as reading/listening enjoyment.

    I would choose a basic book on celestial navigation. That should cut the journey time to a month or less. Possibly avoiding those pesky commandments altogether.

    The 11th Commandment, lost while the Israelites were fighting over the tablets, when Moses returned to camp.
    11. On Not Being a Sausage: “Do not be a sausage which is full of useless things.”

    Good reading if on a desert peninsula with angry people.

    From The Teachings of Silvanus. Btw, I like those BBC podcasts.
