This is what my Ideal Bookshelf looks like. Being the ginormous book nerd that I am, I considered all my choices carefully, as if I truly faced an apocalypse in which I could only escape with ten books. And I didn’t even cheat and add more, which I totally considered.
So, if the Mayans were right and we all have to escape into underground bunkers with one box for our books, I’ll take these. Although I must say, I won’t be too happy about lugging said box around; Casual Vacancy, People’s History and Brave Story are pretty hefty. But at least they’ll keep me busy while we rebuild civilization.
