As a bibliofile, that is an almost-impossible question to answer. But say your life depended on it… Planet Earth as we know it is being taken over by some three-headed, beady-eyed alien race or even worse—indestructible zombies! A great way to escape would be into your favorite book, right? Unless of course your favorite book happens to be The Shining or something along those lines. So, instead, pick something you both like and can live through. 🙂
I’d pick The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.
