Ok, so I couldn't resist answering this fun question from YA Highway:
You're packing for a month on a deserted island. What, as a reader and writer, must be in your backpack?
Not in my backpack, but my husband would be coming along with me. This lovely deserted island just wouldn't be paradise without him. With him, it would be. Yeah, so maybe this is supposed to be our getaway alone, but I wouldn't have to be alone to still get a lot of reading and writing done.
Sunscreen. And aloe after sun care. Wouldn't want to spend the time sore and uncomfortable, right?
Swimsuit. We'd be spending a lot of time out in the water.
Some clothes. I'd pack light, but would pack the essentials.
Lots of books. To save space I'd love to bring my Kindle, but I'd have to have a way of charging it and any electronics.
Forget the laptop. Wouldn't want anything to happen to it. So, instead I'd pack a few notebooks and plenty of pens for writing.
IPod. Gotta have my music!
A few assorted snacks for when we need a little something different from fish and coconuts. (Including sweets...thanks, Jen for the idea! Hmm...maybe with all that coconut around there'd be a way to make yummy coconut cookies...)
Ok, that pretty much covers it! I'd love to hear what others would bring.
