Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by
This Week's Topic is:Krisha: Let me start off by saying that if I was in any kind of survival situation and could only have one person with me, Les Stroud would be the man. I've seen every episode of Survivorman and he is so smart. He understands how the human body works and is very knowledgeable about the world. That being said, I imagine that this book is awesome and I just put it on my Christmas list.
"this brief entry in the Prepare to Survive series blithely shows readers washed up alone on a tropical island how easy it is to find water, build a platform shelter, catch fish (or, failing that, bugs), start a fire, and contact rescuers. The frequent illustrations feature color photos of hunky men and members of the cast of the TV show Survivor, plus occasional simplified diagrams of a solar still, the correct way to escape quicksand, "
Katie: while krisha searches for food ( and ill trust her not to feed me some nightlark) ill search for some plants that reduce swelling, reduce fever... or more importantly ... help deal with our caffine withdrawal headaches we will both suffer from... maybe this island grows coffee beans?!??
Krisha:You never know what might happen on the island. Being somewhat of a pessimist, I'm always thinking of the worst case scenario. Did anyone ever play this board came? I actually thought it was fun.
Katie:... ha ha ha.. still laughing THIS IS MY FAVORITE
Katie: if we aren't going to be rescued, then we will have to rescue ourselves ! given plenty of time, im sure Krisha and I can rig up . The U.S.S Inkk
IM ON A BOAT! seriously ever "deserted island movie" i have seen, the cast aways always make a raft.. and it always FAILS!! not this time !
Krisha: Hola. Me encantan los libros! Katie can speak Spanish and maybe this would be a way to pass the time by me learning it. I took French in school. Maybe I should learn anyway... ¿Habla usted español?
Katie: I haven't read this book yet, but i know the gist of what its about, and I have seen the trailer for the up and comming new movie.. ( which looks awesome )
but LETS GET REAL if this guy can make it on a raft to an island with a FREAKIN TIGER on the boat then im golden !
Krisha: If you've been around this blog much, then you know how much I love this book. I've read it so many times and it just never gets old. If I did start to tire of it, I guess I'd start reading more of the above books.
Katie : I don't re-read books much, but The Book of Lost Things is my favorite book. Not only have i read it about three times, but ive also bought it twice, gave my first copy to a student who needed a good book on her car trip. Not to mention its jam packed with grimm fairy tales in the back. A bonus pack of entertainment!
