A new weekly feature for Books Bird is coming soon, and here is the idea so you’re ready when it does.
In a post-apocalyptic wasteland, you need to stay in a bunker for safety. You travelled light and therefore have only taken 5 books with you (these we will call your ‘Fallout 5’).
Everyone gets the Bible (or other Religious Text; The Qu’ran, Torah etc. ) and the Complete Works of Shakespeare, which are already in the bunker and do not count as part of your Fallout 5. If you pick a series, each book counts as an individual choice, (the exception to this rule is if there are several stories in one books).
It’s time to hide, which 5 books do you choose?
You’ve been safe in the bunker and you suddenly have to run again, you can only save one of your 5 books, which one will you rescue?
If you want to take part and tell us you Fallout 5 (and provide a short answer regarding why you chose each) and decide which book you’d take if you could only take 1 in an emergency. Email your response to: firstname.lastname@example.org
