Jamie Hoang’s Fallout 5:
1. Catcher in the Rye by J. Salinger: This book changed my life in high school. It taught me that being wrong and living outside of societies norms can be enriching. I’d keep it around to remind myself to push boundaries. (Amazon UK/ Amazon US)
2. Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom: There are so many life lessons in this book and it’s such a feel good read that I could read it over and over and still discover new lessons every time. (Amazon UK/ Amazon US)
3. The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein: There’s a reason dogs are man’s best friend and in an apocalyptic scenario this book is about as close to having a dog friend with me. (Amazon UK/ Amazon US)
5. The Dictionary: All books are merely an arrangement of words taken from the dictionary. So This book would provide endless amounts of stories as long as I keep my imagination open. (Amazon UK/ Amazon US)
You Suddenly have to run from the bunker, you can only save one book, which do you rescue?
On the run, and only able to take one book with me I’d take the dictionary. I am forever learning and am confident that with the help of the dictionary I can come up with enough stories to last me a lifetime.
