Rachel Cantor’s Fallout 5:

3. Complete collection by Tolstoy: I’ve read almost no Tolstoy, and would have a lot of time in a bunker to do so. (Amazon UK/ Amazon US)

4. Dickens Collection (5 novels-including Great Expectations) by Charles Dickens: Except if my suitcase is getting heavy, I might not mind leaving A Tale of Two Cities behind, since I didn’t much like it. (Amazon UK/ Amazon US)

5.  A Path with Heart, by Jack Kornfeld: I would also spend a great deal of time in that bunker just sitting, I imagine, so I’d also bring my favorite meditation book. (Amazon UK/ Amazon US)

You Suddenly have to run from the bunker, you can only save one book, which do you rescue?

A Path with Heart, by Jack Kornfeld, is also the book I’d grab when escaping my bunker, if only because it’s light enough that I can carry it and still escape the zombies!
