Based on the BBC radio programme ‘Desert Island Discs’, we’ve adapted this idea to ask castaways to list up to eight books, one song and one luxury item that they couldn’t do without on a desert island.
The rules are fairly simple, any type of book can be selected, but we ask that at least half are lesfic. Choices should be justified in a paragraph or two. Any type of music is allowed. The luxury item must be inanimate and of no use in escaping the island or allowing communication from outside.

My inanimate object choice
Again, I seem to be placing items together and calling it one thing. I’d be dreadful in a real situation of ship abandonment. I’d be one of those passengers still packing their luggage as the room filled up with water. Anyway, my luxury item is an art kit of paper, pencils, sharpener, and eraser. Drawing is my relaxation, and I feel that being plonked on a desert island with little to no warning would be rather stressful. Hence, the drawing.
The idea of being stranded on a desert island makes me twitch slightly. It sounds summery, and my idea of summer awesomeness is 24-hour air-conditioning.
