Wrack and Ruin

"For whatever reason (say an opressive regime has taken over your country), you find that you have to cut and run, leaving most everything behind to live on the lam for awhile.
After packing all the essentials (You packed a flashlight, right? Double check), you find that you have room for 7 or 8 books.
You have 5 minutes to select the books to take."

Project: spend 5 minutes and grab 7 or 8 books (big books take up more space) from your home (or work) library. These books must actually be in your collection at the time of the excercise. Stack them up, take a digital photo, post it on your website/blog, and trackback this entry or post a comment to this entry with a link to it.

Wonder Boy selected . . .

The Andy Warhol Diaries edited by Pat Hackett
Sade- A Biography by Maurice Lever
The 120 Days of Sodom and Other Writings by the Marquis De Sade
Justine (or Good Conduct Well Chastized), Philosophy in the Bedroom, and Other Writings by the Marquis De Sade
Juliette (or Vice Amply Rewarded) by the Marquis De Sade
I only picked 5 because the books I chose are pretty thick. (Justine, the slimmest of the books, has 1098 pages!)
As you can see, I have a fondness for the Marquis De Sade. The philosohy he presents in virtually every work of his is facinating, and his books and stories are full of every kind of sex you can imagine. It's very erotic reading.
(I'm not into S&M, though, so don't get the wrong idea!)
