Community Spotlight: One Book to read on a Deserted Island

Dear Members,

Welcome to our community spotlight feature*.  This week we chose dantheman1792’s topic asking “What’s the one book you would bring if you were stuck on an island?” An amazing 350 people commented on this topic suggesting lots of books and titles!


Major series books like Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, The Twilight Saga and Hunger Games were popular among the responses.  Here are some other book titles that members suggested:

Nasm19: I would bring The Outsiders

Curveychrissy: I would bring a how to survive on an island alone for dummies book or 50 Shades of Gray

Robbine88: I would bring anything by Nicolas Sparks. He is awesome!!

Mrmess49201: I would bring any of the John Sanford “Prey” books

Sandyibanez95: A Sudoku book with a pencil will always entertain me

Rduke1: I would bring 20,000 Leagues under the Sea without question

Jenpettys: I would bring Charlotte’s Web this is my favorite book and movie when I was younger and still is today

Although this topic was recently closed, we still invite you to take a look over the responses here. You might find a good suggestion for your next read.

Or, it may inspire you to think about other “one things” you would choose to keep with you forever, like it did for us at Toluna.  We started and thinking, and would like to know: “If you had to eat ONE food for the rest of your life, what would it be?”   We’re already receiving a lot of comments, and would love to hear what you think.


We’re excited to hear about all of the delicious foods you choose, and of course a big thank you goes out to our Featured User, dantheman1792, for inspiring this week’s spotlight, as well as, to all of his topic’s contributors for suggesting some new books to read.

See you soon,

The Toluna Team
