Book list for lonely sailing

Which book do you take to a lonely island?

Well here it comes to a topic in german language as I read most of the books in german language. So sorry that there will be no title translation.

I do not want to know how many times this question has been asked, but always a nice “Nachdenkanlass”.

You have your favorite books. True, but where is an entertainment value, if I have read something already 5 times. So the list is also about learning and re-discovering and sure – I do not want to part with some books anymore. I have downloaded all reference works such as books about fish and birds digitally. I have sorted out all the books I have read more than 5 times and everything that appears in the mare Verlag always seems like a treasure to me and I try to put it in the book box.
