So I was going through storage the other day and I had put away some of my magic books. So I kind of started going through a few of them and realized I had forgotten some of these book and the gems that they contained but I didn't regularly perform. This started me thinking along the lines of:

Knowing what few card books you would bring with you if you were stranded on a dessert island (our absolute favorites), what card books would you bring with you if you were told you were allowed a few more books. Yes, I realize how far fetched this scenario sounds. They may not be our absolute must haves but they still hold a place in our hearts.

Off the top of my head (and also the few books I actually went through in storage)they would be in no particular order:

-The Cardwright by Larry Jennings
-Marlo Without Tears by Jon Racherbaumer
-Don't Blink by James Swain
-Paul Harris The Act by Paul Harris and Michael Ammar released under The Magical Arts Journal

Jennings '67 (I love that era at the Castle.)
Drawing Room Deceptions (Might finally master Reparation.)
Mentalissimo (It's what I'm currently working on.)

Hey @pepka. Jennings '67 is on my list of books to read, but it keeps getting bumped due to the new fad of the month for me. I definitely have to check that one out.

@magicfish, I swear I was so gonna put Randy Wakeman Presents but was thinking it was a little bit obscure. Very clear thinking on classic plots, and how could I for get Impossibilia.

Good stuff;)

OK magic fish, I have never been able to get terribly excited about the Lou Gallo book. Are there any routines in there that might whet my appetite?

For me, I'd bring Mnemonica by Juan Tamariz because the routines included are not the most practical but are some of the most genius out there if one has to time to put in the mental work and memorization. Being on an island should be enough time for that...
