Desert Island

I'm always surprised at the responses when I ask people, "what book would you want with you if you were stranded on a desert island?" People say, "The Great Gatsby" or "Ulysses" or some other equally stupid answer. Are these people serious? The book I would take would be far bigger and more raftlike. Perhaps even have a canopy.

You might have a point, But, I still will take along my trusted copy of Ulysses.

What, exactly, would you trust your copy of Ulysses with?

I would trust it with myself. Not a priest. Not Michael Jackson.

Advice: a simple comma after "bigger" might do wonders.
