Books for a blizzard....

How are all of you, after the Monster Blizzard?  We're in the Midwest, and had a ton of snow and up to 50mph winds, so the drifts are  amazing.  Between the house and our horse barn there were stretches of drifts almost up to my hips.  Until we got things plowed out, making it the barn and back was a challenge!  But it was all beautiful, too--everything blanketed in pristine white.    And this time, we didn't even lose our electricity!  It happens quite a lot, out in the country, but I just kept on chugging at the computer,  making progress on my current manuscript, and then took some time to just sit and enjoy watching the weather.   
And that got me thinking about a question for all of you.   If you knew you were going to be stranded somewhere for a few days and could bring five books along, what titles would they be?

That is a really hard question to answer. The first book is a given: my Bible. The second book is the one I'm working through for devotions: Praying the Names of God by Spangler. The third one is Bested Loved Poems of the American People, poetry is never a bad choice. The fourth one is C.S. Lewis's Mere Christianity. The fifth one is my 4-in-1 volume of Janette Oke's Canadian West Saga.

Wow, great question. And a tough one too. I agree, the Bible is a given. But if I'm snowbound, I'd want to take advantage and relax.
I guess I'd want a fav from my Keeper Regency Shelf -"The Devil's Delilah" by Loretta Chase or "Emily and the Dark Angel" by Jo Beverly or "Give all to Love" by Patricia Veryan.

I still haven't read "The House" by Tedd Dekker & Frank Peretti - so I'd take that with me.

Linda Goodnight's "Snow Kissed Bride" would be perfect in a blizzard book.

And the last book would have to be Audra Harder's debut "Rocky Mountain Hero" - since I just ordered it and can't wait read it!
