I’d love your input.  If you could only take three books with you, which would you choose?

Keep in mind the purpose of the books is relaxation and escapism, so great reads tho they be, no Shakespeare, Rumi or Trungpa please.  I’m looking for escapist fiction of the highest order, anything from Stephen King to Ken Follet.  Even a good biography, like “a million little pieces” has potential.  I’ve already read Shantaram.  If you haven’t, do.

Hmmm, in the tradition of some of my closest online friendships, maybe I’ll start a list of books to read.  But that comes later.  I only figured out how to add a blogroll a few hours ago.
