What books would our library users save?

During the Big Read event, Pacific Grove Public Library asked readers what book they would save above all others. It was a difficult decision but here are a few of the books our readers took time to vote for:
Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
Waldon Two by B.F. Skinner
Tao te Ching by Lao Tze
Sidhartha by Herman Hesse
Angle of Repose by Wallace Stegner
The Bible
Oxford English Dictionary
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Various works of William Shakespeare
Bleak House by Charles Dickens
Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
Faust by Johann Goethe
The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran
Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers
