Which book would you take?

If you are looking for the Midsummer's Eve Giveaway Blog hop, that is below this post.

Here in Colorado we are experiencing multiple wildfires burning in different spots simultaneously.  This last weekend several friends had to evacuate their homes, they are back safe today.  

But it raises a question.  If you had to pack for a probable evacuation, would you pack a book?  Which book would it be?  A classic or a simply a favorite, maybe a book with sentimental value?  

What is the first answer that popped into you head?

Now for a recipe that keeps the house cool (record high temperatures here too) by using a slow cooker.  I have not tried this myself, but I stumbled across it and thought I would share it.  I hope to make this soon.

Slow Cooker Cherry Cobbler

    1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup butter, melted
    1/2 cup milk
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Cinnamon to taste


    Coat the inside of your slow cooker with cooking spray. Pour in the cherry pie filling. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Make a well in the center, and pour in the melted butter, milk, and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Spread evenly over the cherry pie filling. Cover, and cook on High for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until a toothpick inserted into the topping comes out clean.

I'm in Colorado too in Loveland. so not too far from the High Park Fire! Not evacuation close but, close enough. I would love to pack a book but too many to choose from and I'm sure my hubby would take it out anyway :(

Well, the Waldo Canyon fire is actually causing evacuations of the west side of Colorado Springs. U.S. Air Force Academy is under pre-evacuation notice. It is getting close to me now. Flying W Ranch, a chuckwagon dinner/show was reported on fire. There is no relief in site.

I hope everyone gets safe.

I would pack my Kindle for sure and probably a favourite book that author, Heath Sommer signed for me.

Glad your friends made it home safely.

In regards to your question, the response that pops in my head is my Bible. That's interesting bc I don't read it nearly as much as I feel I should.

Beyond that, I just have too many options.

Fortunately, the most likely/frequent natural disaster in this area is tornado. That means going to the basement (rather than evacuation), where the majority of my books are currently stored anyway.
