Sunday Salon: Savings Books from Hypothetical Fires

In last week's Sunday Salon post, I asked readers to comment me with the titles of books they would save from a fire. Thanks to the many bloggers who took the time to respond. As promised, here is the list of books worth saving from a fiery doom:

Double Vote Getters
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (2 votes)
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (2 votes)
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald (2 votes)

Single Vote Getters
The Collected Words of William Shakespeare
Journals of Virgina Woolf
Poems by Maya Angelou

The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Silas Marner by George Eliot
Light in August by William Faulkner
The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis
One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

See something missing from the list? It's never too late to participate. Leave your save-from-the-fire book titles in my comments, and I will happily add them.
