Probably my most favourite book is "An Island to Oneself" by Tom Neale.

I even visited the Cook Islands because of it. You get a real sense of how wonderful the simple life is without all the complexity of modern life.

I guess Im an islomaniac.

Tynan you may not be aware of this but there is actually a word for this. You are an "islomaniac". Highly recommend this book which is a true story about what Id consider to be the ultimate islomaniac:-

An Island To Oneself by Tom Neale

Probably one of my favourite books actually.
