A pick would be nice too, if it's not too much trouble.

6. DU Of Course

however I doubt it would have internet service sooooo I would have to say a book but which one? I would require one with snappy dialogue to keep me sharp on those long quiet nights when the only thing rustling are the palm fronds.

I'd rather have a fixed wing amphibious aircraft with an aviation GPS and a short wave radio.

43. Satellite phone

just in case the desert island doesn't have service...



And a desalinator so I can stay hydrated while waiting for rescue...



And some MREs to munch on...



And maybe a tent but we're getting down into the luxuries now...



And the big red book...



And maybe a comfy camp chair...

In fact, just open a Starbucks on the island, and I'll be covered!
