I would take:

(1) "Skinny Legs And All" by Tom Robbins
It is my favorite book of all time and I've only read it twice so far

(2) "Finnegan's Wake" by James Joyce
I've never had the time or courage to try it, yet

(3) "Robinson Crusoe"
Hey, I'm on a desert island

(4) "U.S. Army Field Survival Manual"
Hey, I'm on a desert island

(5) "Stranger in a Strange Land" by Robert Heinlein,
I've been meaning to reread it for about the last 15 years and I haven't gotten to it yet.

You're right, it does get harder
(6) "Tao, the Watercourse Way" by Alan Watts and ?
It was the right book at the right time years ago, I got to keep it around

(7) "Desolation Angels" by Jack Kerouac
One of those books that either sings to you or you want to toss out the window. It sang to me the one time I read it.

(8) "War and Peace" or "Moby Dick" just because they are big fat books that would take a long time to read.

(9) "The Complete Sherlock Holmes" by A. Conan Doyle
The only mystery stories that are worth re-reading

(10) A Complete Unabridged Dictionary
It's got all the other books in it if you read it in the right order
