I watched this movie last night. At the end, the shelf on George's library is missing three books he took into the future to rebuild a human civilization that had [will] become dull. His friend and housekeeper wonder which books George took, and they ponder which three would they take?
This is quaint in that today, we would take thirty one terabyte thumb drives with us, in which we could fill the entire library of congress onto them.
It is fascinating to consider - which three books if you were going to build a human civilization almost from scratch? Here are my choices[from an infinite others] choices:
Herbert Wells - Time Machine
there is also a self-titled movie based on the book)
