Did I mention I'm going to China?
Well, I am. I hope you're not the last to know.
In any case, there are many preparations to make, desperate requests to issue, Chinese characters to learn, Pesach supplies to jerry-rig, etc., etc.
What comes to mind now is that I have to leave my books behind, or at least most of them.
For now, one simple question: if you could only bring five books on a trip abroad, what would they be? Feel free to tailor the question to you. (If you're an observant Jew, please answer this question: which five seforim would you take on a trip abroad?)
Please leave answers in the comments, or train a eagle to fly over the frozen avenues of Manhattan and tap its beak on my window in code.
