The best books to read during Hurricane Sandy

If you're somewhere on the East Coast where Hurricane Sandy has been or still is "visiting" you might be looking for another day inside the house with or without electricity. In any event, you might be looking for ways to entertain yourself and/or your kids until you can finally get outside, and what is better than a good book to help you forget about Sandy? 

Even Gov. Cuomo knows it, asking fellow New Yorkers to "stay home. Be prepared. Enjoy the family. Read a book"

So what are the best books to read during an Hurricane? As Victoria Bekiempis of DNAInfo.com New York noted the best answers came from twitter, where  hashtags like #sandyreads, #hurricanereads, #booksforthestorm, and #stormreads featured a wide variety of printed and electronic picks ranging from Joseph Conrad's "Lord Jim" to E.L. James' "50 Shades" series.

Here are 10 of the latest recommendations:
