Buried Treasure

I read recently about some kind of religious custom where a person selects what books they'd like to be buried with. Of course, I can't remember what religion this was and I can't find it on google. Either way, I'm posting my top 10 list of books and cd's I'd like to be buried with. With all that stuff in there, the morticians won't have room for my corpse. Oh well... I'll have to live forever!
