rabbit and raccoon tracks...
Firstly, I wouldn't give much credence to what doctors' say about one's life span (son Nate was given 18 mos. with treatment but that was 25yrs ago)...but this is totally not what you are asking so I apologise for getting off on a rabbit chase. Hah!
But, seriously, I would not spend my time reading, other than here on the internet...I would write, look at the sky, write some more, watch the sun set and rise, write some more, watch the birds, write, wade a stream, write. Naw, I don't think anything in any book would relate to the end of my life...except the one I was writing. ;p
There are many books I haven't read...doubt if I will get around to it. I especially love the chapbooks produced by the people here... Those are the ones I want to get to. And I would hope...my journals would be interesting enough to be on their list. It is the closeness, the sharing of the people in my life that matter and would matter to me. I read a bunch when I was young...a bunch! Now, I just make my own story, which I love looking back and reading.
