One of the joys of cruising, is the
opportunity to read! No matter how or what you read, it's better at
anchor, floating on a sea of possibilities! If you have seen our DVD,
we talked about this.
We will ONLY recommend books that we carry aboard, use, and/or enjoy!
Recently we bought 2 E-Book readers. Jill bought the Sony PRS-505 about a year ago and has been using it long enough to give a good user overview. I have just purchased the new Barns and Noble, Nook, and will try to provide a few words about it.
|NOTE: In keeping with honesty, if you click on the book photo, you will be taken to a place you may purchase the book. If you do decide to purchase it from that link, we get a few cents from the sale. It helps the cruising kitty, we wanted to be honest with you.|
A MUST read.

We have to say that as long as we have had this book on board, we have not had to use it. We hope to keep it that way, but we still think it's worth keeping handy.
by Benjamin Dutton, Thomas J. Cutler (Revised by)
If you are going to be cruising in the San Francisco Bay area, this is a MUST have book. I know the cost of it seemes high, but it is well worth it!
On more than one occasion it proved VERY valuable when we were entering a new to us marina and the voice on the VHF said something like, “Oh ya, it's slip 234 on F dock”, and we had no idea of the layout!
