OK, My favorites have to be Sailing Alone Around the World, by Joshua Slocum (talk about how we need electronics to get there and back), and anything by the late Tristan Jones. And for great eye candy, coffee table reading material-- either edition (1983 or 2003) of Ferenc Mate's "The World's Greatest Sailboats." It'll set you back fifty bucks of so, but you'll enjoy it for years and probably have it longer than your current sailboat.
