The wife had a huge library because she reads all of the time. We are selling the home and everything inside so we can move aboard and go cruising. There is not much extra room on a 36' boat, so she has been selling her books to the local 1/2 price books. She bought a Kindle and loves it. I have read one book on it, and it's da bomb! Not saying it is the best one, but suits us well. It certainly makes sense if you want to read while cruising. Check em out.
