Re: Keeping track of recipes ...

Dsullyec1, thanx for your concern, no, it was fresh water. That makes the fix important, rather than urgent.

We seem much alike, I also enjoy cookbooks that show a bit of their "history," wine spills, oil spatters and all. Granted, I don't have many cookbooks any more, get most of my recipe inspirations online. My regular go-tos, though, are all paper.

As for the tech stuff, I've found that for recreational reading, novels and the like, can't beat a Nook/Kindle. Moving aboard, you suddenly realize that the books you have with you, are all you have. Once you've read them, then what? Books, along with cooking condiments, souvenir t-shirts, and a few other items, are a few of the categories of possessions that seem to multiply and gradually accumulate through your life, no matter how careful you are. x10 when you're living in a small space like a boat. So, space alone seems to dictate that some of your books are either given away when you've finished them, or stored in electronic format to conserve space. We've only got so many shelves and they're mostly filled with boat reference books. Paper books are quite subject to mold aboard. Plus, we can get e-books from our library wherever we are, whatever port we're in that has signal. LOVE it.
