remetau We converted all our CDs to MP3 and put on a hard drive and an IPOD. We also recently converted our 400+ dvd collection to AVI and put on multiple hard drives (one for tv shows and another for movies). We bought a new media player that plays movies from HDD so we got rid of all our CDs, DVDs and DVD player.

Capttman Assign a colored sticker to each of your storage compartments and cubby holes then in a notebook put a colored sticker on a page followed by the location of the storage compartment and then list the items in that area. When you are looking for something and cant remember where you stored it read your notebook. Now anyone can find any thing and provisions go away with ease.

beachbum2014 Read RV living, van living, camper living groups on the 'Net. Not always applicable to water living but small space and frugal living ideas abound.

I'm cautious of Amazon and the Kindle but I noted that Barnes and Noble has a reader out so I know there are alternatives. Thanks for the suggestion, Sailingdog. I'll be looking into it.

You are absolutely correct, sailingdog. The situations aren't the same. Now, who equated them?

I know I mentioned converting my music to my ipod for the same general reason I have been considering e-books; consolidation of media into one convenient source.

It's the problems around the Kindle that I cited that are making me more careful with regard to e-book readers, for the reasons I mentioned.

I've been really tempted as I have been converting all my music to ipod.

Anyway, this gave me pause...

Why Amazon went Big Brother on some Kindle e-books

So, no matter the reason, I'm not exactly comfortable with them being able to remove my "book" from my "library" like that.

Imagine of Barnes and Noble could walk into your home and remove a book you purchased from them...

I may end up with an e-book but I'll do some more research first.

Until then, unless we are cruising away for years, our local library will serve us well for temporary book ownership.
