I read a story about this couple who sold their house and all of their belongings and started to live on their boat. Before the wife would agree though, she required a suitable library to be on the boat. This got me thinking about what I could do in my free time on this live-aboard adventure for a few years! The obvious answer is read!
Just about every time we go to Target, which isn’t really very often, my amazing husband always seems to get me a new book to read! Lugging a whole library of books however doesn’t seem very ideal to have on a boat, primarily for the weight, but also for the potential sogginess that may ensue. Although I am slightly opposed to the idea of kindles since I really enjoy the feeling of holding a book in my hands and the smell and feel of the paper, I do realize the mobility and potential of a kindle or kindle app to outlast books. I have some books that have fallen to pieces which doesn’t happen to digital versions.
I have been trying to find good, inexpensive or free, books through kindle, and have been fairly unsuccessful. Stephen, being the wonderful and understanding, yet sensible husband he is, has decided I can have a $20 allowance for kindle books! This is so exciting for me because I didn’t want to buy any, mostly because I wouldn’t want to limit myself! Who needs to pay utilities and bills when you can have books, right!? Is that just me? Possibly. We do need to save for a boat however! I would love suggestions of books I should add to my collection, as well as comments as to what you do in your spare time, if you have any.
