I'm glad Magnus said that, about the paperbacks being so big. My sense was that the Capes weren't that thick, but not having Puffins to measure against, I decided I must be delusional. The Capes aren't that much thicker than the Godines --and hardbacks are so much nicer!

This is embarassing: I have both a Kindle and a Nook (I use them to test-run different formats of my own writing) and didn't even think of them. Which tells you what I think of them as a reading experience!

Are the ARs available as ebooks? I know they weren't for quite a while.

I don't currently have a solar set-up, but it's on my wish list, so I can keep the computer charged and, thus, keep writing while I'm out sailing. Maybe, if I do get set up that way, an e-reader would be the most practical option, even if it doesn't have the same appeal as a real book.

Nah. When I'm fog-bound, I want a book.

And I agree with Mike Dennis, that sometimes it's good to make a choice and limit selections. The ones I listed are my favorites; the companions I'd want along on a cruise.

Using my sister as a lending library is a clever idea, but I'd rather be self-contained, and not bound to visiting any given port.

Again, thank you all.
