Looking for eBooks ?

Some 6 months ago I bought ebookreaders for my wife and me.
I can honestly say it's one of the best things I ever bought.

In the mean time I've collected a nice library using Calibre, in English and in Dutch. If you want to compare libraries and eventually swap ebooks, just send me a PM.

Cheers,
Len.

For some obscure reason I can't send you a PM.
Please try sending me one with an email address (well a desscription of it to avoid spamrobots picking it up) and I'll contact you.

Cheers, Len.

Yes, I am interested in your English booklist. We have also an enormous SF list which we got from a cafe in Phuket and yes, that is where I am, Thailand.
I have a blog http:/blogambernectar.blogspot.com so you can read a bit about us if you like. I am a totally deaf Dutch woman so reading is important to me. regards, Karin de Vaal
Hi Karin,
I also have a large collection of books which I read on my ipad.
We are currently in Tioman and shall be returning to Thailand later in the year.
perhaps we could meet up ?
We, Diane and Alan are aboard S/Y Moonfleet
Kindest regards
alan

Re: Looking for eBooks ?

I could add a fun book just recently published as an ebook, "Days of Deja vu" by Jonathan Reid in which the author and his wife build a 31 foot sailboat in South Africa and the trials, thrills and spills of learning to sail, almost losing the boat off cape Town and the subsequent sail around the world makes for some really cool nail biting reading

"Navigation for the rest of US" ebook from Amazon for Kindle (possibly in other formats).
A good primer/review much more up to date than bowditch. It also covers the use of electronic aids. It is written for the small boat navigator.

Thanks for the heads up. I just sent it to my Kindle.

thanks for the heads up .I just added it to my Kindle. I'm always looking for stories of those out sailing.

Have you read "A speck on the sea"? "Sail"? "A Cure for ANything is Salt Water"?
