Post Your Top Three

I did a little searching but did not find this addressed in one place. Maybe I can be redirected or you can just answer here.

What I'd like is "Your Top Three" for the following subjects:

1. Newcomer's Guides to Living Aboard a Sailboat (this shouldn't be technical issues, per se)
2. A Sailor's Essential Library for Sailing (this is more technical; basic repairs, rules of the "road", troubleshooting, mapping, etc.)
3. Fictional or Non-Fiction/Anecdotal Reading
4. Any other subject I should be addressing.

Keep in mind, we have no desire to race sailboats. We went to the library yesterday and found absolutely nothing on living aboard. In fact, most of the available books sort of mention it in passing.

I thank you in advance.
FWFS,
Beth

P.S. A lot of the books they did have available were from pre-70s era, which isn't bad but surely revisable!

My fav book which is about all things sailing is

Sailing Illustrated, by Patrick Royce (the sailor's bible since 1956)

It's got everything you need to know.

Royce's Sailing Illustrated, Sailing Illustrated Series, Patrick M. Royce, Book - Barnes & Noble
