This has been an interesting year (in the sense of the Chinese curse "May you live in interesting times"), so I haven't read as many books as I usually do. But I have read and reread some, and I submit them for your consideration. 1. Boating nonfiction

 

 

 

 

2. Seagoing fiction

 

 

 

3. World War II

 

 

We learn from history or repeat its lessons. Enjoy reading.
