One of the things about reading paper newspapers is that a lot of articles get posted online that never end up in in print like this one on libraries on cruise ships.
My grandfather took a ship across the ocean from San Francisco to Korea when he was little boy. His father was a missionary, and made this trip a number of times from the old records. They must have had a glorious library in those days, because the trips were longer.
The ship I went on, Navigator of the Seas, did have a library, but not many books. I suppose that reflects everyone bringing ebooks. I brought my own supplies, but still, I wouldn’t have mind perusing through the shelves.
Sometimes the best finds are by accident.
