Libraries on Cruise Ships

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.
