linda gresham, at the dock in tacoma, washington

Here you have the main bookshelf as well as an adjunct shelf on our sailboat home. To remain on the shelf a book must prove its value year after year, for there is not a lot of room to keep a dull book. Some are always in transit with us, but others are always trying to find a place of importance. Throughout the boat are scattered so many books trying out for a more permanent place, but sometimes they get left at the thrift shop or library book sale where others are invited for a stay on the lovely "small rain".

PS After a day sailing the books rearrange themselves and must be hardy to survive.
