I love books. I always have. With determination and research you can do almost anything. My experience thus far in sailing is proof of this theory because I came from ground zero when it comes to knowledge of boat systems. I'm now flying high, at least 1/64 inch above ground zero!
When it comes to sailing, there are a few categories of literature I consume. The bulk of my reading has been from the Boat Systems and DIY category. Then there's seamanship books which I really enjoy, but haven't had time to really dig into yet. Sailing stories are another category I have a few victories in. Finally, magazines tend to transcend all categories, but they are small and cheap, so I'll give them their own category.
As stated in the Tools section of this site, I'm insanely busy right now refitting my boat, so I don't expect to be writing book reviews any time soon. What I will do in the interim is make note of the literature that deserves some writing...
