If you take a look at the blog entry below, you’ll see that I’ve decided to devote the rest of this summer to the brainless cataloging of hundreds and hundreds of low-end books (i.e. – “cheap”) about every aspect of maritime history. The key to this rather surprising decision lies in “brainless.” I’m taking a gray matter break (though some would assert that I’ve been on that break for decades).
I should add that there’s nothing in the world wrong with any of these books. Aside from the occasional bump or bruise, the information they contain is still worthy of your attention. Indeed, there are countless hours of amusement and instruction available here – and if you should happen to leave your book at the beach or drop it in the water – no worries! We’ve got hundreds more for you.
This first iteration of Beach Reading contains books about the maritime history of the Pacific Northwest, a few on hardhat diving, quite a few on the “Titanic” sinking, and several more pertaining to steamships and ocean liners.
Postage is $5 per book, $3.50 for each extra item. Bulk orders and oversized books will be shipped at cost.
