If you don't finish the book, I mean. Well, you can make up the ending. No, I mean it; I had a relative, dearly departed, who did just that. It was always a happy ending. How good is that.
Ok, that's it. I'll be packing books. HAL has fantastic libraries, as does the city I live in, so I was hoping. It was time for a new Kate Spade bag anyway.
Thanks for your help.
My worry would be not to finish the book, accidentally get it ruined, etc.I have never used the library, but have enjoyed the space...I have a kindle as well, but still bring a book along, for the beginning and end of the flight...
Trip, with her book & tea!

Accidently I discovered that the first thing you should do is run to the ships library and pick up a few books, otherwise the shelves are cleaned off..What happens is that slowly the most popular books are returned.. I do bring a crossword puzzle book. This might sound tacky, but I enjoy the Readers Digest Condensed books because you can read a few stories and then not feel guilty about not finishing them. On the Pacific Princess last y ear we discovered the most up to date library..even had a book that had just been published that we had ordered.. The NCL Gem had a library only opened when there was somebody there to check y ou in and out and the facility was in a very inconvenient spot. Celebrity had two story libraries mid-ship..and I just love their daily crossword puzzle.. Mostly lounging around I love to people watch..so between my crossword puzzles and condensed stories.. Im in business.
Just wondering. Trying to figure out how much reading material I need to bring. Thanks in advance.
Celebrity's ships have fairly large libraries with a varied selection of books. On the ships of the Celebrity Millennium class, they are two-level affairs. I think that they stock them with used books, so they often have a wide variety of literature that often included titles that are no longer readily available. They also have a decent reference section.
And in 13 Celebrity cruises, I have yet to find the shelves depleted to any significant degree. Certainly you'll be able to find some works that intrigue you!
