I also love to read on sea days. Here are a few of my favorite "cruise reads."
I like light, frothy reading while I'm on vacation. The book I always pack for a cruise is "How Stella Got Her Groove Back" by Terry McMillan. I love the tropical setting and laid-back writing style.
Then there's "If I Were Not Upon The Sea" by Joyce Adamidis. She's an American who is the wife of the captain of the Celebrity Millennium. A little personal at times, but it gives you an interesting view into behind-the-scenes life on a cruise ship. I bought it on board the Millennium, but I think you can get it directly from the author if you're stuck on land. Unfortunately I don't have the contact information with me at the moment, but if anybody's interested I'll post it later.
And of course, one would be amiss without mentioning "Cruise Control" by a certain Pam Kane. It's a good thing I'm not cruising soon, because I lent my copy to my future mother-in-law a few months ago and it hasn't been returned yet.

Now Me. I don't have time to read onboard a cruise ship. I am too busy doing the other things that are offered. I don't cruise to read books. I can do that at home. But I am not saying that reading is bad. Books are fine and wonderful. Without books we would be in trouble. But the timing is not for me. I go on cruises to enjoy my surroundings. Good thoughts though Jennifer. Different opinions are what makes the world go around. Saying "If things get any better, I may have to hire someone to help me enjoy it".
