"Presidential Courage" by Michael Beschloss, a great great reading about past Presidents who made decisions that cost them re-election or popularity but in the long view of history made the country stronger..I'm sure Laura is reading a chapter a night (VBG)
"Miracle at St. Anna"..a WW2 novel (history based) about 4 African American army soldiers who were befriended by the villagers in Tuscany and how the Germans took revenge on the village by burning the citizens in a church
I'd love to appear "scholarly" and say some great titles but since my second cruise I have not read a book, for personal enjoyment, while on board.
There may be one or two in my wife's or my suitcase, for the plane or airport, but they are never read once we are on the ship. We never have time. There are too many other things to do. I'll reserve my reading and mind expansion for my time on land.

Mike..you don't think we actually read the books do you ? (VBG)..we go by the pool, pick out a well place chair..put on the earphones in your mp3 player..then we wait for a Melody to ask us is the chair next to us occupied and she sits and her opening line is "what are you reading ?"
usually, on a sea day if i am blessed to have a balcony, i start reading but the waves and the relaxation puts me to sleep so i only get to read about 3-5 pages at a time...i do the most reading while i am waiting for my cruisemate to get dressed..i usually read 2-3 chapters that way (VBG)
and of course reading while waiting at the airport
