Laura Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea?


message 2: by Jess (new)

Jess Domokos This list NEEDS The Shipping News by E. Annie Proulx!

Caitlín (Ink Mage) Laura and lexical -
Both of you can add more books, you don't have to be a librarian or the list author. Just use the "find/add books to list" box at the top right hand side of the page (underneath the "search lists" box, which is beneath the "find books" box).


message 4: by Jess (new)

Jess Domokos Thank you, Ink Mage!


message 5: by John (new)

John Burns God, it's absurd the number of times someone complains about a book not being here and then doesn't add it themselves.


message 6: by Jess (new)

Jess Domokos I didn't know that was possible :)

I've tried to do it now, but it doesn't seem to have worked...Does it take a while? I'd much prefer to just add the book myself, rather than "complain about it" at all.


message 7: by M. (new)

M. Kei I thought the list was supposed to be novels only, but I see people have been adding non-fiction, too. Maybe the list creator could fix that.


message 8: by Cindy (last edited Jan 23, 2012 07:50PM) (new)

Cindy Yeah, the list is "Nautical NOVEL", so memoirs, non-fiction, autobiographies, etc. do NOT belong on here. About the last half of the list is non-fiction.

Yeah, it's quite annoying! I just spent about 1/2 an hour deleting non-fiction books and I know I still didn't get them all. Grrr.


message 10: by Cindy (new)

Cindy Just removed over 100 books. NOVELS only!


message 11: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Sadly, #1, Secrets of the Realm, is self-pubbed author spam. Author belongs to an Author Circle Jerk and gets her friends and cronies to all vote the book #1.

Caitlin, do you want author spam on the list?


message 13: by Brian (new)

Brian Friesen At the Waterline by Brian K. Friesen - new in 2017 - about a handful of young-to-elderly adults living in sailboats on the Columbia River in Portland, Oregon. Filled with loss, hope, community, and humor.
At the Waterline


message 14: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Flemming I'm very surprised that The Coral Island by R.M. Ballantyne isn't higher on this list!
