Ann (annrumsey) | 14417 comments Interesting, Lorraine! It sounds like being sequestered on jury duty, time to read, and not allowed free access to reading materials. Only five devices seems like a lot less than they would need per ship.

Barry (barrypz) | 2998 comments We were good with sharing. On a submarine you would pass off the book you were reading every 6 hours, get it back in 12. Our days were 18 hours long, that way we could work more of them. (There was a meal every 6 hours)

Ann (annrumsey) | 14417 comments I think there was a M*A*S*H episode where they passed around the pages of a book the camp was reading. More could read at a time.

Barry (barrypz) | 2998 comments The most popular series I recall back then was Winds of War. Somebody always had the copy, and it was not in good shape by the end of the cruise.
