Summer and sailing, they go together like peanut butter and jelly!
For this Maxi Challenge, read at least one book that has a sailing term in the title, or ship on the cover.
Some examples- Pirate, Latitude, Longitude, Compass, Sea, Spyglass.
This Maxi Challenge will run until the first day of Autumn, September 20.

Sonia | 430 comments This is an excellent excuse to read more of my husband's extensive collection of naval historical fiction of the Napoleonic era. I will start with Caribbee.

Sam F | 198 comments I just finished The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman - does it work given the oceans theme? :)

I just finished Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys, a moving story about the plight of the refugees at the end of World War 2 and the torpedoing of a German rescue ship filled mainly with women, children and wounded soldiers.
The story is told by various narrators and is very engrossing.

Yes, plus the first three books each stand on their own really well.

I changed my book to Robinson Crusoe, as it is still about sailing to an extent LOL

Sailing. Crashing. Getting back in a boat. Crashing again. Poor RC. At least his ego wasn't damaged.

I'm with you, Jenny. I'm going with Robinson Crusoe for this challenge. :D
