Plenty of sailing in these books, I don't know if they manage all of the #SevenSeas #RedRoseSeptember

LeahBergen I just finished book 7 of this series and I would say, yes, they DO sail all the seas! 😆 3mo
CarolynM @LeahBergen I confess I haven't read them, they are my husband's books. I was going to go with Hornblower, but I couldn't find any of them. My library is in such a mess! (edited) 3mo
LeahBergen I really enjoy them. I found the series a bit slow to get into initially but now I‘m very caught up in the characters. 3mo

Cinfhen @CrowCAH thought of you 3mo
Ruthiella Perfect for this prompt. I want very much to be rich so I can quit my job and help you sort out your library! No shade! My own house is in shambles but I am motivated to organize other people‘s stuff. 3mo
arlenefinnigan Nice! 3mo
CarolynM @Ruthiella We are getting more shelving next week, so there will be some work done then. If you win the weekend lottery draw you're welcome to come and help. We have a nice guest bedroom 😉 3mo
CrowCAH @Cinfhen aye, thanks! ⚓️ I‘m just like @LeahBergen and am reading this series; I‘ve read the first four and going to start the fifth one soon. 3mo
CrowCAH Love those book covers; pretty 😍 3mo

“This liquid is technically known as soup, may I ladle you out a measure?”-Aubrey

“It is pleasant enough to see the remnants of peas so aged and worn that even the weevils scorned them and died at their side, so that now we have both predator and prey to nourish us.”-Maturin

Thanks to local libraries I made it through the first 17 volumes of this series without a hitch, but I had to get an interlibrary loan for this one. Only 2.5 books to go.

Love the 'Master and Commander' series and it's always great when the words 'BEAT TO QUARTERS' are heard lol.
