The details for this challenge are here:
I'm aiming high and going for the rank of Admiral and for that you have to read four seafaring themed books before January 31st. 2008. My pool of seven books are as follows:
Whale Road by Robert Low
Temeraire by Naomi Novik
The Lycian Shore by Freya Stark (non-fiction)
Journey to the Sea (anthology) edited by Sarah Brown
I haven't added links as I don't have time at the moment but will do so later.
