what I'm reading now
Ten Degrees of Reckoning is a true story of survival at sea. It chronicles a family's adventure of sailing around the world and then the tragedy of shipwreck and the survival of one of its members. It was a very interesting book. It describes what it's like to sail a vessel, navigate with GPS and charts, the hazards of weather and coastlines, and all the other things that are necessary to know in order to safely keep on course. It's also a story about a woman's search for justice after she loses her family at sea when a commercial freighter broadsides them and leaves the area without rendering aid. The book will keep you turning the pages with anticipation.
