Years ago, while I was in Antigua with my family, disaster struck. I ran out of good books. This was before the age of Kindle, so I didn’t have the download option, but even if I’d had it, books via pixels aren’t for me. I need the real thing: a solid slab that I can hold in my hands. And now I was looking at six days in the tropics without a single decent book and nothing but sand and sea and endless food on the horizon.
