I have concluded that I need to install a shelving that will accomadate 2-3 feet of books somewhere in the Trade Wind. One thought is behind the gaucho, another is at the end of the kitchen cabnets, and the third idea is to put it on the dresser in the bedroom. Any ideas on this would certainly be welcome as I need a better solution for this than the current box under the bunk and books everywhere method I am using. Extra points given for pictures

I'd sure think glass fronted barristers cabinets, or equivelent sailboat-yacht look-alike designs, both places that had to keep their books safe from humidity and bugs. Just a few days of 99% humidity will make most books start to look like the summer rental beach house library...

I'm not sure how of the layout in your AS, but in our Bambi I installed a shelf at each of the places that the upper cabinets come to a corner. There is a 12"-14" space where there are no doors and where no doors open into. I also installed a book shelf along the edge of the topper we use with our Avalanche when we travel. In total these give us about 4' of bookshelf. We also carry a box of books and swap them out for those on the shelves when we've finished reading the shelved books.
Also, not to get too far off track, but my wife and I like to visit used bookstores as we travel across the country. We subscribed to the following, and found the software useful for finding out-of-the-way bookstore. Not all the bookstores it lists are still in business so we try to call first, but many are and many of those we would never find without the software and a good GPS. Its kind of like treasure hunting. Just thought you might be interested.
