Happy 100th Birthday, Patrick O'Brian!

If Patrick O’Brian were still living, he would turn 100 this month. We’re celebrating the centennial with some sea-worthy books and, of course, O’Brian’s classic Aubrey-Maturin novels, featuring Captain Jack Aubrey and his great friend Stephen Maturin, a naturalist-cum-spy, in their adventures at sea, all set against an impressively-researched backdrop of Lord Nelson's British Navy. The beautifully packaged full set makes an excellent holiday gift! How many have you read?
