Saturday snapshot – Fishing

I took this photo in April 2007 on a trip with the bookboat Epos. Epos is a mobile library on keel instead of on wheels and takes two trips around the county every year. It was great being a book boat librarian a few weeks every year, a different way to see Hordaland county than going on the roads. This is the one part of my old job that I miss in my current job. My dad owned and captained a coastal freight ship, so I grew up seeing the west coast from the sea. Now I look around all I can every time I’m on a ferry.

  4. The water looks so gorgeous in the photo….almost like a painting. Thanks for sharing.


  5. I’ve never heard of a book boat before – it sounds great! I’m wondering how the books were kept dry. πŸ™‚

  6. I love that there are book boats! I had no idea. What was the boat’s name?

  7. Gorgeous shot! And what a cool idea…a book boat.

    Here’s my snapshot:

  8. The boat is called Epos (epic poem) and was build to be a book boat. The books are kept dry indoors, but sometimes fall out of the shelves in really rough weather πŸ™‚ More information on Epos (in English) can be found here:

  9. Now that’s a beautiful view!! How I’d love to live where there was a book boat! Two of my very favorite things, water and books.

  12. Boat book librarian must look great on your CV! πŸ™‚
    What a great way to see the island.

  13. We have bookmobiles in some communities but a book boat takes it to a whole new level. And lovely photo of the sea.
