I truly believe that I'm missing 2 books about rum. But damned if I can even think of what they are - I just know 2 slots are empty. I am probably missing a couple more that are somehow related to rum.

And yes, I'm a bit of a book hound. Reading is one of my absolute favorite things to do, and I have a few thousand books distributed around the house. I can't count the number of times I ate Mac & Cheese in order to afford a book or two....

Any idea on where to get "Studies On Rum" by Arroyo? I'd love to get a copy of that in English.

Sounds like quite a valuable collectors book. Not recognised on any of the UK online booksellers
