Many thanks, again, to Tom Clifton KC0VSJ for his mention on QRP-L about the audiobook, "The Brighton Boys in the Radio Service", which I mentioned a few days ago.
I downloaded the file and have burned the book to a few CDs which I have been playing in the car on the trip to and from work; and I have been enjoying it immensely! It's definitely an old book; as you can easily tell from the way it is written. When was the last time you read a book that referred to the main characters as "lads" and "chums"? But nevertheless, the book is a hoot and a great "listen". The commute the past few days has gone quicker than ever; and I'm not referring to the volume of traffic or my speed of travel.
So far in the first six chapters, there have even been a few instances where Morse Code has actually been heard while being referenced in the story. The fact that radio and telegraphy play a major part in the story are a definite plus.
I will have to search the Internet to see if I can find any instances of books that feature radio or telegraphy as part of the plot. If I find any, I will surely post them here. If you know of any, please don't hesitate to share!
By the way, I noticed that Librivox has a few Tom Swift books by Victor Appleton in their "inventory". I'm going to have to investigate those - ahhhhhh, boyhood memories!
