- Nov 23, 2012I agree. I read "The Great Warbow" or "The Grey Goose Shaft" and other large tomes in my easy chair nest to my archery bookcase. Sometimes I will prop it up on one my dogs in my lap.
However, "The Great Warbow" is well foot noted and has a large bibliography. And is really much more informative and accurate than most "Coffee table books". Though it does have a large number of illustrations.
