Musing Mondays #6

After a couple of days of neglecting the blog due to obsessing over my new high powered computer (<3!) I'm back with a Musing Monday.

This week’s question:

Other than for school, do you read books to learn how to do something? What was/were the topic(s)?

Well, firstly, I’m not in school anymore! 🙂 And when I was in university, my time was really limited, so I didn’t have time to read many books, no matter what they were about.

I guess in general, though, if I want to know how to do something, my first step would be to search it on Google. Information on the internet is free after all, and it’s usually faster just to look up how to do something than to find a book–unless you’re looking for something extremely specific that websites wouldn’t have. Or maybe the information is untrustworthy. If that was the case, I’d go to the library and search for a book that had that topic.

The last non-fiction book I bought for fun was on writing and selling your writing. I don’t mind reading books about that, because there’s so much crap on the internet that doesn’t really go into the depth that I like. So in that case, I would read non-fiction writing books for fun 🙂
