What are you planning to read next? That is a very important question in your own personal development, even in the world supported by the Internet.

Nothing Like Knowledge

One of the favourite things in my life is the acquisition of knowledge. In days of old this was all through books; today on the other hand we can gain knowledge through a variety of channels. Books are simply only one of the sources and we probably use the Internet more than ever before.

Part of the theme of this series if about the importance of building your knowledge:

The importance of building knowledge cannot be understated.

Re-Discover the Bookstore

It is important every once in a while to re-discover the value of books. Take some time at your local bookstore. I know that there are plenty of people that suggest that we can purchase books cheaper through on-line stores like Amazon. One aspect about visiting a book-store is the ability to sample and browse from all the material that is available.

Browsing itself has a positive impact. In part it activates the critique senses; but it also allows us to experience a multitude of choices - which is certainly important before making a final decision. I remember spending many hours browsing through the bookstore and coming out with a multitude of opinions resonating in the brain. That is something you do not get when browsing on-line.

What Will You Be Reading?

If you want to improve your understanding of a particular subject then browsing will certainly assist. Do not rely upon other people's opinion of what is being offered, make up you own mind; use your own selection criteria.

What will you be reading next?

Hmmm... that can be a tough decision. Yet I have found a lot of value in browsing and I have rarely come away with a book I do not like; something that cannot be said for on-line choices. Even if you do not make the purchase today schedule some time at your local book store.

Peter, I try to read two books a month. A novel and a Biography/Make Money/Inspirational book. I find if I have several different reading materials on the go, the grey matter works a little more efficiently.

You are so right about sparking the grey matter.

Peter, join us. Our stats bogged down. A waste of writing time when people's views worldwide aren't recorded. It's up to you, though, thanks, our friend!

How do you mean, Buzz.? Do you think there is some censorship going on somewhere?

Yes, a little. To cover up ....something, and you know it.

I don't think there is a cover up. Someone changed something in the coding and they need to fix it is all.

Thank you, Peter. I love bookshops and go as often as I can to Barnes & Noble and Borders.
I have so many books around here that I just pick one off the shelves.

As a "shareholder" with 67c in, I would like to know ...........whatever! Also, Buzz, why did you say, "Night?", are you going to bed now in the middle of a crisis?

Honestly, Peter, I don't know about checking statistics. I just notice that my little nutman has not moved for a long time. I did ask one time if maybe he had caught his foot in those little spikes.

OK - I have not thought about looking at him, but it has moved since starting this series at the beginning of the year.
