Booking Through Thursday
Following up last week’s question about reading writing/grammar guides, this week, we’re expanding the question….
Scenario: You’ve just bought some complicated gadget home . . . do you read the accompanying documentation? Or not?
Do you ever read manuals?
Anything at all?
When I purchase a household item I always have the manual nearby and most usually I will need it for a reference. What really stinks is when I need it because something not too unusual has happened and I can't find it.
How-to books? Most definitely! I love gardening books, quilting, and knitting. And I'm not sure if this fallis in the "how-to" category but I LOVE cookbooks. This is such a significant problem I force myself to wait at least a day or two before I impulsivly purchase a cookbook. The only exception is if I am out of town. Then I throw budget caution to the wind and buy a local cookbook.
Self Help? No, I am completely hopeless with this genre!
