Booking Through Thursday

Scenario: You’ve just bought some complicated gadget home . . . do you read the accompanying documentation? Or not?

Do you ever read manuals?

How-to books?

Self-help guides?

Anything at all?

I usually at least skim a manual and read the points which are relevant right now. If I can’t make it work, I might even return to the manual later.

I’ve read some gardening books if those count as as how-to books? But now I don’t have a garden and I so I don’t read them. I read the occasional book about writing or teaching dogs but not much else in this category. I don’t think I’ve ever read a self-help book. I didn’t even read any of the recommended books on how to write an MA dissertation.
