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?
Yes, I do browse through manuals of complicated gadgets. I feel a need to know all the stuff I can do with it! But usually I forget it as soon as I read it. I'm still trying to learn how to work my new car stereo... and I know there's tons more I can do with all the cameras and phones we have.
I read some how to books. As others have mentioned, I like craft books, and cook books.. things like that. Very fun.
But self-help stuff? Not so much any more. It seems like I browsed through in them past, but I haven't now for a long time.
