I’m just after ordering 3 books from amazon. The irony is i hate books – hate them with a passion. With a book, you can’t filter out all the crap like you can in a newspaper or online ebook…. there’s no linking structure as such – no colour or beauty in the design of a book. If i watch a film, i lose 2 hours of my time. If i read the book the film was based on i might lose 10 times that. Is it worth it? No as the film gives me the general plot. That’s all i need. I don’t need the description ‘showboating’ that pads out books.
- PHP and MySQL Web Development All-in-one Desk Reference for Dummies
- Photoshop CS4 for Dummies (For Dummies (Computers))
The reason i’ve ordered these 3 is because i’m interested in them all and i know they’ll pay for themselves easily over time (provided i read them all). They’ll also act as a productive time filler when wireless goes down at college or when i’m on a bus or something…
Anyway, these books should arrive next week and i’ll dive straight in to them.
