The Book Guy and Appleby Arts
The Book Guy
Who said, everything I ever learned, I learned from a book? I can't find that quotation in my Oxford Book of Quotations, but it's probably there. It's likely my interpretation is wrong.
My point is, one probably could learn almost everything they need or want to learn from a book. Why don't we?
For the computer generation (a flexible range these days) it's obvious. Everything we need to learn can be found in a database somewhere on the Web. I would not argue this point with someone who is disagreeable, because what we read and what we learn is akin to beauty - we learn what we want to learn, we read what we want to read.
I agree, a computer provides a mountain of information. I use it for the content it provides, but I can't sit with it in my favorite chair, if my favorite chair is not in front of it, or lay on the couch if the computer is not in the living room and finally, I can't take it in the bathroom. (For you Seinfeld watchers, I never take a book back anyway).
I am not an avid whole book reader, nor an avid fiction reader. Where my fiction book completions, number in the mere dozens, there are many people who read literally hundreds of books, and I am sure those who have read in the thousands (depending upon their age).
Without having read research reports, on the computer or in a book, I would venture to say few fiction readers would sit in front of the computer reading the "Great American Novel." But I do agree, the best place for research is through your computer to www.
With all that said, I will have my web site developed shortly. You may search several thousand books located right here in BC. The business name will still be First Edition the phone number will remain 293-4916 and the web site address will remain www.bouldercitybooks.com if I stay lucky.
When it's possible I still order books for people and lately, it has been possible. I thank you for your business.
