OK, I know this won't do a lot of good, but maybe for a few
I constantly see people posting about books here, which ones to
get, where to get them. You'd think they were in about the 3d grade.
Hell, even school kids know about the library.
Don't ask somebody what book you should get. Make up your own
mind. First thing, go to a library, a book store, a used book store,
flea market, anywhere there's books. Look thru the book, see if it's
something you'd be interested enough in to buy. THEN buy it. I get
most of my books from a used book store. They're very inexpensive, and
often in as new condition. It's not unusual to pay $5 for a book that
sellf for $35 at Barnes and Noble, and looks like new.
You want to find a book on the web? First off, you've got a
computer, so you should, I say again SHOULD, know about on-line
searches. But, you'll still ask where you can find whatever. Start
with google. I look up quite a variety and number of books on-line.
Here's a link to a page with some sites I've found very useful in
finding books, and at the lowest prices, on-line. This took me awhile
to come up with these links, so best copy them down fast, because if
some idiot goes out of his way to give me grieft about any dead links or
something, I'll likely change the URL.
And, while we're on the subject, don't e-mail me, I'll e-mail you.
I'm not at all thilled getting e-mail, with a subject line from a thread
on rec.woodworking, but nothing saying it is by e-mail only. Stuff like
that tends to get discarded without being read - after all, if it has a
thread subject line, and nothing saying it is by e-mail only, then it
must be an error, and was posted in the thread also. Right?
Damn winter weather. Suppoed do be down in the 60s tonight. LMAO
