Booking Thru Thursday (2 of 2)


Today's Question:
What’s the most useful book you’ve ever read? And, why?
  This is a tough question for me.  I don't read self help or how to books.  So the only books I can think of are my text books from college.  Reading them, and of course the classes that I attended, helped me for when I had to take my state license test.  So the answer is college text books.

You are right, of course. I just can't remember any of my college text books. Or my law school text books, for that matter. :)

Here is my answer on Rose City Reader.

I guess that there are lots of different forms of usefulness... it is obviously useful if a book enables one to pass an exam

But - a book is also useful if it opens to the door to another genre of literature which is new to you - for example, when I read Gabriel Garcia Marquez' One Hundred Years of Solitude, I have never before read any magical realism - so for me this was a really useful book because it was so revealatory....

Lovely idea for a meme question -

Thanks for sharing

It would be impossible to name just one book!
