Monday Memes

Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading 

Today's question:
Other than for school, do you read books to learn how to do something? What was/were the topic(s)?
My answer:
Hmm..I'm finding this question a bit tricky for me to answer.   I may read a recipe from a cookbook but not read the entire book so does that count?  Or I have read the small    booklet that came with my new phone, and I mean small, to learn about all the gadgets, which btw, the booklet didn't help.  So am not sure if that counts.  And I just received a book on Digital Photography, which I do plan to read because I love looking at all the pictures on everyone's site and want to learn how to do it.  But other than that, I guess my answer would be no.

November is being hosted by Holly from Wonders and Marvels
Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour.

According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

I rely on my kids to help me with gadgets rather than read the booklet! They can teach me quicker. ;o)

A Whisper to Scream looks good.

The book I read this year to help me learn something was when my brother had a massive stroke and it did help.

I haven't read a book telling me how to do something in over 30 years. I read some books on Photography, because I wanted to teach myself how to take better pictures. My son, Paul was 15-16 years old at the time, and he became my model. After that I decided to teach myself to arrange flowers, so bought some books on how to make flower arrangements. I enjoyed that, however, that became very expensive, buying flowers every week. So tried silk flower arrangements, but got tired of them, because they never changed. hehe.
