How to Buy Books Online
Books are Food for the mind and Soul
The old adage "what you eat today walks and talks tomorrow", is never more true than when it comes to what we read. The brain is the digestive track for absorbing influences that pertain to the way we act, the things we believe in, the feelings we have towards others, and our direction finder in life. It is the most precious part of our body for without it we are nothing. Take away the brain and you have a non-thinking, non-active vegetable. So how important are books and the media in the way we turn out and shape our character?
How many realise that everything we take in through our senses is absorbed by the brain and impacts on what we become in life and how successful we may be? For some people books are their main influence and they direct their income and their future. People in this category include professional people, students, writers, journalists and so many others that its rather a long list to contemplate. But people also read for entertainment, to pass the time and to simply connect with the outside world.
This lens sets out the availability of books online to suit all types of readers and that covers rather a wide range.
Your Future May Depend on What you read
Who you are and what you do is important to your success in life. Presentation is everything and from the second you pour forth your first words to a potential employer you are automatically placed in a category of 'good potential' or 'not worth the trouble'.
Read the right stuff to make your presentation the best it can be. Polish your performance through what others have to say. Dust off the cobwebs with new learning. Build confidence and self-esteem with knowledge.
Importance of Books
As a writer books are the source of my knowledge.
Textbooks and School Fees
These can be a parents' worst nightmare. But its even more tragic if a student has to pay for her/his own books and fees. That's why saving money where possible for all things related to education is a top priority, even if you are wealthy.

Writers, Authors and Readers
Meet the author - before one reads one needs to know who wrote the book and then the big questions follow. Why? What will it do for me? Can I get something from this book? How long will it take to read this?
There are heaps of questions that go through a reader's mind when they choose a book to read. How do you choose?

How to Read an EBook - The best device available
eBooks are the Greatest
On hearing about the new e-book readers the first thing that entered my mind was doing away with the many book shelves and cupboards that take up so much room in my study. Many stay year after year unopened while collecting dust and prone to insect attack as the pages age and yellow. With e-books there is a new way of reading and storing information that belongs to the 21st Century. It is also my preferred way of publishing now as well.
Collectors Items and Antiquarian Books
These go back to the 15th Century
Hard to find, out of print books turn up in the most unusual places. When book vendors are keen enough they get their hands on them and sometimes they come on the market at a very reasonable price.
