Following up last week’s question about reading writing/grammar guides, this week, we’re expanding the question….
Scenario: You’ve just bought some complicated gadget home . . . do you read the accompanying documentation? Or not?
Do you ever read manuals?
Anything at all?
I do read the manuals, usually after I have first attempted to do it myself! I do have to say though, the most recent user manuals that I have tried to use were anything but user friendly! Even the ones that rely on pictures to give the instructions tend to be pretty darned confusing!
I do love looking through cookbooks and recipe magazines, so that could be considered How-To books I guess, and I have several diet books which I read through occasionally. They could be considered Self Help right? One of these days I will do something more than just read them though, and actually put a plan into action!
