I thought that when I got a computer I would stop buying books. I imagined that everything I needed to know was at my finger tips and in a way it is but nothing can take the place of a good book. I have a pile of about of about12 books that I constantly refer to. I have bookshelves and bookshelves of books but I find myself continually coming back to these 12.
