November 08 CDPB Theme: Books - My Blogging and Internet Reference Books



These are some of the blogging and internet books I have been reading. Honesty, this kind of books never was my cup of tea. I never was interested in technical stuff simply because - I thought - they didn't contribute much to enlightening the mind. I would prefer reading literary works, phylosophical/religious books, biographies of great personalities, history books, and books about arts and photography. All that, however, changed when I got to know blogging and became hooked to it. At first, I bought and read these books out of necessity, that is to find answers to my questions and help me solve the problems I had with my blogging. Then, as I began to grasp the basics of it, I began to want more of it - not in the addictive sense, but rather because I began to see the possibilities of using the internet and blogging for my teaching, which is my job, and my photography, a hobby which I call "a love affair" because of the joy it has given me.

Anyway, this kind of books still are not the primary kind of books I would read. My home library (and my wife's and my children's), which I can proudly say quite sizeable, are still dominated by my cup of tea's books.

Just in case you are curious: How many internet and blogging books have I read? Not many. I'd say about 20 something.

Twenty is "not many"?! ha! No wonder you are an expert, Eki.
I raise a glass of tea to your other books in your home library.

I have enjoyed looking at your photograph for theme day. Nice work.

I forgot about theme day today so I just found some of the books I wrote and took a photo and published that. Too late to be included in the group but it worked for me. LOL

Tanya said...

I can't get into techy books no matter how I try. I just rely on asking questions from people who have already read them,lol...happy Theme Day!

slim said...

Eki- great post. Thanks for putting so much of yourself into it. Perhaps you or one of your students will have published a book you can post by the next "books" theme day. Enjoy!

Jilly said...

A lovely choice for today. It ties up our blogging with today's Theme. Great idea!

Laurie said...

What a great choice for Theme Day, Eki! I should invest in some blogging books, too. I still have a lot of unanswered questions about this medium. I also need more digital photography reference books since my background is in 35mm film.

Thanks for sharing a part of your library! I'm sure I'd love to peruse your literature and art books, too...

Kelly said...

I think you have read about twenty more than I have...maybe that is my problem! : )

I love good literature, but lately I have been reading more biographical works too. I would bet you have great taste in books!

PJ said...

I think I need to get busy and invest in some blogging reference material. What an array!

melanie said...

Blogging and internet books ... oui, c'est très utile ! Mais je crois que je préfère les études et les romans.

Mo said...

Ok so now you are the blogger expert we can call on for advice.

Susie of Arabia said...

Wow! I feel so inferior - I haven't read ANY books about blogging or the internet!!! Now I know who to ask when I have a question!

Rambling Woods said...

My goodness that is a lot of book. I never thought I would be reading PC World and Birder's Digest until a few years ago..but at least we try to learn about something that we become interested in. It's good for the mind.

the donG said...

wow! you said not too many. but reading 20books is really many! never tried reading one.

if ever i get to buy three of those books, what would those three be?

thanks!

Very interesting to see your reading matter and how you say it has changed. I have never read a blogging book, but I do dip into tech booiks when needs be. I was expecting photography books from you, which proves you can't judge a book by it's cover.

Ming said...

Nice selection of books you have there.
