I'm not much of a book person during the better part of the year - mainly because I have enough reading from school to keep me occupied. Now that the exams are over, I've got my eye on a few books that I'd like to dive into.
I don't read novels (fiction) so most of the time I don't see the point in buying a book. If I need some information, I just Google it. It's always available and most of all, always up to date - especially when they are books about technical information that changes almost monthly.
