Scenario: You’ve just bought some complicated gadget home . . . do you read the accompanying documentation? Or not?
Do you ever read manuals?
How-to books?
Self-help guides?
Anything at all?BTT

In the least, I usually skim manuals. I won’t say I read them cover to cover, but I do browse through them. I haven’t read a how-to book in a while. I don’t really read them as I would other types of books. I don’t consume them like I do novels or some other nonfiction as I usually just flip through, skim, and read what I like from how-to books. I have read self-help guides, but it has also been awhile. I would say I read a couple in a year.
