Learning Through Books – Independent Mastery

leave a comment »

This is my first entry about my love for learning, especially where books are concerned. I have hundreds of volumes at my house that I read, reread, skim and thoroughly enjoy. Although I am not a big fictional reader, I do have my share of Grisham, Brown, even Tolkien. Learning is at the core of who I am and sharing ideas, creating them, coming together with others to think is a passion that I have. Much of mainstream media is governed by the powers that BE (be what, who knows), so I am also very interesting in the efforts of the regular Joe. Now the special stuff is what comes from the thinker who spends her time developing a theory, process or design, tests it, tries it and then is able to share that, to some degree, to the masses – and then, because of the great effort, time and trouble put into this thought and way, she becomes mainstream. One of the most recent examples of this, to me, comes from a fictional writer – Stephanie Meyer. Wow, has she gone from the college grad with a degree in English to the superstar fictional writer that has blown past those who are stale in their way of thinking, right down the road to Hollywood. This independent thinker is the type or writer and person, frankly, that I am looking for. If you know of anybody like that – who is just consumed by having a thought that can be taken to new heights, especially as a book or just an article – maybe an ebook (my new favorite) or e-book, however your like to read it – please share
