Get yourself to a library--books are their business.

My first job at 16 was working in a library. Learned a lot about trapping,while reading in a library.

Yes, get a library card and you can take home all the books you want and read them. When I was young a trip into town to go to the library was a treat, couldn't wait to get home and start on an arm load of books to read. Learned how to trap, carpentry, electrical, Gardning, raising animals. All started with books from the library and some trial and error. This was long before YouTube.

Yup, get yourself a library card. Google ain't the only source for information and you'll learn how to conduct research.

Exactly. It's a good skill to be able to find and compile information without a search engine.

even if I am buying a book like a reloading manual I will try and get it for free at the library and see if I like that book before putting out the cash.

not sure how closed down or open you libraries are right now , our library just opened back up to the public it had been use the online app then pick up at the door.

Like it was mentioned earlier, growing up the library was a treat. I bet all libraries smell the same, like old books. Whether it is E-Books or hard bound books, reading will make you smarter. Anyone remember the Dewey Decimal System?

I've been wondering what I was going to do with all my college textbooks...Books are pretty heavy, but if you want to pay to ship I can send you a list of them...Off hand I have Forest Zoology, Physics, Genetics, probably botany, and a bunch more too...
