Never Stop Reading

Just picked up 4 new books from the library today. Reading reminds me everyday that textbooks have hardly any educational value. Self-education through reading actual books provides a better perspective on the world. It should be common sense to rather read a non-fiction book on whatever subject you want rather than a textbook. One could say that textbooks are factual and other books are just an author's opinion. There is some truth in that, but experienced authors in the subject you are reading about have a more logical and clear understanding of the subject, which is why i have learned a whole lot more and in a much faster manner with self education than when i was in high school. What I have learned in almost 5 years since graduating i could not learn in high school, no matter how advanced the class.
