How to Read a Book was first written in 1940. It elaborates on ways to effectively read books from several different genres. It was revised in the 1970's to include a list of the top books you should read. Take a look to see how many of the books on the list you have read. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/How_to_Read_a_Book

Here's an article on how to become an author. http://chronicle.com/article/How-to-Be-an-Author/45932/

The Library of Congress is the research library of the United States Congress, de facto national library of the United States of America, and the oldest federal cultural institution in the United States. Located in four buildings in Washington, D.C., as well as the Packard Campus in Culpepper, Virginia, it is the largest library in the world by shelf space and number of books. http://www.loc.gov/index.html

To some avid readers, The New York Times is an invaluable source for book reviews, best sellers, new release announcements, and general news about books. http://www.nytimes.com/pages/books/index.html

Shorter than a novel, but longer than a magazine article -- a TED Book is a great way to feed your craving for ideas anytime. TED Books are short original electronic books produced every two weeks by TED Conferences. Like the best TEDTalks, they're personal and provocative, and designed to spread great ideas. TED Books are typically under 20,000 words — long enough to unleash a powerful narrative, but short enough to be read in a single sitting. http://www.ted.com/pages/tedbooks

Sometimes, books are banned. Take a look at the American Library Association's website and see if you agree with the decision to ban books. http://www.ala.org/advocacy/banned/
