Did you ever wonder what would be the most valuable books to read?

What books are the most important? What books are the most influential books of all time? There is not one book that would provide you with all the knowledge and information that you need. There is not one book that would make you intelligent. But there are books that will change you, there are books that will inspire you, and there are books that will enlighten you. And there are books that have not been written yet, so I feel that the best books that were ever written have not yet been written. So start writing. How Many Pages?

"If you don't read anything valuable or important, then knowing how to read will not be valuable or important." Math Too.

"Before you Read the best books, the first thing you should do is learn Media Literacy. It's not how much you know or what you think you know, it's the quality of what you know."

"If Reading does not move you forward in life, it may leave you paralyzed in life. Be careful what you choose to read, you have to know what to read and when to read it."

Read the Classics, Read BK101.

How Long does it take to Read a Book?

If you have a 500 page book, and you read 15 pages a day, it will take around 33 days to read the entire book. How long will it take to read 15 pages? If you can read 100–200 wpm words per minute, and if a page has 250 words, then it will take 1-2 minutes to read each page. So it will take on the average of 20 minutes a day to read 15 pages.

It adds up...If you're reading speed is 100 words a minute, and If you read 10 minutes a day, you will read a 1,000 words in one day, 7,000 words in one week, 30,000 words in one month, and 360,000 words in one year.

Question: How many words are on one page of BK101?
Answer: Let's count the words on the Laws Page, which has a high amount of words.

Using a 12pt Font on a 8.5 x 11 inch page, the average number of words on a page would be about 450-500. So, a 2,000 word paper would be about 4-5 pages.

Bookmark is a thin marker, commonly made of card, leather, or fabric, used to keep the reader's place in a book and to enable the reader to return to it with ease. Other frequently used materials for bookmarks are paper, metals like silver and brass, silk, wood, cord (sewing), and plastic. Many bookmarks can be clipped on a page with the aid of a page-flap. Bookmark_(computers).

How Long does it take to Write a Book?
Writing 250 words a day, and if a page has 250 words, you can write a 500 page book in less then 1.5 years. A fast hand writer can write 250 words in 15 Minutes on average. How Many Pages in a Book is too Many?

Why Shakespeare?

It's more then just reading things that are valuable and important, you have to understand why certain knowledge and information is valuable and important, and, you have to know how this knowledge and information will benefit you in your life, and, you have to know when will you most likely use this information and knowledge? If you correctly file in your mind what you have learned, then you will have an easier time remembering what you have learned, and, you will also understand more and know when to apply this knowledge in the future. 

Can You Name a Book? ANY Book??? Almost one in four Americans has not read a book in the past year.

Bibliography is the academic study of books as physical, cultural objects.

Amazon (children's books) - 100 Children’s Books

What book would you want to read if you could only have one book? If you could read only one book for the rest of your life, what would it be? What book would be the most valuable book? Or the most influential Book? How about one movie? Or one music album?

I couldn't choose just one book, even the dictionary needs instructions on how to use words and how to use language to
communicate effectively and efficiently. Just having one book would be very limited, terribly inadequate, and extremely dangerous. It would have to be a group or a collection of books, movies, music, games, knowledge and information. Something that could fit on a Jump-Drive or a Lap Top Computer

The Dictionary was our defining moment, it changed everything. Being able to accurately define words has made communication a lot faster and a lot more effective. The power of a written language creates enormous potential for all humans on earth. But this knowledge is not shared with everyone, which is why we have communication break down and communication errors all around the world. We need to improve access to knowledge and information. We need to utilize the enormous potential in every human on this planet. A better world is waiting, but it will not wait forever.

Self-Help Books

Self-Help Book is one that is written with the intention to instruct its readers on solving personal problems.

List of Self-Help Books (wiki)
Amazon (Books on Self Help)

Self-Help is a self-guided improvement—economically, intellectually, or emotionally—often with a substantial psychological basis. Many different self-help group programs exist, each with its own focus, techniques, associated beliefs, proponents and in some cases, leaders. Concepts and terms originating in self-help culture and Twelve-Step culture, such as recovery, dysfunctional families, and codependency have become firmly integrated in mainstream language.

The Power of Now book is intended to be a guide for day-to-day living and stresses the importance of living in the present moment and avoiding thoughts of the past or future.

Seven Habits is a business and self-help book. Be Proactive. Begin with the End in Mind. Envision what you want in the future so you can work and plan towards it. Put First Things First. Think Win-Win. Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood. Synergize. Continuous Improvements. Sharpen the Saw.

The Power of Positive Thinking is a self-help book by Norman Vincent Peale, originally published in 1952. It proposes the method of "Positive Thinking". It basically aims at ensuring that the reader achieves a permanent constructive and optimistic attitude through constant positive influence of his conscious thought (e.g. by using affirmations or visualizations) and consequently achieves a higher satisfaction and quality of life. While early contributors in the positive thinking movement had built on theoretical justifications (like Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, Ralph Waldo Trine, Prentice Mulford), the The Power of Positive Thinking made more use of positive case histories and practical instructions.

Tibet - Cry of the Snow Lion (DVD)

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance was first published in 1974, is a work of philosophical non-fiction, the first of Robert M. Pirsig's texts in which he explores his Metaphysics of Quality. The book describes, in first person, a 17-day journey on his motorcycle from Minnesota to Northern California by the author (though he is not identified in the book) and his son Chris. They are joined for the first nine days of the trip by close friends John and Sylvia Sutherland, with whom they part ways in
Montana. The trip is punctuated by numerous philosophical discussions, referred to as Chautauquas by the author, on topics including epistemology, ethical emotivism and the philosophy of science. Many of these discussions are tied together by the story of the narrator's own past self, who is referred to in the third person as Phaedrus (after Plato's dialogue). Phaedrus, a teacher of creative and technical writing at a small college, became engrossed in the question of what defines good writing, and what in general defines good, or "Quality". His philosophical investigations eventually drove him insane, and he was subjected
to electroconvulsive therapy which permanently changed his personality. Towards the end of the book, Phaedrus's personality begins to re-emerge and the narrator is reconciled with his past.

Why Shakespeare?

Because Shakespeare expresses ideas and emotions that we still know today and asks questions that are likewise relevant. Because Shakespeare was historically significant. Because Shakespeare manages to eloquently unite centuries of human evolution in a form that has its own unique flair for the slightly archaic yet still resonant. Because, as a figurehead for his time period, Shakespeare provides insight into the past and a starting-point for inquiry into that past. Because Shakespeare helps endow one with an eye for verbal and linguistic beauty that can enliven writing long after the play is finished. And because if you read carefully enough, the works of Shakespeare may still speak to you today. Story Telling - Acting

Why Shakespeare (youtube)

"It does not matter if Shakespeare was the original author, what's in a name?"

How to Study Shakespeare
Absolute Shakespeare

William Shakespeare was an English poet, playwright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet, and the "Bard of Avon". His extant works, including collaborations, consist of approximately 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, some of uncertain authorship. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. (26 April 1564 – 23 April 1616).
