My References

All good posts should have their references. So to save time and space, I have gathered them all here. Most people seem to just copy and paste, pretty much by verbatim bits of someone else’s blog or copy off other websites, and although it is not wrong to ‘learn’ from others, and research off the Internet, as we all do to some degree, for our own benefit we should strive to do our own research, and gather our own resources.

Sometimes when searching for added interesting tidbits, I find almost word perfect copies of statements from several different sites. Are these sites credible? Lets all work together to add to our world, not just copy.

So I have decided to put down the references that I personally have in my own Library for several reasons:

  1. I really do dig a lot of information out of books I own
  2. To encourage you to get your own books on subjects you like
  3. To give you resources that you can research up too
  4. To show that a I don’t just copy and paste from somewhere else
  5. To let you know that I put in honest time and effort for you
  6. That I don’t Plagiarise
