It's probably your doctor wanting to make a house call.

Books or digital

I don't have to worry about the power source on a book. Computers are great information, however too many people don't recognize the difference between information and knowledge. I find that topics on the internet are more about information and lacking in actual knowledge of a subject matter. Kind of like ignorance and indifference, (I don't know and I don't care). Reading about something and actually doing it are very far apart. Lack of experience can be a cruel teacher. I would rather have a book.

I do both.. I like books and also have a computer in the garage.. It depends on what the project is..where I will look and what I need.
Sometimes doing the research in the "library" is very time efficient..and just seems wrong in there with a laptop..

Im 30 and I still prefer a paper copy for in the shop; although I have hundreds of books as e books (check out the gutenburg press project sometime The Best Search Links on the Net I think).
However a lot of my books are OLD; especially some of my cook books. I learned a tip in culinary school to keep your wife's Good Housekeeping cookbook in good shape, cover the open pages with a sheet of saran wrap. This way you can read it, make a checkmark with a marker if its an involved step by step process (if you do this make sure the plastic wrap is SECURE otherwise you may look back and its moved) AND your pages stay food, grease, paint free.

I'd like to see a modern book on old engines. How to build a flathead, how to build a 265/283 today, or a Model T/Model A performance engine in todays world. Floyd Clymer was great 60yrs ago, but as these engines have far exceeded their lifespan, there are new things to look for in a core, some parts are just unavailable, and the 1960s prices are a bit out of date.

A good book on stainless and aluminum trim restoration; and an easy to read reference guide for using things like dial indicators and micrometers (in large print with a split ring binding with poly coated pages) would be nice.
