Stage 9 is the most important and should lead back to Stage 1.
Perhaps it should be the reading/book circle.09/05/2017 #1 Tausif MundrawalaI have been a firm believer in the phases and process of being a reader and then passing on to the future generations.

The future generation then has access to such an open university. Thanks for sharing this my friend, @Daniel 🐝 Campos

smile, Ella Close22/03/2017 #45 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#44 Thanks for giving me a glimpse of your teacher's world, @Ella de Jong. I am struck by the 'changing' frequency. I am certain that our impatience in the digital world is adding to our lack of focus in the physical world. And maybe young brains will adapt in ways I don't let comprehend, but it seems to me that we will hit a biological hard stop to this lack of attention in just a handful of years.
I am really glad, though, that there is still a chance for the joy of turning pages to resonate, although I am resigned to their being a historical legacy at some point.... books are inefficient when it comes to weight and space and are very susceptible to water and insect damage, among other things.
So, I'd love to be introduced to a contemporary Dutch writer of fiction, if you can point me in that direction.17/03/2017 #44 Ella de Jong@Deb 🐝 Helfrich#43 I can only tell you what I see happening while I'm the temporary teacher in class. I've been in 7 schools since February 1rst and what I saw was this: large differences in classes regarding children reading books, physical books. In classes where there are a lot of books, on places where the children have easy access, where there is serious 'taking care of / respect for' the books, in those classes I've seen a lot of children reading and enjoying it.
In other classes there was time for reading but a lot of children didn't liked it and kept on 'changing' their book. "I don't like this one, I want to find an other one" and then hanging around the books hoping to have a chat with someone ..
I've seen quiet a bit of schoolwork on tablets, but no reading books on their tablet, so I cannot say anything about that. My guess is they really like to turn the pages, see an actual book, feeling it, touching it. Being busy a lot of hours per day looking at a screen, only touching their tablet or the school laptop with their fingertips ... it's a very positive sensation to read and hold a physical book is my guess!
At home I've spoiled my kids: they want to HAVE the books... None of us read e-books (certainly not the one Ive written :-) )14/03/2017 #43 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#34 @Ella de Jong, I would love to hear your teacher's take on whether electronic books are lacking something when it comes to engaging youth, is there a richness in getting to turn a page. Or do they find screens and pixels as or maybe more captivating?
I do certainly 'envy' the access that the digital formats provide. I only had access to the books physically present in my small town, I think I would be changed in some unknowable way if I'd had a broader access to online search functionality rather than definitively limited to the stroll through the stacks.13/03/2017 #40 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#31 I sort of figured you would be a book person, @Lada 🏡 Prkic. I'd would to see a virtual book club blossom in the hives, it is especially fertile ground for authors themselves to create a lot of deep engagement and a way for readers to participate with others around a book that means a lot. I hope to participate in a lot of discussions around books in the future.13/03/2017 #38 Cyndi wilkins#13 "I never had you tagged as one of the 'billion' sheep, Deb.

You weave a fantastic story that changed my relationship to sales in a major way. In fact, I am starting to work on partnering on a Business Development project - and Your Personalized Sales Plan was the first thing that came to my mind as I start to plan out my work stream.... I'd really recommend "It's Time to Sell: Cultivating the Sales Mind-Set" for anyone pivoting into a role that requires a healthy mindset towards sales!
https://www.amazon.com/Its-Time-Sell-Cultivating-Mind-Set-ebook/dp/B019D70NHA11/03/2017 #34 Ella de JongThank you @Deb 🐝 Helfrich for reminding me of the importance of books and how I ALWAYS take picture books with me when I'm going to school and teach (for one day as a temporary teacher, like my current situation). I'm used to it, I'm not sure how many other teachers do the same :-)
Even for the 12 year olds there are interesting, fun and beautiful warm picture books about emotions!
I adore the book: "Rose and the midnight cat. by John Brown; Illustrations Ron Brooks" for it's story about jealousy and the beautiful fine art illustrations!11/03/2017 #33 🐝 Fatima G. Williams@Deb 🐝 Helfrich aren't book's man's best friend. I remember my first book. The one that made me fall in love with reading. Pride and Prejudice By Jane. I loved the book so much and reading became a thing after that. I have alot of books that are up the loft cause nobody reads at home apart from me.And I'm not home. 🙄
This emotions has a purpose video was such a great experience to watch you transform the book to reality. I love the idea of a emotions journal. I've gone back to the habit of writing a daily journal and it's going good so far. Thank you Deb. I look forward to our conversations.
Finally Books help our celebrate our life So it can be well-lived. Stay awesome always.11/03/2017 #31 Lada 🏡 PrkicI am a book lover and a definition of books as a girl's best friend is close enough to what books really mean to me. Although I don't read the life-affirming books, I enjoyed the video and find the whole concept of a virtual book club very interesting.
What a great idea of a double buying some titles! Some of my books which I revisit often are pretty battered.
Deb, I really enjoyed your excellent article that celebrates the art of reading.11/03/2017 #26 Deb 🐝 Helfrich#13 There may be a touch o' the Irish, @Ken Boddie, but mostly I descend from the land of the printing press - at least that is my excuse for being a kindle refusnik. I read ebooks on my monitor and type up notes and quotes, but 'reading' is something I cannot divorce from sitting in a comfortable position, most likely with a blanket around my feet, beverage at hand, book propped just so for easy page turning.
Now about my flock..... I typically just do what I do, but when someone stops to ask for directions, they tend to realize I think pretty exhaustively about any position I care enough to espouse. I save the heel nipping for when someone tries to get the sheep all confused over specious claims, then I can run around and bring some clarity to the fields.
And Producer could indeed be christened with the nom de plume 'virtual emotions journal' just between us and our hundreds of worldwide followers and hive-mates.

I just find not many people can write about Wall St unless they have been through it (like Michael Lewis has). But for books in that sphere I highly recommend Liar's Poker, The Predators Ball, Den of Thieves, Flash Boys, Vendetta: American Express and the Smearing of Edmond Safra. For fiction, I am addicted to Anne Rice.10/02/2017 #59 Gert Scholtz#57 @Mohammed Sultan Quite true - one cannot judge a book by its cover, as the saying goes. Better to scan some parts, look at the content pages and read the cover flaps to get and idea of it.

Love to read books but also read about books. I have many books but unfortunately not enough space for shelves. We live in a small apartment and many of my books are stored in the boxes. Therefore I decided several years ago to buy only the necessary technical literature. Other books that interest me I borrow from the library, usually 1-3 books per month. Bought or borrowed, books can open our minds and hearts.10/02/2017 #51 Kevin PashukThanks for the tour of your library Gert.
I fully subscribe to the idea that in order to better know a person, check out their library. All of the truly interesting people I have met in life were readers, who would bring in such wonderful perspectives gleaned from their reading. I can't say I've had the same stimulating conversations with those who only use media (esp. television) to form their worldview.
I shared some of my library in previous posts, I would hope that more Bees would follow.
