How Many Blogs Equal One Business Book? Blogs vs Books

I’ve been working on a new project (which is why it’s been quiet here lately), which involves reading lots!! of business books. I always enjoy the research process both online and offline, but have found reading real books a relaxing more focused approach for what I need right now.
I love the tangents the internet takes me along, but sometimes I just need more structured, in depth information on the one topic in the one place.
Blogs vs Books - I’d like to share some snippets of conversation of this from other bloggers.
David Zinger at Slacker Manager urges us to read at least one book this (Northern Hemisphere) Summer. David shares the results of an American Booksellers Assocation report which says
the average business person with 6 or more direct reports above the age 40 reads .7 business books every 5 years!
Robin Capper, a commenter on David’s post says
Yikes! How many blogs equal a book? I do read both but blogs are getting more of my attention these days.
David responds
Blogs are nice and bite size so that seems darn good to me.
I like “bite size” as a description of how blogs serve up information.
DISCUSSION STARTERS

  • Do you find you read less business books these days or how do you manage the web info, book info mix?
  • Tell us about your must read business books, and why we should read them too.
  • Let’s talk books vs blogs, books and blogs, books or blogs or books plus blogs plus whatever else.

And of course, as always, throw your own writing, blogging and business related topics into the mix too.

  • So many of the short story collections we read for The Story Prize in 2011 were skillful, engaging, and well-deserving of a wider readership. We could only choose three books as finalists.

Fast fact about writing

Writers not writing for a living often find enjoyment and small payouts from Web sites seeking material to raise their sites higher in the search engine rankings. Although this is a legitimate practice, the writing being published on the Web can often be less than professional. This lack of professionalism distorts the line between qualified and amateur writers. Writing standards are often not the highest priority as Web sites seek to drive traffic to gain advertising exposure. It seems as if readers are not as concerned about the writing quality, as long as they find a relevant account on a particular topic.
