A Riddle

A resident of a high-rise has a peculiar habit.  He lives on the 18th floor.  When he arrives in the elevator at his building to go home, he presses the button for the 10th floor, gets off and walks the last eight flights up home.  When leaving his unit, he gets in the elevator on the 18th floor, presses the button for the lobby and goes on his way. 

He does this each and every day.

What is the reason?

How Do You Pick Which Books To Read?

We are inundated with information in our 24/7 world.  It's like standing in front of an open fire hydrant.  I don't need to list the sources, we all know them and channel them.

But books are the bedrock of them all.  And as we get older, it becomes apparent that time is running out to be able to get to all of them that we want to.  So what's the best way to choose as we go?  Readers all have lists, whether solely ingrained mentally or written down somewhere.  And the lists are ever expanding.  At least, that's the case for me.

If you could, please leave an idea or two of how you navigate through this issue either in the comments here, or the alternative ways listed below.  I'll post each and every idea thrown my way.

Thanks for reading.
