Musing Mondays — Reference

Today’s Musing Mondays question is… “Do you keep reference books on your shelves at home? What’s your first port of call when you need information – the internet or a book?”

I have a non-fiction shelf on the bookcase in the fun room, but most of them aren’t reference books, per se. I think the only ones that qualify as reference are my travel guides, which are for hiking in Cleveland and sight-seeing in Ohio; my rhyming dictionary and my guide to correct grammar, which, really, I never use; and an MLA style handbook that I used to use all the time before I got into library science and had to learn APA instead.

So, really, my first port of call for information has to be Professor Google, because I just don’t have it on my bookshelves!
