Lewis Carroll's First Rule of Learning - Lewis Carroll

This quote was added by fiskhe
Begin at the beginning, and do not allow yourself to gratify a mere idle curiosity by dipping into the book, here and there. This would very likely lead to your throwing it aside, with the remark "This is much too hard for me!," and thus losing the chance of adding a very large item to your stock of mental delights.

Usually, you should first see the cover, the back of the book, the table of contents, and then a chapter that interests you. At least that's how I gauge a book before I really commit to reading it.
