I own quite a few puppet books. I’ve even read some! (I only slightly kid). Some books are better than others, and I wish I had more and have read more of them. Probably my favorite thing regarding puppetry is reading about it. More than manipulation, more than watching, more than creating my own projects, I love to read about puppetry. It’s magic to me. About the only thing I love more is owning actual puppets (or commissioning the creation of puppets).
