Why We Read

Whatever problem you’re struggling with is probably addressed in some book somewhere written by someone a lot smarter than you.

This is all written down, often in the first person. Read it.

A look at any random sampling of successful people finds a common trait: a love of books and an education that was primarily self-driven.

How to Read Lots of Books

  • The key to reading lots of book begins with no longer thinking of it as some extra activity that you do. 
  • Don’t borrow books, build your library instead and take pride in that.
  • Don’t just passively read. Make reading an active process. Make notes and comments to yourself as you read (this is called marginalia). If you see an anecdote or quote you like, transfer it to a commonplace book and use a system to organize and store all of it.
