(1) Truly good books are few and far between — and so they’re priceless

Rebecca Solnit, A Field Guide to Getting Lost

(2) Conversely: there’s a lot of garbage out there

(3) Reading easily becomes just another form of consumption — and procrastination

(4) If you’re reading for growth, read to get answers on specific questions

(5) Listen to people who have actually, firsthand experienced the thing

(6) Context and timing is king

(7) Confirmation bias, the risk of influence, and the fact that no writing can be totally objective

(8) All of this being said, reading is a personal journey

My top recommendations
