Reading 100+ Books a Year to “Upgrade” Yourself is a Complete Waste of Time
Zat Rana

Your thoughts and observations are good common sense. Let me add one or two others.

  1. Repitition is the mother of learning. I find it easier to read a second book which presents the same material in a new way than to reread most books. For this reason, some may trade quantity of reading for quality of reading.
  2. I tend to read slowly, thoughtfully, underlining particularly pithy thoughts. I suppose it is the human equivalent of marking my territory.
  3. Some books deal with fundamental things while others do not. The Bible is a book set apart (the base meaning of “Holy”), worth much more attention and reflection than others. Whether as a text shared by billions of people, or as a Divine message (as I believe), it is worth particular attention. Information serves us, but wisdom shows us what realities we must adapt ourselves to; information serves us, but Truth is what we are to serve.
One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
