Why I Don’t Read 100 Books a Year
Samantha Zhang

Avid readers usually read to enjoy. I find it extremely pleasurable to take up a book and live through it without any pressure of having to create something out of it as soon as I finish it. The learnings of the book manifest themselves in my thoughts, my way of life, conversations and in any projects I take up. Just like one shouldn’t be reading to finish a book, one may find themselves unwilling to articulate what they went through during the course of the book. Foremost, reading is meant to be enjoyed. Passive or active. For people just beginning to read, passive reading becomes an important tool to start enjoying the act itself.
