How many books do you read per month nowadays?
Two? One? Half a book?
If you’re a busy professional, perhaps not even that?
I’ve always found reading to be an essential part of personal development. Not blogs – I mean the normal, in-depth, catch every word – not just the headlines – reading ;).
Over the past couple of years, I’ve noticed how my shelves started getting full of books I had no idea when I’d come around to read. Business books, fiction, language books, you name it …
Looming over me like a very pronounced shadow of outdated aspirations.
But why do I read less?
I suppose partly due to the standard reasons that we all face – apart from the apparent busyness, it’s ever-shifting interests and professional pressures that are making it increasingly hard to sit down and dive into one of the classics that you’ve always felt bad about not having read.
