“My goal is to read 100 books this year.”
You know what I think about that? I think it’s a terrible idea. I don’t think you should read 100 books. I think you should read five. I’ve been reading some of the same books for 20 years.
I want the words of this book — the intent that the writer spent putting his life’s work down on a page — I want to make that part of my life. I don’t want to just read it and have the information in my brain and forget it the next day and move on to the next book.
I want to internalize everything I read.
