Why You Should Read One Book A Week

Most people tend to seek out things that will entertain them. Most people however aren’t successful.

On the other hand, successful people tend to seek out things that will teach them how to be successful.

For this reason, reading is, and always has been, the habit of the highly successful.

Whether you look at someone like Bill Gates, Charlie Munger, or Warren Buffett, you’ll find that it is extremely common for the world’s most successful people to read at least one book a week.

One book a week is 52 books a year. That’s 520 books a decade!

Imagine what your life would be like if you also read one book a week for the next 10 years of your life.

Given that you read the right books, you couldn’t help but be healthier, happier, and financially more successful as a result of just reading more.

The highly successful know that if they get the right book in their hands then the rest will naturally flow their way.

      1. reading books that are entertaining isn’t bad, it just depends on what you want from life. If someone wants to be a millionaire, it’s probably best that that person reads a book that will teach him how to be a millionaire instead of a casual read book

    1. well like I said, given that you read the right books, you wouldn’t help but be more successful from just reading more. This means you have to read books that will actually teach you what you have to do to be successful. Books that entertain like Harry Potter or Twilight won’t help you much. And books that only motivate and inspire won’t help you much either. Like Jim Rohn said, “You can’t just be motivated, you have to be educated.” If you are reading books that are teaching you how to start a business, how to build a blog, or how to invest then over time you’ll definitely see the results from reading

  1. I read a mix of books. I learn from many of them even if they are meant primarily for entertainment. When I read a book, even if it is purely for enjoyment and it is good, I post a review. I hope,in that way, I am contributing to the authors success and that, as an author myself other will do the same for me.

  2. I’m more like of a slow reader and re-reading the book till I absorbed at least 70% of the content if it’s worth looking into again. Other than that, I quick scan some books in which some of the contents and ideas behind are already taken into account.
