I have a passion for reading and books are a great source of information, inspiration and entertainment. But there are way too many books out there to read and yet only a finite amount of time to read them.
According to Our World in Data, Japan is the country with the highest life expectancy at birth, a mere 83 years and change. Hence, if you start at the age of 11, you have 72 years of meaningful reading. If you read a book per month, that’s just 864 books (72 x 12) in a lifetime. If you read a book per week, things look a little better at 3,744 books (72 x 52) but that’s still a very small reading capacity.
So, until we find a way to either increase our I/O (neural lace anyone?) or life expectancy, we can only work with what we have. Here are some books that I have read over the years. Hope you enjoy some of them as well.
