Letter IX Published – How many books do you have left to live?

Letter IX published on 12th June 2019.

Here’s an excerpt:

What do you think 1590 books look like?

I took a guess that my local book store has 10,000 titles. It turns out that they have 50,000 titles!

Your local library has at least 30,000 titles on the shelf, probably a lot more.

I’ve got over 500 books in my library.

It’s possible to write down 100 books that you would like to read. You could probably write a list of 500 if you put the effort in.

I’m not going to be able to read *all* the books. It’s simply not possible.

So, what do we need to do to cut through the noise and read the right books?
