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?
