In pandemic-lockdown, I’ve nearly finished the entire Dresden Files series from Jim Butcher. I’ve really only the short story collections to go. So coming upon this new idea for a reading habit could help me ease into whatever I start reading next.
In the book The Choose Yourself Guide to Wealth, author James Altucher suggests that every day you should read:
- 10% of a nonfiction book to get ideas
- 10% of an inspirational book
- 10% of a high-quality fiction book
- BONUS: Read a game-related book (or play a mental game like chess)
Additionally, for some very interesting reading, this article from Aug. 6, 2016, the New York Times reveals some of Altucher’s failures that led to his giving advice in the first place.
