In every major turning point in my life, I’ve turned to books.
I’ve literally given myself therapy using books.
You can reread books, they won’t judge you or be impatient with you, and you can go at your own pace.> If the book doesn’t speak to you, find one that does.
You don’t have to finish fast just to check it off your list. You’re allowed to take your time and enjoy yourself.
I only buy books I’ve already read and know are worth buying. Borrow 95% of what you read from the library (and give a donation when you can).
The book stayed the same, but you changed—so you’re going to get new takeaways.
Active reading is connecting the dots with what you already know and believe.
