Over the past few years I have tried to focus on reading broadly and deeply. I try to mix history, fiction, current events, and professional development into my reading. I used to be hesitant to read more than one book at a time but I’ve found that working through three or four books simultaneously keeps me from burning out on one.

My personal goal each year is to read 20 books. Some years I hit it and some I end up a few short but I know I’m better off for having made the attempt.

Thanks for a thoughtful and thought provoking article.
