Thought you might be interested Thursday: The Simple Truth Behind Reading 200 Books a Year

Plenty of successful people have said oft-quoted things about reading and success: Garrison Keillor, Kofi Annan, Frederick Douglass, and Maya Angelou to name a few.   But it was Warren Buffet who motivated Charles Chu (@mmeditations on Twitter) to make a change in the face of Chu's not-so-satisfying life:
Somebody once asked Warren Buffett about his secret to success. Buffett pointed to a stack of books and said,
'Read 500 pages like this every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will...'

Chu breaks down the excuses for not reading everyday.   Read.   Then start reading books.
