If you’re looking for all the good reasons to read, check out the ongoing “Why Read” series:
We started by defining the three broad reasons to read. Then we talked about pleasure and education. We’ve defined perspective and looked at coincidence as an example. This series is ongoing so make sure you subscribe if it interests you. Profit, when it comes to books, is measured by pleasure experienced, knowledge earned, and perspective shifted.
