I love the times I see my daughter secretly staying up past her bedtime, under a blanket with a flashlight and a book, because the book was too good to put down. I quietly back out of the room and let her continue.
Charlie Munger said, “In my whole life, I have known no wise people who didn’t read all the time, none, zero.”
Reading is important. My mom knew that, too, when I was growing up. In fact, we used to keep a list taped to the inside of a cupboard where I would write the title of each book I read. For every book I read, she bought me a cassette tape of my choosing. The bribe worked. She knew that I’d have a love of reading soon enough. As a result, all my life you never caught me without a book.
