A Sobering but Fascinating Thought for Readers

“If you read one book a week, starting at the age of 5, and live to be 80, you will have read a grand total of 3,900 books, a little over one-tenth of 1 percent of the books currently in print.”
― Lewis Buzbee, The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop: A Memoir, a History

The only thing worth remembering is that not all books are worth reading or in areas of interest for you so you may get to about 0.9%.

While I will never read every book of interest I will have no shortage of candidates for my shortlist.

Keep well
