Michael Hyatt on Reading Real Books

One of my very few, but very ambitious goals for this year is to read 52 books in 52 weeks. Michael Hyatt recently posted about why he switched from ebooks to physical books. He writes, 

My goal for 2015 was to read twenty-six books. I ended up only finishing twelve. Worse, I actually bought 106 new books.

Not only was it the format of the book (digital or physical) changed his consistency in reading, but also the fact that it’s hard to ignore books that actually take up space on your nightstand, or your desk, and not just live within an app. 

As I’m going through this journey to do so much reading, one of the expected, yet still surprising revelations is that I still read for my degree and I read for my job more than I read for myself. I still find myself struggling to make more margin in my life to read, even though I’m accomplishing the goal I set out to accomplish. Some things are just too important, I guess.  

But bottom line, I think I agree with Michael, and I have a few on the nightstand right now. Sometimes I think they're mocking me.
