Reading a lot is just fine, but spending all of your time reading is a waste. Those who read too much prevent themselves from incorporating what they’ve read into their own lives.
Reading is about temporarily trading places with someone else. You’re literally choosing to look at the world through the author’s eyes the moment you pick up a book. It’s an extremely helpful tool for self improvement. However, when you start reading too much, all of the valuable information you sifted through and collected starts becoming worthless.
In the words of the evil dictator, Adolf Hitler, “Reading is not the ends in itself, but a means to an end.” Start incorporating. If you read a lot but incorporate nothing, then you’re missing the entire point of reading altogether.
