If you want to get smarter and more knowledgeable, you should be reading more.

We all know that.

Some would make the claim that they are reading more.

On Twitter, blogs, magazines.

But are they learning, or just reinforcing what they already know?

It’s like eating smaller portions of chocolate and pretending that you’re dieting.  You’re not kidding anyone.

Read more, but also, read deeper.

Read real books written by real experts.

Read real books written by people you disagree with.

Read real books that cause you to stop and think.

Read more and remember, Twitter doesn’t count.
