"In my whole life, I have known no wise people who didn't read all the time -- none, zero. You'd be amazed at how much Warren (Buffett) reads -- at how much I read. My children laugh at me. They think I'm a book with a couple of legs sticking out."
-- Charlie Munger, Poor Charlie's Almanack
What a great quote. As an avid reader myself, I can't emphasize enough the importance of reading and how great an impact it can have on our lives. Reading is gift that should never be wasted. Just as you should maintain a watch list for any and all stocks on your radar, I think keeping a watch list for any and all books that you want to read is just as valuable (love that Goodreads app, by the way).
And so, to that end, I recently took to Twitter to solicit book recommendations. The response I got was overwhelming, and I am grateful to everyone who took the time to respond. Here is a compilation of those responses. I hope that you're able to find a good book or two in here to throw on your watch list.
P.S. I'm currently reading Doris Kearns Goodwin's latest tome, The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism, and while I'm still early into the book, I'm 100% certain it's one you should put on your radar.
