10 Ways to Read More Books in 2021

I read 70+ books in 2020.[1] Below I’ll tell you how. “If you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying.” I don’t think you should cheat. Cheating is wrong. But you should, however, make the most of every advantage you have as best as you can. That’s what I seek to do with reading. I take advantage […]
