Marc Andreesen: Read a dozen books

“The problem of having to finish every book is you’re not only spending time on books you shouldn’t be but it also causes you to stall out on reading in general. If I can’t start the next book until I finish this one, but I don’t want to read this one, I might as well go watch TV. Before you know it, you’ve stopped reading for a month and you’re asking ‘what have I done?!’ I think that’s part of it. This moral hectoring of ‘don’t do that’ which can only be so successful. The other technique is to read a dozen books at a time.”
