#WorldBookDay How Reading Shapes Your Life

Today is World Book Day.  This day happens annually on April 23rd, and is organized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, to promote reading, publishing and copyright.

My love of books goes back decades.  I started reading at age 3, and could read newspaper articles, and a variety of other content.  While there was a time in my life where I didn't read books as much, my love affair with reading never faded.

In 2016, I read over 50 books, which I'm positive is the most I've ever read in a calendar year.  Mostly leadership and self management types of books, but there was some other types in the mix.  I read to improve myself, so I can help improve others.  My growth career wise can be blamed on my love of books.

Do you read?  How much?  Why do you read?  Send me a tweet @BfastLeadership and let me know.
