The Right Book

In the past I’ve written about “The Right Book“.

I defined it as a book “that make[s] you better, smarter and healthier so you can live a better life.”

Recently, I came across this quote by Austin Kleon:

“If a book makes me want to keep reading, it’s the right book.
If a book makes me want to start writing, it’s the right book.”

Austin Kleon, The Right Book

Our definitions have something in common:

The right books help you take action.

They make you turn the next page, think about an idea, reflect on your actions or change your behavior.

Do you read the right book?
