Story I’m Thinking About

John Fenzel Stephen King on Books

We’re all trying do more with the time we have in our day, to include reading more books.  I ran across this story from Neil Pasricha at Harvard Business Review about author Stephen King:

“…Stephen King had advised people to read something like five hours a day. My friend said, “You know, that’s baloney. Who can do that?” But then, years later, he found himself in Maine on vacation. He was waiting in line outside a movie theater with his girlfriend, and who should be waiting in front of him? Stephen King! His nose was in a book the whole time in line. When they got into the theater, Stephen King was still reading as the lights dimmed. When the lights came up, he pulled his book open right away. He even read as he was leaving.”
