What is our motivation to read?
Expectations are to expand our minds, to get insights into life and perform better on daily basis.
Intuitively many people tend to favour non-fiction, because it talks about 'real' world rather than fantasy, but, to be honest, it is not true.
Non-fiction gives you somebody's opinion on a certain question, while a right choice of a novel might open up your internal wisdom, help you process important questions of life and death, loss and opportunity.
Reading is way more than a way to acquire information, it is a meditate inward process.
But... It is very hard to make a decision on what to read and why. Many lists tell you a bit about the book but not "the value proposition" on what you could discover by reading it. That's my goal 💅
