If I don't read for sometime, I feel an emptiness surrounding me,I feel I am loosing my way, I feel I am dumb with no new ideas.
Everytime I read something, I get an idea, which makes me feel alive and useful.
It also makes me humble, I am calm and very confident, and I feel I am above all ordianry things in life, I dont care about ordinary stuff that restricts us in the strict confines of defined behaviuor and thought patterns.
More importantly I don't feel the need to be surrounded by people and don't associate my worth by how many people I hang out with. frankly, besides a few people, I rather be alone.
Its really sad people cannot spend 1 hour alone, they freak out, they hate there own thoughts and they look for company to keep them from themselves, reading has made me love myself, and has helped me in my search for myself which is a never ending process.
People were watching the superbowl, I didn't care I was reading , I was reading what Warren Buffet had to say about the stock market, it was a great article, I suggest everyone read it.

Also I was reading Charlie Munger on Psychology of Misjudgments

Happy reading
