Reading

Why bother reading classics, fiction, anything really if it isn't going to give you money or a career? Because 'how to human' is difficult to learn and this is your most likely shot at learning it. Textbooks and nonfiction will make you smarter, but fiction will give you wisdom. Each book is the distilled wisdom of one person's mind, life, and ideas. If you really think you've got all the answers without even looking at or thinking about what they made, you've shut yourself in a cage and thrown away the key.

A list of books I've personally read that broadened my perspective on things, which you might like, or maybe not, listed by genre

ROMANCE

SCIENCE FICTION

WAR FICTION

STRATEGY

REALISTIC FICTION/SOCIAL COMMENTARY

FANTASY

HISTORIC EPICS

HORROR

MURDER MYSTERIES

ANY RELIGIOUS TEXT

ROLEPLAYING BOOKS

Reading is good, but not enough for helping you understand the world, life, the universe, etc. Listen to music. Watch movies. Pay attention to your life as you are living it. Notice the details. Be here now, in the present, and pay attention.
