Billionaire Warren Buffett always makes time in his day to read books. And today, we have five book recommendations from Warren Buffett himself. Keep reading to see which books he recommends you to read!
Many people turn to Buffett for money advice. But he is also known to give advice when it comes to books and reading. In 2000, he told students at Columbia Business school that the best thing you can do is read 500 pages a day.
“That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest,” Buffett said, pointing at a stack of papers. “All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.”
That would be about 2 and a half hours of reading per day. It is no surprise that many people can’t do it. And if you are wondering, Buffett spends reading about 5 to 6 hours a day reading books and newspapers.
What we recommend is reading stuff that you enjoy and can learn new skills from. And one of the best ways to do that is reading books the billionaire himself lives by. You can see Warren Buffett’s 5 book recommendations below!
