  1. These are 76 books in total that means a book in less than a week. How is this possible ? Can you give some tips. I am curious to know how many hours per day did you spent reading and at what time of the day ?

    • Hi

      Well I was also surprised at the number when I saw it first. But it’s true.

      I always have 3 reading books at any point of time.

      Last year, I spent most of my 90 min cummute (to & fro) to office to read. Apart from this there is 30 mins each read during lunch time and sleep time if occasion permits.

      Another thing that might have contributed to this was a mix of eBook and real books.

      Hope this helps
