Big Think

  • “Many readers buy books with every intention of reading them only to let them linger on the shelf.
  • Statistician Nassim Nicholas Taleb believes surrounding ourselves with unread books enriches our lives as they remind us of all we don’t know. [we don’t know what we don’t know, until we learn it!]
  • The Japanese call this practice tsundoku, and it may provide lasting benefits.”
