There's one thing most successful people seem to have in common: they read a lot. A young Elon Musk read science fiction novels when he was young, for up to 10 hours a day. Every week, Bill Gates reads one new book. Warren Buffet regularly reads 5 to 6 hours every day at age 89.
It's not just successful business people who read a lot, though there are a lot of celebrity bookworms too. On 20 surprisingly smart celebrities we present the bookshelves in our infographic below. Such celebrities read for different reasons. Many for fun, and others for supporting them in their personal lives.
Lebron James has been getting used to reading books before a game. It is his way of escaping, taking his mind off the game, and giving him another perspective. Kendall Jenner 's enthusiasm for reading only began in 2019 when her agent released recommendations for her book. Jenner says reading is a form of therapy that helps her address anxiety. Kim Jisoo, from Blackpink, reads to alleviate tension. Jisoo doesn't mind re-reading books either; she says it always gives her a different perspective.
