Stop Feeling Guilty About Having So Many Unread Books | Forbes

"Is your bookshelf teeming with more books than you have time to read? Or do your unread books induce feelings of guilt?" continues Forbes.

If so, you may be practicing the ancient Japanese art of tsundoku, that is, buying more books than you'll ever read.

You could curtail your out-of-control shopping habits and put a plan in place to focus on your reading list like Warren Buffett or Bill Gates.

Recognize Reading As A Source Of Learning 
There's nothing wrong with reading a cheap or trashy thriller for pleasure. A good business book, on the other hand, should stand as a source of learning or help you solve a problem.

In an interview with the New York Times, Gates said,
"These days, I also get to visit interesting places, meet with scientists, and watch a lot of lectures online. But reading is still the main way that I both learn new things and test my understanding." 
Gates is not alone. When asked about the secret to his success, Warren Buffett told a body of students about to graduate,"Read 500 pages...every day. That's how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.”
But how can you get through 50, never mind 500, pages a day?
