20 Books Bill Gates Thinks You Should Read
Bill Gates is an avid reader. The world’s second richest man and founder of Microsoft reportedly reads about one book a week. Speaking on his love for books with Time Magazine, he said:
“You don’t really start getting old until you stop learning. Every book teaches me something new or helps me see things differently. I was lucky to have parents who encouraged me to read. Reading fuels a sense of curiosity about the world, which I think helped drive me forward in my career and in the work that I do now with my foundation.”

Every summer, the multi-billionaire releases the top books on his reading list. He believes everyone should read these books because they had an incredible impact on his journey to success. Interestingly, this list includes some fictional reads and memoirs but one thing all these books have in common is that they cover many vital aspects of life.
