On being an ignoramus. Part 7 (One crazy artist’s take on reading books in the 21st century)
I once believed that reading books is better than watching movies, YouTube videos, documentaries, listening to podcasts, and reading blogs, or Quora. That it’s the ultimate way of accumulating knowledge and gaining wisdom. I think I believed so because that’s what most educated people believe and that’s what so called enlightened or successful people pass down to their followers (or disciples, if you will).
