“Reading one book is like eating one potato chip.”

“Reading one book is like eating one potato chip.”

– Diane Duane, science fiction and fantasy author

How many of you remember the old Lays potato chip commercial from the 70s and 80s – you know, the one that says you can’t eat just one? For some reason, those crispy salty treats caused many of us to find ourselves licking our fingers, having reached the bottom of the bag.

For me, books are a great metaphor for the satisfaction of gaining greater knowledge, entertaining ourselves, and expanding our worlds. They won’t even put those extra pounds on you.


Develop a list of books that you intend to read in the year ahead. Consider asking your friends, families and colleagues for their recommendations.

Buy at least one of those books this week on half.com, eBay or Amazon – and schedule yourself to enjoy those tasty bits of knowledge and pleasure daily.
