What   does   it   mean   to   gain   time?   Montaigne   spent   20   years   writing   his   Essays   and   I   read   them   in   one   month.   I   realized   and   put   to   good   use   some   20%   of   what   I   had   read.   Thus,   my   gain   was   about   4   years.   The   more   you   read,   the   more   you   gain   time.   Time   is   money.   In   three   years   of   reading,   I   managed   to   gain   some   100   years   net   and,   taking   the   synergistic   effect   into   consideration,   some   1,000   years.

Having  read  the  same  book,  two  different  people  will  get  totally  different  thoughts  and  messages  from  it.  What's  more,  their  impressions  will  rather  depend  on  their  life  experience,  outlook  and  mindset  than  on  the  book  itself. 

The  message  of  the  book  often  depends  on  the  personality  of  its  reader.

Reading  is  not  about  how  much  one  can  read  but  rather  about  attention  and  understanding. 

P.S.  As  usual,  it's  quality  and  not  quantity  that  matters.  Thus,  a  person  who  understood  only  one  good  book  will  make  greater  progress  than  someone  who  read  a  hundred  of  books  for  no  reason.  And  if  most  of  this  someone's  hundred  books  are  shoddy,  this  person  will  not  be  considered  a  constructive  type  at  all.

I  realized  why  only  few  get  smarter  reading  books.  Because  books  provide  theory  and  a  theoretic  horse  almost  doesn't  pull.  There  should  be  real  life  practice  involved.  One  should  go  and  make  mistakes,  fall  and  rise  again.  Hence,  there  should  be  a  practical  skill  of  applying  theoretical  information. 
On  the  other  hand,  practice  is  weak  without  theory. 
A  balance  is  needed:  when  any  new  theory  will  be  proved  by  practice  and  the  skill  of  applying  it.

A writer writing for people is a craftsman deprived of freedom of thought. He is forced to write only what the reader wants to see from him. The craftsman is doomed to constantly think about whether the buyer will like his creation, what he will think, whether he does not violate any unwritten laws or norms.

A writer writing for himself will be interesting only to himself…

But there is a third option. It happens that a Book wants to be created, it needs to find its way into the world, and for that it needs a tool in the form of a good author. And here, I think, something interesting can turn out. Of course, there was no free will, but if the artisan is only a slave of people, constantly wondering what the owner needs, then the contact with the customer will be tighter, and his desires may be more elevated and completely unexpected. Moreover, it often happens that the book completely takes power in their hands and begins to discover such miracles that as much as breathtaking.
