The Bookshelves of 20 Surprisingly Smart Celebrities (Infographic)
Most successful people tend to have one thing in common: they read a lot.
A young Elon Musk read science fiction novels for up to 10 hours a day when he was young. Bill Gates reads a new book every week. At 89 years of age, Warren Buffet still reads 5 to 6 hours every day.
However, it’s not just successful business people who read a lot—there are many celebrity bookworms too.
In our infographic below, we present the bookshelves on 20 surprisingly smart celebrities.
These celebrities read for different reasons. Some for entertainment, and others as a way to help them in their personal lives.
Lebron James has made a habit of reading books before a game. It’s his way of escaping, to take his mind off the game, and to give him a different perspective.
Kendall Jenner’s passion for reading only started in 2019 when her agent gave her book recommendations. Jenner claims that reading is a form of therapy that helps her deal with anxiety.
Blackpink’s Kim Jisoo reads to relieve stress. Jisoo doesn’t mind rereading books either; she says it gives her a different point of view every time.
So it seems that when it comes to some celebrities, you really can’t judge a book by its cover.
