Read. Read. Read. An interesting article, not just the headline. Any book you find interesting. It can be big, it can be small, it can be hard cover or it can be soft.

“The (wo)man who does not read has no advantage over the (wo)man who cannot read.”-Mark Twain

The sense of accomplishment can't be beat and if you lucked out, you'll probably want to read it again. Here are a few of my favorites.

Aziz Ansari is one of the funniest guys doing stand up and with shows like his Emmy-nominated "Master of None" where he won with his partner for best writer in a comedy series he is getting his a lot of attention. I for one binge watched Master of None as soon as it premiered on Netflix. I'd recently finished reading his book Modern Romance and watched his Netflix Special "Live at Madison Square Garden."
