The other day I was at a business networking event and I heard someone say: "I don't read anything unless it's going to help me improve myself or my business. That's why I don't read fiction".
I almost fell over. The person went on to say: "I'm so busy running my business that I need to ensure I have a decent ROI (return on investment) if I'm going to commit to reading a book. That's why I only read business books."
Oh dear. I was actually speechless.
