    Reading as an activity is wonderful for enhancing focus and relaxing away from the stress of everyday life. I wouldn’t read in the sole purpose of curating ideas. That seems to me to make reading a chore at the behest of your ambition rather than a hobby you enjoy in and of itself.

    I read business books and recently got in to fiction. Business books are mostly fodder. Fiction is a lot of fun.
