Not even close Peter Mohylsky but I'm curious as to how Buffett defines a page and actually reading it. I read the daily paper completely and that may be equal to 100 pages of double spaced type on a standard sheet of paper and then of course there is all the on line reading. Does reading your question and the responses added up to a page or two???? I don't see a benefit to reading 500 pages for the sake of reading 500 pages... "I gots betta thins ta do".

NO THANKS! .., being that hyper-focused (I understand he spends 80% of his day reading), in my mind, makes no sense for the high majority of folks. 

I am happy there are those who are hyper-focused.. but I certainly do not envy or aspire to be one of them.

You mean just anything? And 500 pages of that? Cripes, that doesn't make sense.  I believe in targeted reading like my contracts--I know a lot of agents just fill in the blanks. I do a lot of research on the web. Probably if I add them all up during the day, it's probably a chunk.

Do FaceBook pages count?   (I'm joking)  To broad a definition; what is a "page" these days?  It is like someone still trying to write "business days" on a contract!  Businesses are 24/7 these days so that no longer cuts it.  I need specifics.
