There are somewhere between 600,000 and 1,000,000 books published every year in the US. But, roughly a quarter of U.S. adults (27%) say they haven’t read a book in whole or in part in the past year, whether in print, electronic or audio form, according to a Pew Research Center. And the stats are even dimmer for those who purchase books; only 44% reveal they ever finish reading a book once they started.

Some of the busiest people on the planet are avid readers. Reading a book can spark creativity, increase a person's understanding of problems and help them grow intellectually. It is also fun and very relaxing. So how do we make time to read?
