A reader of many different genres and a fan of the “See Also” link on Wikipedia,  I come across numerous gems.  One I want to share today is the short book “How to Live on 24 Hours a day” by Arnold Bennett of English 1000 fame.

Most of us think of living on a certain amount of money, but Bennett wrote, and I agree with him, that TIME is our most precious commodity. He offers advice on how to live as opposed to exist with the 24 hour time framework we have been given. He advises us on how to make the best use of our time and the book has increased in appeal recently with the explosion of self-help books.

The book was written in 1910 and is a bit dated, but I enjoyed it and it resonated with me as I am trying to reorder my life after a brief depressive episode. You can easily read it in 30 minutes. The book is now in the public domain. You can read it on Gutenberg. The link is below.
