Bangalore: Steve Jobs was a workaholic and so is Bill Gates and others who built big empires like Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk. Though they followed their obsessions for innovations and building big enterprises, which made a difference in the world, they always found the time to stick to their reads. Given that Jeff Bezos founded Amazon as a marketplace for books, it's not surprising he reads a lot; and Jobs? He loved Shakespeare a lot and so follows the reads of others too. Read on to know what these9 tech icons’ favorite books are, as compiled by Business Insider.



#9 Amazon’s Jeff Bezos



The Amazon.com founder and CEO Jeff Bezos enjoys reading business book "Built to Last" and a fictional novel, "The Remains of the Day." He once told that he buys 10 books per month.



His favorite books Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies is by Jim Collins and Jerry Porras and The Remains of the Day is by Kazuo Ishiguro.



He told Newsweek: "If you read The Remains of the Day, which is one of my favorite books, you can't help but come away and think, I just spent 10 hours living an alternate life and I learned something about life and about regret."
