Like fellow billionaire Warren Buffett, Gates loves to read and does so often. In fact, he told the Journal that he gets through about one book a week, amounting to roughly 50 a year. Gates discussed some of his current reads, including “These Truths” by Jill Lepore and “every word” novelist David Foster Wallace has ever written.
Gates also talked to the Journal about the legacy of his Microsoft empire, his alleged ties to Jeffrey Epstein, and his latest projects with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the charity organization he runs with his wife. The profile came in advance of the upcoming Netflix documentary, “Inside Bill’s Brain,” which chronicles Gates’s life and work.
