She dazzled us with her outstanding performance in the recent live action remake of "Beauty and the Beast." But it's not just her most recent character, Belle, who loves to read (or her claim to fame, Hermione Grainger, for that matter). In real life, Emma Watson reads just as much, if not more than the fairytale character in the yellow dress. In a world where the reading of actual books has mostly gone out of style, there's something refreshing about Watson's love of books. Perhaps that's what makes her so charming—and smart—as a person, too.
In fact, if there's a sure link between the smartest and most successful people around the world, it's most likely their love of reading. According to refreshleadership.com, the average CEO reads anywhere from four to five books per month. That's a whole lot more than the rest of us. So take a page from Emma Watson's book (pun intended) and pick up a book! If you're at a loss of where to start, check out this handy list of every book Watson has ever recommended.
