Nah, CEOs don’t do anything. Challenge all unjustifiable hierarchies. If a task or department needs a supervisor, some places can rotate the position, others may stick with one, but all decisions, democratic.

I believe so. But not an unreasonable one.

That can make some books popular but the activity of reading itself it's still tiring to a lot of people
I recommend just encouraging the reading of trash people may be interested
Comics/Manga, light novels, fanfics, etc
I thought of reading as draining until I just let myself go and gorgeous interested in reading trash like that, then reading became second nature and a effortless activity
Don Quixote was basically about how a nerd indulged fully into his autism and would create stories based on characters he read and would think of autistic situations, self inserting into his stories, etc.

Tl;dr: let autism take over

Why does reading need to be made popular? Why not just let it drift in and out of public opinion naturally? Maybe it's just because I am hyper-introverted but I don't see the hyping up of my hobby as a worthwhile end.

If you want it to be popular, be nice to people like this. Or we could make literature good again by just acknowledging it should be esoteric and have a high barrier for entry like philosophy. I cringe imagining youtubers being allowed to penetrate Phil the way they have film criticism and literature for retard “autodidacts”

More boobs. There should be more boobs on the covers. More pictures of boobs in books.

Maybe some boobs advertising for books. Some boobs in like reading videos for books. All booktubers should have boobs. You should have to suck a nipple to open a book. It should be the locking mechanism. Books should be locked for people who don't have the will to suck a nipple to open them. Books are an act of will, you know, sexy will. So this will make them more popular to the right crowd.

Boob headphones for noise cancelling. For reading, your head is hugged by boobs.

You grow boobs. Take hormones. You can play with your titties while you're reading. It's a literary activity, boobs. They look cozy, right? You can bundle up with your boobs. Cuddle with your boobs. Normal stuff. Stuff normies do. This'll make reading more appealing. Boobs.

Just. Boobs.
