There is no shortage of recommended reading lists out there, and you likely have several books sitting on your shelf still waiting to be read.
Unfortunately, it can be a struggle to find the time to sit down with a good book. So how can we manage to get more reading done? Thankfully, the solution is not to try to increase our reading speed. With these 4 simple methods you’ll be reading more books and finishing them faster.
Here are some simple ways you can read more books:
1. Make a Plan
Whenever you want to improve on an area of your life it is wise to have both a plan and a means of tracking your progress.
If someone wanted to lose weight they would set a specific goal of how many pounds they’d like to lose, create an exercise plan, and weigh themselves regularly to see how they were doing.
Similarly, those who want to read more books should set a specific goal, create a list of books they would like to read, and keep track of their progress throughout the year.
Set a Goal
A good goal would be to read 12 books per year. That may sound overly ambitious to some who have fallen out of the habit of reading, but you could polish off a 250-page book each month by reading about 8 pages a day. Most people can read that amount in about 20 minutes or less.
