There are a number of you brilliant bloggers and readers of posts, who enjoy reading books.
Reading helps our vocabulary, our writing, our creativity, and can help us destress.
I thought today it would be fun to think of ways that may help those of us who want to work on reading more. 🙂
1. Limit Your Electronics
I’ve found when the power goes out I get a lot more done, and reading is something I turn to. Limiting computer time, t.v. time, and smartphone time all help open up time frames that can be used for other things.
2. Circulate Your Books
Bookstores, libraries, and rearranging your bookshelf are all ways to make sure you are finding new material to read.
3. Book Club or Book Buddy
When you have other people who can share in reading the same book as you, it can help you stay committed, especially if your problem isn’t with the book, but managing your time.
4. Pick Favorites You’ve Read Before
Not all readers enjoy reading something more than once, but I happen to love rereading books. It’s a comfort because I already know I love the story, and the characters are familiar to me.
This is also a good way to see what you like about the book, the writing, and characters, especially if you are a writer.
It may also encourage you to find new books by the author.
5. Bring A Book With You
I had a friend who had two different books she carried in her purse, it was a nice sized purse. Make sure that you are able to read wherever you are. This comes in handy when you are delayed when out in public.
What have you found that works for you?
