How to Read More This New Year

Set Doable and Specific Reading Goals

First and foremost, you need to set doable and specific reading goals for yourself. This way, you will feel motivated and will have a clear direction to follow. For that to happen, however, you should ensure your goals are specific and doable, so as to avoid confusion and an overwhelming sensation. An easy to goal to start with would be to read 10 pages each day. After you get into the rhythm of things, you can increase your daily goal.

Enlist the Help of Others

Sometimes, the sheer idea of being mocked by your friends and family can be enough of a motivation to guarantee you'll keep up with your reading goals. For that reason, you should turn to others for help. If they are aware of your goals, they will ask you about them. The outside pressure may keep you accountable, which will increase the chances of you reaching your goals.

Have Reading Material With You

What do you do when you're waiting for your bus to come, when you're in bed before sleeping, or at any other chance when you have downtime? You probably look through your phone. Why not substitute that habit with a reading habit? To that end, it's necessary that you keep reading material with you at all times, so you can access it easily whenever you have downtime.

Read a Few Books at Once

For some reason, some people think that you can only read one book at a time in order to enjoy it. However, this is far from the truth. As a matter of fact, your brain has the ability to keep up with more than one book (just as you can keep up with different TV shows). You can take full advantage of this and read several books to reach your goal. This way, you can read one of your books depending on your mood.

Explore New Reading Material

Guess what? Fantasy books aren't the only thing you can read! You can read news reports, interviews, biographies, historical novels, and plenty of other reading material. As part of your goal of 'reading more', you should also read a more varied array of material. You never know what hidden treasure you could find that could completely open your mind to a new world of reading material.

Don't Be Afraid to Quit

Quitting is often seen as a taboo (be it with books or with anything else). However, this reading challenge is meant to be for your enjoyment, so what's the point of carrying on reading a book that doesn't interest? On the contrary, forcing yourself to read can make it all seem pointless. So, whenever you encounter a book you don't like, simply close it and put it away.

Read on Different Platforms

A great tip to make reading more available for you is to read on different platforms. Nowadays, you can have a whole library of books in your phone, your tablet, or your computer. Moreover, you can even 'read' books through audiobooks. Not to mention, there's always the foolproof platform for reading: physical books.

Share What You're Reading

Finally, you can share what you're reading with others. You can create a book club or simply talk to your family and friends about your books. Voicing your opinions and hearing other people's interpretations will open your mind significantly. Not only that, but it will make reading a social activity, which can make it more enjoyable.
