1. Fill The Funnel

1. Fill The Funnel

If we wanna read more books, then we need to have loads and loads of books coming into the top of our funnel.

This means when we have tonnes of books that we're checking out, and only later are we deciding, if it's the book that we're actually want to read properly.

A simple way to start doing this is to start reading summaries of the books first and filter out what really connects to you!

2. Make It Effortless

2. Make It Effortless

To start reading books, you must not feel like no, if you feel you can't read this book, it's better stop reading it.

And reading books shouldn't be an effort, if you are not comfortable with paperbacks, start listening to audiobooks!

3. The Blogpost Method

3. The Blogpost Method

There's a word that everyone beliefs 'reading a book is to read every word and every page of that book'.

But, the truth here is, 'if you grabbed the content from the book, then you can say you've completed the whole book's

I cannot say the same with fiction but, when it comes to nonfiction or self-help, it's definitely not necessary to complete the whole book.

So,start reading summaries of the books, listen to author's views and grab the most importanttakeaways.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone
