Warren Buffett describes his day as “I just sit in my office and read all day.”
Reading more is a common ambition. But how do we do it? And what should we do with all that information once we have it?
The average adult reads 300 words per minute. Speed readers read 1,500 per minute.
But reading faster is not always the right solution to reading more. Some reports state that speed reading or skimming leads to forgotten details and poor retention. Comprehension and reading for pleasure are more important, yet bumping up your words per minute while still maintaining reading comprehension can help to supercharge your reading routine.
Tim Ferriss describes two techniques for reading faster:
The first technique leads you into the second technique.
A Pew Research study found that the average person reads 17 books a year. 19 per cent of Americans don't read any books.
The average person spends 35 hours watching TV every week, some of which could be spent reading books.
Train your brain with impressions, association, and repetition.
There are four levels of reading, each step building on the previous step.
Reading on an analytical and syntopical level will help cement the impression of the book in your mind and help develop associations with other books.
Books are an investment in a future of learning.

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.
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!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
