Keep reading for FREE
Read through the book's index, about, conclusions, book contents & summaries that the author gives after each page quickly to get an idea about the book
After getting an idea about the book, just read it. Don't try to force yourself to understand things, just read with FOCUS.
After Superficial Reading of atleast 1 page, try to summarise the whole idea and if you miss some points, analyze the points and try to understand those as thoroughly as possible
Remembering What You Read
Imagine whatever you just read!
If you can't imagine, then try to summarise it vaguely. After that, make a mind map
Link the text to something you are already familiar with. Maybe experiences, real-life situations, etc.
Re-read and highlight the things you didn't understand after following the above two steps.
Write down everything you do in the first three steps in a blank sheet. Sometimes, that blank sheet turns out to be a good note but if not, then make notes by reading through small bits of information & also that blank sheet to make perfect notes.
There are many formats to make those perfect notes, one of them is Flashcards. Short, concise & fun! Another is mind maps, charts, linear (usually not recommended)
Don't expect yourself to read faster or retain everything. Don't pressurise yourself that you have to read a lot of stuff. Just read. For fun. As a Hobby.
1. Day Dreaming
Don't let your mind wander around to anything. Instead, let it wander around the topics related to the book. Thoughts about any idea, mind map, thought, experience, related to the book are acceptable.
Don't re-read everything. Try to remember what you just read instead of directly re-reading it
Read only the keywords instead of each & every word. Try to make thought groups, for example:
By looking for / thought groups / you force your eyes / to move faster / while maintaining / good comprehension
Instead of focusing on the words, focus on the whitespace just above the line so that you can only be able to focus on keywords.
1. Use a tracker such as a pen or your own finger to read and also move your head more than your eyes when you read the lines
2. When you start reading a new line, don't read the first three words. When you're done reading the line, don't read the last three words.
The more the field of view, the more words you can read at a time. So, try to improve your peripheral vision
Make flashcards or mind maps just after you read a few paragraphs. It's the best way to retain what you just learned.

It's really hard to read efficiently. So just researched on that topic to find out how to increase the efficiency while reading.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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!
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.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
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.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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.
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!
