If you don’t have a book on hand, it’s hard to read a book. So take one with you wherever you go. This may be inconvenient if you don’t carry a bag or purse around all the time, it is recommended an e-reader such as the Kindle and its associated apps.
If you're training for a marathon, you usually keep track of how many miles you're accumulating, and how much time you're spending pounding the pavement. If you want to read more, the same type of documentation can help.
I use Goodreads to keep track of my reading adventures. Its website and app let you update your progress as you make your way through a book, and log the books you've finished.
It sounds obvious, but it works. If you have a deadline set to finish a book, you’ll make sure you find the time in your days and nights to finish the book on time. It creates a healthy deadline that will do ultimate good to you. Book club meetings are a great place to be engaged in apart from your work meetings.
Life is too short. If it doesn’t feel worth it to you and you’re not having fun with it, there’s absolutely no shame in not finishing a book. You are not reading books for your curriculum.
It's okay if you prefer classics over productivity books. A book that interests you is good for your own cognitive development. Don't let people harsh your buzz about something you like.
There are a lot of times during the day when we can read a nice little chunk of narrative. Use your lunch break or bathroom break. You’ll be surprised how many reading opportunities there are in a given day, once you go looking for them.
Make good use of audiobooks while you exercise. It is good time to listen to the fictions.
Creating a routine where you read everyday before bed will help you achieve your bookworm goals. Use books to replace the unhealthy pre-bed screen time. The books that you read at night also have an influence on your subconscious mind so read meaningful books for impact.
People who love books really love hooking up other people with reading recommendations. They live for it, in fact, and are often quick to loan out their own fast-thumbed copies. When a book delights you or makes you feel something significant, you generally want to spread that to others.
Multitasking is great for some things, but when it comes to books, not so much. It takes away from the momentum you feel when making your way straight through one story or nonfiction narrative.
Finding a quiet place to read can increase concentration. The best place to read obviously a library but making a nice cost place in your room also helps a lot.
Lastly, make reading an enjoyable process. Couple with something you love like a cup of hot tea or even some whiskey.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
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 interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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.
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!
