Make your reading time your favorite time of day.
Have some good tea or coffee while you read, or another kind of treat. Get into a comfortable chair with a good blanket. Read during sunrise or sunset, or at the beach.

Go is a discount book store and drop off all your old books and get some discount on used books you find in the store.
It is very fun to browse through the new books people have donated. Make your trip to a used book store a regular thing.
Even cheaper than a used book shop is a l...
Tell yourself that you want to read 50 books this year (or some other number like that). Then set about trying to accomplish it.
Just be sure you’re still enjoying the reading though — don’t make it a rushed chore.
Find or create a place in your home where you can comfortably sit with a good book without interruptions.
There should be no television or computer near the chair to minimize distractions, and no music or noisy family members/roommates.
If you have children, you must read to them.
Creating the reading habit in your kids is the best way to ensure they’ll be readers when they grow up … and it will help them to be successful in life as well. At the same time, you'll be developing the reading habit in yourself.
If you turn off the TV or the Internet in the evening, you could have a set hour (perhaps just after dinner) when you and maybe all the members of your family read each night.
Or you could do a reading day when you (and again, your other family members if you can get them to join yo...
One of the best ways to form a habit is to put it on your blog.
If you don’t have one, create one. It’s free. Have your family go there and give you book suggestions and comment on the ones you’re reading. It keeps you accountable for your goals.
... if you have a good book.
If you have a lousy book (or an extremely difficult one) and you are forcing yourself through it, it will seem like a chore. If this happens for several days in a row, consider abandoning the book and finding one that you’ll really love.
Keep a running list of all the great books you want to read and add to it whenever you hear about a good book. You can keep this in your journal, in a pocket notebook, on your personal home page.
Find books that really grip you and keep you going. Even if they aren’t literary masterpieces, they make you want to read — and that’s the goal here.
After you have cultivated the reading habit, you can move on to more difficult stuff, but for now, go for the fun, gripping stuff.
Wherever you go, take a book with you, unless you know you definitely won’t be reading (like at a movie).
If there is a time when you have to wait (like at a doctor’s office or at the DMV), whip out your book and read. Great way to pass the time.
Have a few set times during every day when you’ll read for at least 5-10 minutes. These are times that you will read no matter what — triggers that happen each day.
For example, make it a habit to read during breakfast and lunch (and even dinner if you eat alone) and when you go ...

Look at social media as a treat. You might not buy an artisanal coffee everyday or get your nails done every week, but you may reward yourself with these kinds of small treats when you feel like you deserve it.

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!
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.
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!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
