Know when to give up a book

If you find yourself stressing out (or yawning!) over a difficult or boring book, do give it a try for a few more pages but give up if it ends up frustrating you.

Unless you schedule reading time in your busy day, you may not be able to squeeze it anywhere between all of the other tasks already crowding the calendar.

A great way to get into reading more is to read to someone else: an elderly person or a shut-in, a friend’s child or your own son or daughter.  

Carrying a book with you at all times is a great trick to start reading more habitually.

Read a review or two online to see what people are saying and raving about or try reading the first few pages of the content and the back-cover blurb to get an idea of the narrative.

Do a bit of research if you don’t know where to start or if your previous choices of authors have been uninspiring.
