Tips for Reading Faster

Tips for Reading Faster

  1. Always have books for pleasure. If you're not interested in what you're reading you ultimately won't read at all.
  2. It's okay not to finish reading your books and switch them. Remember the more books you read, the more fluency you'll have, and the greater the enjoyment of reading leads to being able to read harder books
  3. Build up your foundation first; both on the knowledge of the topic and of the words used. It's okay to take your time reading.
  4. Build up to harder books when you get the hang of it.

Slow Readers

Many people tend to feel embarrassed about not being able to read fast enough or are made fun of when they read slow. But the fact that reading is not a natural human ability needs to be kept in mind.

Reading is a skill that we acquire through years of development with the coordination of cognitive strategies such as image recognition and linguistic pairing since reading is not a skill that is hardwired into our brains.

Constraints to Reading

Constraints to Reading

Daniel Willingham, a cognitive scientist, deconstructed the process of reading and the constraints we face when doing so such as:

  1. Not knowing much about the topic (therefore not fully comprehending what the individual is reading);
  2. Not knowing the words (therefore being unable to construct ideas due to illiteracy);
  3. And not knowing how to pronounce the words or how to sound them out, however, phonetic knowledge is much less of an issue with advanced readers.

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.

Ashley Anthony

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!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Giovanna Scalzone

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.

Jamyson Haug

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

Laetitia Berton

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!
