How to read more

- Ron Rollins Community Impact Editor

Want to up the number of books you read? Lifehacker recently published a list from Reddit that has some useful tips. Among them: “Follow your pleasure: If you want to read more for the sake of reading, then start with the stuff that gives you the most immediate pleasure. You have to get into the habit of reading before you can challenge yourself further.

“If you’re hating a book, ditch it. But if you think you’re just too easily bored, build up a little endurance. Set yourself a minimum to read, like one chapter, 30 pages, or four sittings.

“Carve out some time? Yep. In crude terms, reading more books is about spending more time reading books.”
