Give it a try and share with us whether or not it worked out for you and helped nurture your love for books!
Don’t force yourself into reading a book.
Obviously if you’re reading for school, you don’t really have this option. But if you’re trying to get back into the vibe of reading, start by finding a book that you’re interested in. There’s no reason to bother reading a book that you’re not going to like.
Pace out your reading.
There’s no reason to rush the book. If you can only commit about an hour each dya, then make it only an hour. If you can sit down for 6 hours today to read, then do that! Don’t force it upon yourself to read for hours on end because you won’t end up enjoing the book if you do that.
Think about what you read.
In order to really enjoy the book and involve yourself in it, think about it during the day while you’re out. Really analyze what happened in the information that was given to you. That way not only will you absorb the story or the knowledge, but you’ll also have your mind busy and thinking about the book as well. You’ll be psyching yourself up to read it the minute that you get home!
And there go you, with 3 easy and simple steps, you can get back into the vibe reading.
