5 tips on How To Start Reading More for the New Years

Hello Beautiful People,

I have heard many people saying that they want to start reading more and at starters, they do, but that only lasted a few weeks. Some would say they "weren't born to read" while some would say that they simply have no time. But what I think is that you don't find the time to read, you simply make the time to read. Reading can be fun and enjoyable, trust me on this one.

Here are some tips to get started on reading for the new years.

1 . Don't be ashamed.

Sometimes, people don't intend to read because it's not "cool" You know whats not cool? Not been able to experience the world and the magic books brings. Its like taking you to a whole new world , escaping the reality.

John Green said, "Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself.” 

2. Get a library card

Once you are committed to go to a public library, borrow one or two books.  I find that when you borrow a book, you are more likely to read it then when you buy them. This is because library has due dates for you to return the books you borrowed. Thus this makes you set a goal or a deadline. You will have to train yourself to read the book before the deadline while buying them you won't feel the need to do pretty much anything at all.

3. Join a book clubs

Book clubs usually helps you with understanding the story more in general. So when you join and participate in one, you are most likely to read the book before hand so you don't feel lost or left out.. If you don't know where to find a book club, check the local library, there will be book clubs and book evens where readers gather together to share their thoughts.

4. Find your interest

You cant be reading a book you have totally no interest in. It's like reading History textbook. Unless you like it then read it otherwise, don't waste your time. I find that when I am interested in one specific type of book, I could inhale it in one sitting. But if the book isn't my type of genre then you will find the book lying round my room for a week ! Thus, discover and explore different variety of genre, then decide what you like best and which you are most interested in.

5. Sign up for Audio Book !

Audio Book is basically a book but instead of reading it to yourself, someone else it reading it to you and the best part is, you only have to listen. I find it helpful to have audio book when your have a busy schedule. You could listen to the book while you get ready for work in the morning, you could listen to the book while you make dinner for your family, and you could even listen to it through your phone when you are driving and stuck in horrifying traffic. Its a good and easy way to get a head start in dipping yourself into the world of books. I will link the audio book website at the side bars so feel free to check that out !
