Eight Tips for Getting More from Reading and Books

Last year I was motivated by assignment and delivered Eight Tips for Getting More from Reading and Books to City Weekly and the Weller Book Works Textblock. During the year, I copied these tips for several persons. They’re still good so I offer them again for 2020 without my former elaborations.

Here are eight ways to improve one’s relationships with books:

Ask the most impressive persons you know which books are most influential in their lives and read those books.

Read every day.

Browse in physical bookstores where serendipity can thwart your preferences.

Keep reading when you become confused.

Read hard books out loud.

Look up words you don’t understand.

Speed up when your mind wanders.

Permit what you read to influence your beliefs.
