The habit of reading books is a much cherished and wanted habit but how do you develop it?
Here are some tips!
Tips To Develop The Habit Of Reading Books
Pick A Language You’re Comfortable In
Contrary to the popular belief, there’s a world beyond English books. Regional literature is much more intense, deep and entertaining. Whatever you’re looking for, you can find a book about it, a well-written book in fact, in your regional language.
Why regional language? Because you’ll be more comfortable reading books in that language. You will fly through the books and just develop habit of reading books.
2. Pick A Genre You Like
Think of the stories you like. Do you like romance? Horror? Thriller? Non-fiction?
Why do you need to do that? Because, if you’re reading something you like, you have a higher chances of continuing it.
3. Read 10 Pages At A Time
Why this number? Honestly, it’s a random number. Minimum amount of pages you need to read. Why not more?
Here’s the thing – when you are working on developing the habit of reading books, you want to go easy. Don’t strain yourself. Don’t try to read too much. One step at a time.
