The biggest problem with reading is that people they take it as a task instead of focusing on the process of enjoying it reading a book is about creating a experience that leaves you eager for more.

Some tips for making the process more enjoyable are -:

  1. Choose a book that genuinely piques your interest whether it’s a thriller, a romance, or a biography.
  2. Set aside some dedicated time for reading each day which has to be done by the end of the day.

  4. Find your preferred reading style it can be e-book or a physical book or maybe even a audio-book.

How To Remember What You Read

You have read a book and you really liked it but there’s no point in reading a book if you can’t remember it recalling information and applying it to your life is the most important part of the journey of reading. Here are some tips for doing so – :

  1. Reflect and review whatever you read whenever you read a book write a review of it and to make it more enjoyable share it with the community you joined earlier
  2. Note down some important things or some really good line you read and jot it down in your notes app or your physical notebook whichever you have and then you can go back and reflect it later when you find the time.
