Reading books is not only a pleasant activity, but also an effective way of self-development. However, in today's fast-paced life, finding time to read can be difficult.

Here are some tips to help you read one book each week. They were shared in the Telegram channel “Start Something!”.

1. Make a reading plan

Start with planning. Decide which book you want to read this week. This will help you focus on a specific goal. Often our reading list grows faster than we can reduce it, so this approach will help maintain discipline.

2. Choose a book wisely

Choose books that really interest you. Use the 50 page rule: If a book doesn't grab you at the beginning, it probably won't get any more interesting later on. By choosing literature that inspires you, you will ensure a pleasant reading process.

3. Breaking it down into small steps

Reading a large book in one week can seem daunting. Break the book into small parts, like six days, leaving one day for rest. This will make the task seem more attainable and you will feel less overwhelmed.

4. Special time

The main obstacle to reading is lack of time. Designate a special time in your schedule for reading only. It can be in the morning before work or in the evening before going to bed. The main thing is to adhere to this schedule.

5. Flexibility of schedule

Not all books have the same number of pages. If you come across a bulky book that cannot be read in a week, make up for the lag with several thinner editions. This will help you stay on schedule without harming your reading comprehension.

6. Read at any free moment

Be ready to use any free minute to read. Always have a book with you or use electronic reading devices. Reading a few pages while waiting or in transit can get you significantly closer to your goal.

7. Read what interests you

If you do what you love and learn new information on a topic that interests you, the reading process is easy and imperceptible. This is the main secret of successful reading – choose topics that interest you.

8. Use audiobooks

If you find it difficult to find time for traditional reading, try audiobooks. You can listen to them during sports, walks or commuting. This is an additional way to increase the number of books read.

9. Track Your Progress

Keep a progress log where you'll record the books you've read. Not only will this help you track your progress, but it will also keep you motivated. When you see how many books have already been read, you want to continue in the same spirit.

By following these tips, you can significantly increase the number of books you read and enjoy the reading process. Remember that reading is not only useful, but also a pleasant activity that enriches your inner world.
