If you are like me you love to read, and a true bibliophile will even read about how to read. No doubt most of us have come across the classic “How to Read a Book” by Mortimer Adler, which is an excellent read but a little dry at times.
Recently I stumbled across Thomas Frank‘s YouTube channel College Info Geek and his video Read More Books: 7 Tips for Building a Reading Habit.
One of his suggestions has already dramatically improved my reading habit, and that is the simple idea of reading 25 pages a day. That’s it, just read 25 pages per day. There isn’t the pressure of having to read a book a day, week, or even a month. The beauty of this method is that it’s very manageable and falls easily into the SMART framework that Thomas Frank expounds upon in his blog article: Goal: Read 25 Pages of Non-Fiction Per Day.
I took Mr. Frank’s suggestion even further and now I read 25 pages out of several different books each day. 25 here, and 25 there, and pretty soon I’m reading more books than I did before, and I actually finish them! Give it a try and let me know how it works for you. Good luck!
