3 Steps to Develop the Book-Reading Habit

obj reader lady

MY POST “Becoming a Reader of Books” probably should have been longer, but I really like that it wasn’t. In my fantasy life, I write very short, to-the-point posts. I guess you could say I’m trying to read long but write short. Listen more, say less.

A few of the things that aided my efforts to read more books:

  1. Book clubs.
  2. Reading at the same time and place each day.
  3. Tying it to an already established habit. For me, it was lunch. For months, I read a chapter every day after lunch and before jumping into the next thing.

These are things that helped me. Feel free to add to the list, if you have suggestions. (I imagine most of the people who follow my blog to be excellent book readers already and not need this post.)

    Bedtime. I climb into bed and bring a book with me – I typically can get 30 min in. However some books I simply can’t quit reading and then I don’t sleep so I have to be careful about what I take to bed. I want to find another time to read – my day feels too busy however I suspect that could be remedied by letting go of other things…the question? What to let go of!
