Feel like you aren’t reading enough? Wish you could get through your stack of library books before their due dates? Piles of TBR books threatening to crush you and your loved ones?
Never fear! Here’s
How to get more reading time every day
1. Always bring a book with you wherever you go. Preferably it’d be the book you’re currently reading, but with hardbacks that’s kinda difficult unless you have a huge purse and arms of steel. I’d recommend having a paper book at home and an ebook you carry with you either on your phone or ebook reader.
2. Listen to audiobooks. Audiobooks are great for when you’re commuting to work, doing housework, or exercising! I also think it’s nice to listen to a book for a little bit right before bed (see below for more on that). It’s relaxing.
3. Take advantage of waiting periods. While waiting in line at the grocery store, post office. Also, brushing your teeth, eating breakfast, etc. It takes a little practice to be able to read and also pay attention to your surroundings so you’re not one of those people who ignore the “next in line” call, but it’s totally doable!
4. Dedicate specific time each day to reading. Like half an hour before bed, or half an hour in the morning while you’re drinking coffee/eating breakfast (don’t worry about food stains). Eventually, it’ll become a habit! You’ll be blazing through dozens of books in no time.
How do you fit more reading time into your day?
