Wanting to read more is a very commendable goal. However, if you actually want to achieve it, you should follow the tips in this post by The Tutoring Center, Katy TX.

How to Read More

Call The Tutoring Center, Katy TX at 832-437-0635 to schedule a free consultation, or to enroll in reading tutoring in Katy TX.

Set Specific, Doable Goals

One of the best things you can do if you want to read more is to set goals about it. However, simply setting the goal to "read more" won't do. If you want your goal setting to truly motivate you and give you something to work towards, you need to make your objectives specific, doable, and challenging. If you're not much of a reader to begin with, a goal along the lines of "read one book every month," will give you more clarity on what you should be doing.

Inform Others of Your Goals

A tip that can really keep you accountable with your reading goals is to inform others that you have said goals. This is because, if other people know what you're trying to achieve, two things can happen. On the one hand, they can encourage you to keep going and even give you tips on the matter. On the other, they may judge you if you don't keep up with your word. In any case, you'll probably feel more inclined to fulfill what you've set out to do.

Have Reading Material Available

Do you get bored during the morning bus ride to school? Do you find yourself without anything to do while you wait to meet a friend in the park? Does it take you a long time to sleep at night? Instead of feeling like you're wasting time in all of these situations, you can view them as reading opportunities. But, for them to become that, you will have to keep reading material near you at all times. To that end, take a book with you everywhere you go.

Read More Than One Thing

You may love sushi, but that doesn't mean that you want (or should) eat sushi every single day. Sometimes, you're in the mood for tacos, pizza, or a salad. Well, the same thing can be said about books. What you're interested in reading may change from one day to the next. So, if your brain has the capacity to read different material all at once, why not utilize it so you can reach your goal of reading more?

Explore New Reading Options

Your goal to read more may be just about finishing more books. However, you can also make it about reading more new things. For example, if you strictly read Young Adult novels, you can branch out into biographies, romance novels, academic texts, interviews, and more. Getting out of your comfort zone and reading more of different things may help you learn and discover other possibilities.

Don't Be Afraid to Quit

Yes, you should give a book its fair shot. Still, if after reading something for a while, you figure out that the reading material is just not for you (it may be boring, poorly written, or not your taste), you should definitely quit it. If you make yourself finish it, you may start dreading reading. Plus, since it will probably take you longer to go over said reading material, you will be getting in the way of your own reading goals.

Make Use of Different Platforms

Nowadays, you can take entire libraries of books with you everywhere you go. While having a physical book is still the preferred way of reading, your smartphone, tablet, computer, or other device can also help you read. Furthermore, audio books can also allow you to get through books in an easier manner. Make use of these options so you can fulfill your goals.

Share Your Reading

The final tip is to make reading a more social activity. This is because joining a reading club or talking with your friends and family about something you read can make reading even more enjoyable for you. What's more, is that sharing your reading can open you up to different opinions and interpretations of the material, which can make this an enriching learning experience.
