5 Easy Ways to Read More Books

This past year, I have read more books that the last whole decade combined. (I am not sure if that statement is factually accurate, but I am trying to make a dramatic point!) I share which book I am reading on Snapchat often. Some of my readers asked me how am I making time to read, so I thought might as well share the answer with everyone. 

1. Pick short and easy read - If you are new to reading then start with short stories, or a book of your interest which isn't too long. Finishing a book quickly will motivate you pick up another one, provided you enjoyed your first one. 

2. Choose a medium that works for you - Some people prefer e-books while others (like me) prefer a physical book in the hand. On which ever side of this choice you are on, pick one and carry it with you at all times. 

3. Carry a book when you travel/commute - If you use public transport, use that time to get your reading in. Buses, metros, or when I am a passenger in a long car ride - are all places where I open up my book and get reading. 

4. Read while you’re waiting - Waiting for a friend who is running late for lunch/coffee, waiting at the doctor's office, waiting for the flight to board - all good times to read. 

5. Read before you go to bed - This is when I get maximum reading in, right before I sleep. I try and keep aside 30 minutes to an hour to get some reading in with the goal of finishing at least one book per week. 

Do you enjoy reading? Anything you would recommend?


  1. Kudos to you for getting in so much reading. I'm making a plan to buy all my Nook books in hard cover or paperback form. Ever since last year, I stopped buying e-books because I realized that I preferred the real deal. Just started reading Ready Player One this week!


  2. reading right before bed is what i do..and this year i have read little bit more. i go through phases where all i want to do is curl up and read..but some days, i dont want to strain my eyes anymore. such is the adult-life..hehe

  3. Reading before bed is what I generally do, but somehow haven't read much this year. I need to get back to it.
