3 Ways to Find More Opportunities to Read

July 30th, 2013 Books/Audio/Video

Are you tired of being left out of conversations about the latest New York Times bestseller? If you love reading but you never have the chance to crack open a book, there's hope for you! While it might seem like everyone else has an ample amount of time to read, the fact of the matter is that they're just as busy as you. The key to diving into books and staying up to date on what's current in the book world is making time to bury your nose in a novel. Here are some tips for finding more opportunities to read.

1. Read as a form of entertainment
Instead of turning on the television to eliminate boredom, why not pick up a book? Pick The Brain, a self-help advice site, claims that novels can be just as thrilling as any movie you'll see on television. Best of all, this solitary activity is a great way to kick back, relax and unwind with just yourself. Don't underestimate the opportunity to do so!

2. Do it every chance you get
You might only have 30 minutes to read on the subway or 10 minutes to read while you wait in line at the grocery store, but The Wall Street Journal claims that it's critical to use every spare moment you get. If you're particularly busy during the week, these might be your only chances to get in a few chapters - don't take them for granted.

3. Pencil it in
You schedule dentist appointments and your kids' soccer practices into your date book, so why not reading? By penciling it into your agenda, you'll always know you have time to sit down with a good novel and relax at the end of the day.
