Hello beautiful people! Hope you’re following my #blogtober journey. Today is day 24 and I’m super pumped about this post.

A lot of times people ask me how do you read so much, how do you find the time to read etc. Although sometimes it is difficult to read leisurely at a stretch, I make sure to squeeze in some reading time every day, and that’s what I’m sharing today.

5 ways to read more books

1.Read e-books

Is it just me or do you also feel that reading e-books is a tad bit faster? Whenever I’m reading on my kindle, I’m likely to finish the book much faster.

Many people say that the fun of reading is when you feel the pages, but trust me once you get hooked onto your kindle, it’ll be so much fun. E-book readers give you time estimated to complete the book and a particular chapter, which is motivation enough to keep reading.

2. Read a genre that you like

Like we all have a personality type, we also have a reading type. Whether its fantasy, thrillers, non-fiction, or YA romance, find a genre that’s close to your heart and find pleasure in reading that. When you read books of the genre that you like, it’s likely that you’ll read faster and a lot more.

3. Start with short stories

If you’re a beginner and want to amp up your reading, try reading shorter books or short stories. This encourages you to keep reading and it will help you to read more books. Pick a poetry collection, anthologies, graphic novels, mangas, or essay collection.

Also if you’re a reader with short attention span, then short stories and short books will be enjoyable for you.

4. Try Audiobooks

This isn’t physical reading, but it does count. Having audio books as your companions is a great pastime. You can listen to them while traveling, driving, or just doing household chores. I recommend begin with something light that doesn’t need a lot of attention. Audio books are a great way to get some significant reading done in your packed schedule.

5. DNF a book

Don’t be afraid to DNF (did not finish) a book. For the longest time I was someone who couldn’t do this. But this year my reading goals included DNFing a book that didn’t interest me. Give it a try and if you don’t like the plot, character development, or the feel of the book, put it down. There are so many other books awaiting in the world, so go and enjoyyy!
