How to learn to read quickly and a lot?
Your best bet is to find some really interesting books for yourself. Then you will not force yourself, it will go by itself. Let it be not the most elite reading matter at first. The main thing is that you want to read every free minute: lunch break at work, in the morning 5 minutes before leaving, in the evening at least half an hour. Then at some point you will find yourself simply “swallowing” page after page out of interest.
As for fast – here Peter Camp “Speed Reading” comes to your aid. Best speed reading guide I’ve seen. As for a lot – find the genres that you like the most. You can find a book on your favorite movie and read it. The main thing is to find a book that will draw you in and then you will love reading. Harry Potter helped many teenagers.
Speed reading is a fairly developed topic on the Internet. There are many techniques and even programs, but the issue is quality. With reading, as with any other process, there is a certain “optimal” speed, and exceeding it the quality of information perception is certainly lost.
Train yourself to read is difficult. Unlike physical activities, you will not immediately see the result of your “habits” and, as a result, it is difficult to maintain the required level of motivation.
The best option is to find books that you particularly like. Without reference to “trends” and “those that are now fashionable to read.” I know dozens of people who have read what is on the bestseller shelf but have no idea about the existence of other literature. At the same time, they consider themselves exclusively erudite people.
I have been reading as long as I can remember, and my advice is to just look for yourself in books the way you would look for yourself in any other hobby. If you didn’t like one or the other book, it doesn’t mean that you don’t like reading – most likely you haven’t found the author or the genre that will make you spend a day reading books.
