From the past two years, I have been into an experimental mode, where I am learning new things about myself. Last year, I found a new hobby and it was reading books.
I’ll be honest, the last thing I would ever think to do is reading and especially reading a novel. But over the years, I have seen a lot of changes in my lifestyle, which has influenced my mindset. My reading habit was evolved due to those changes.
It took me a year to finish a novel when I read it for the first time. But one day in 2017 when I was traveling from New Delhi to Nagpur, I found that I finished almost 50% of the novel in just 5 hours. It was the day I realized my reading potential.
However, I still didn’t make it a habit. In 2018, I decided to learn efficient habits of reading and I bought a book “How to Read Better and Faster, by Norman Lewis”.
Trust me, my reading speed improved to 2.5 times to what I was reading before and not only that but I could read efficiently.
I decided to read one novel per week and in the next 6 weeks, I finished 8 novels.
I’ll make a list of novels and books which I’ve read and I’m planning to read in the upcoming blogs.
It takes a lot to continue to journey of reading when you’re diluted to other tasks of life as well. However, I still read sometimes and whenever I do, I make sure I’m not forgetting the basics of reading.
So, to promote reading habits, I am trying my best to influence my readers, either with word of mouth or with the social media pages. Read below to know more:
