Love reading? Check out these reading hacks that’ll make reading easier, faster, cheaper, or more convenient, so you can get your book fix in.
- When you aren’t able to read, try listening to an audio book.
- Designate a specific place for reading, so when you’re in the spot, you can immerse yourself more fully in your book and others are less likely to interrupt you.
- Make sure to have good lighting where you read, since reading in low light will strain your eyes and may give you a headache.
- If your reading environment is noisy, put on headphones and play a white noise sound to help your focus.
- If you’re reading for entertainment, don’t force yourself to finish books you’re not enjoying.
- Make your own book stand from a wire hanger to give your arms and neck a break.
- Get a nifty gadget like this book light or this stand to make reading in bed easier.
- If you want to read an ebook in the bath, put your phone or ereader in a plastic bag (like a Ziploc bag); your device is protected just in case, and you can still use the touch screen through the bag.
- Ask friends and family with similar tastes in books for book recommendations.
- Sign up for the newsletters of your favorite authors to stay up to date on their new releases and book deals.
- Keep books in different locations so you always have a book to read: at work, next to your bed, in the front room, on your phone, etc.
- As you buy new ebooks, put them into a collection on Kindle or a shelf on Nook to organize your books so it’s easy for you to know what to read next. Organizing your ebooks is a cinch if you do it as you buy them.
- Do not use illegal torrent sites to get books; instead download great, free ebooks from the public domain, libraries, Amazon, authors, and other sites. Read more about where you can download free ebooks here.
- Get free, high quality ebooks from Book Cave so you can read more books than ever.
