Reading inspires us all and I bet each of us wants to read. Reasons may vary from escapism to knowledge and from knowledge to entertainment. Why some of us read? Why most people cannot stick longer to book reading? Of course, there are also different reasons but most important is, as some people use to say, ‘We don’t have the nerve to read’. While others are reported saying, ‘Reading is adventurous but we can’t start a book and how in world we can read without reading the very beginning?’ Other people may have reasons like lack of time, hectic routine, and most importantly not having enough books of their own choice. Of course, these problems can help you not to read but you can mend your ways if you feel like it. No habit is as much enduring and living as book reading. A five-year-old kid to seventy-year-old man love to read if they have a habit. You may have good solid reasons for reading but how to help yourselves with a book you want to read and yet feel enervated. It, naturally depends upon the genre of books like people usually read thrilling and sensational books, detective or dark novels but other genres can be boring for some lads. So, here are some tips which will help you to gain enough courage to read the book, no matter whichever genre you choose.


Read book’s review before starting the book. It will encourage you to read or you will feel like having a reason to agree or disagree with reviews.


Acquire more information about author/authoress and his/hers remarkable works. It will ensure you that you are actually reading something worth reading.


Always read index pages. Of course, we cannot understand what the chapters are all about but now a days, index pages are great to entice you into reading.


Read the manual on that book or perhaps writer’s interview about the particular book. With this habit, you would even pay more attention to what’s in the book?


Choose a well-planned time to read, particularly for the book which is a really hard nut to crack. If you spare time you’d be forced to read.


Stick to book you have started. Give yourself some pages’ deadline and it would work wonders. Sometimes a good book is terribly bore to begin with but persistence pays off. It’s better to read one book at a time and read it well before jumping to other.


Write, keep a book and write about what you think is new and useful for you. Each genre has facts or lessons which when implemented mold us. When you write something, you learn. And this hunger for knowledge asks us to read more. That’s what a commonplace notebook does.


Read the book time and again for getting more out of a book. It’s the best and only way to get in depth of the book, to understand what the writer actually wants to convey. Second time read is more interesting.

Isn’t it odd how much fatter a book gets when you’ve read it several times? It’s if something mere left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells, when you look at the book again, many years latter, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you, like a pressed flower ...... both strange and familiar”.
