Too Much of a Good Thing?

Like a big holiday meal, sometimes too much of a good thing is just too much. The same can be said for long books - say 500+ pages. Book Riot has a few suggestions to make it through to the very last word.

  • Know yourself - read a few pages before you commit 
  • Reduce distractions
  • Break up long books. Read something short and easy 1/2 way
  • Slow down - it's not a race
  • Listen - try the audio version
  • Take notes or journal
  • Read in an enjoyable, comfortable space
