The lack of time is the most common excuse we use for not reading more, but your busy schedule shouldn’t stop you from making time for this hobby. Our brief guide is here to help you carve out moments in your day to pick up a book, no matter how busy your schedule is.

Right Book

It’s tough to get into reading if you’re picking the books that don’t interest you. Do some research and make your personal reading list of books that you can’t wait to pick up, instead of focusing on books that everyone “should” read.

Make Use of Your Downtime

No matter how packed your schedule is, you can always use 10 or 15 minutes to squeeze in some reading, whether it’s while you’re waiting in line or commuting to work.

Set Your Goals

If you’re a goal-oriented person, setting a reading goal will inspire you to stick to your plan, even if it’s something simple, like reading 10-15 pages a day.

Established Routine

Discipline will sometimes be the only thing preventing you from breaking your reading goals. That’s why it’s important to establish a routine that works for you, and set some time aside to read a chapter or two.

Different Formats

If you don’t feel like carrying a physical copy around with you, reading books on your phone or Kindle is always an option. You should also give audiobooks a shot because you can listen to them when doing chores.
