How to start reading Books?

Do you go blank when some one talks to you about books or book related topics? At that moment, do you feel like ‘I should also start reading from now on wards’ and then totally forget about it?

Happens most of the time, right? Then why not start it today? 

Want someone to push you? Well, this article will do that job πŸ˜‰.


So here are some points to consider before planning your reading journey.

1.Stop giving excuses

‘I don’t get time to read’, this is a major excuse every person has for not to start reading. Seriously !!! Not even a half an hour in the weekend? Yes, re-think !!

2.Decide yourself

You know yourself better. If you feel reading is of no benefit to you, then no one can help you. You are free to spend your time scrolling your social media feed for hours and hours. So decide yourself whether or not you need a change in your life.

3.Talk to a friend who reads

There will be at least one friend in your circle who really reads. S/he is the one who will give you the first idea regarding what to start with. You can ask for some book recommendations. But remember, at the end, choice should be yours.

4. Read about reading

Now if you have read till here, you know what I actually mean. If something inspires you to start reading or motivates you to read better, you should keep reading such stuffs more and more.

5. Start small

Always start with a small book. That small, which you can finish in one sitting. If you go for a big book out of excitement and cannot finish it within a short period, you are never going to pick your second book.

6. Choose a book of your language

Reading never means it should be an English book. Your first book should be the one which you are comfortable to read and understand throughout.

7. Do not compare

Do not compare yourself with others. When you have decided to start something, go ahead with it. You may find people of your age or even younger ones who read far more than you. Never mind. It’s your journey and you are on the track. Congratulations!!!

Have fun..


Well, these were some of my views on how to begin a reading routine. So which Book do you start with?

        1. I would every person should read atleast one book a month… Never mind what book it is.. It is not necessary that every book will increase our general knowledge.. But atleast it will surely increase our vocabulary.
