How To Improve Your Reading In 2023

Are you a bookworm at heart or do you find yourself only picking up a book when you’re on vacation? Not everyone has the same desire to read a book as the next person but reading can be a great skill to have and it can be a great way to always stay educated.

Whether it’s fiction or non-fiction, fantasy or true crime, there are so many authors out there that have produced a planet’s worth of books over time. Even those who are big bookworms will never get through the complete works of books made by humans over the years.

If you’re looking to improve your reading this year, here are some helpful tips worth knowing.

Set a reading goal for the year

For those that love reading but perhaps get sidetracked by life in general, it’s always worth setting a reading goal. Goals are great motivators when you tend to be the type of person that gets distracted and it’s a good way of achieving something that you perhaps didn’t think possible.

Books are a great topic of motivation when setting goals and if you’re feeling up to the challenge, you may want to set a reading goal to reach over the course of the year. For some, it might be something that you set over the space of each month.

Dedicate a bit of time to reading every day

Just like exercise, a bit of reading time every day is going to help your body - but perhaps only the brain portion of the body.

Dedicating a bit of time to reading every day is holding yourself accountable. It’s a great way to ensure you’re at least getting a little bit of reading in each day as you go through your week. Whether it’s on the morning commute or sitting on the toilet at home - there’s always time for a bit of light reading.

Look for recommendations online

There are some great resources online when it comes to books. The one bed trope is a great place for book reviews and recommendations. If you’re someone who struggles to find the right books for you, then it’s always worth sourcing the intel from expert readers.

Expand your horizons when testing new genres

If you’re looking to stretch your brain power further, then it’s always good to test new genres. You can learn a lot from reading from a variety of genres beyond just your favorites. Interested in crime and thriller typically? Try a romantic novel instead. Love your fantasy, try reading a biography.

There are plenty of books out there, so don’t limit yourself to just one genre.

Try audiobooks

Finally, if you struggle to read books simply because you don’t find yourself picking up a book, try audiobooks. They can be listened to on the go and you don’t need a physical copy of the book in your hand to engage with it.

Improving your reading should be something that’s on everyone’s to-do list in 2023, so make it part of yours!
