  1. Hey guys, so I want to share with you the techniques I’ve used to go from reading a book or two a month to reading two or three a week Now this is only my own experience and I don’t know if you’ll get the same results, but I’ve collected this information after months of researching about the best speed reading practices I tried to keep this post as concise and to the point as possible so I just added the most important points but it’s still a little long, so you might wanna grab a cup of coffee and go through it, or you can save/bookmark it for later WEEK 1 1) Find
  2. This article popped up in my FB page and, having read it, thought I'd offer it up for discussion. Reading literary versus popular fiction I'd say managing to understand what they're talking about is a major achievement! Love to hear opinions though
  3. Fellow book lovers, I need your help! I am currently writing my dissertation and need some help with my research. If you love YA, NA, and romance books (and have 5 to 10 minutes to spare) I would be so grateful if you could fill out my survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1AFegH5GzbD_A_FOntBupVgMAu3XjLfVadYBEibYC958/viewform?fbclid=IwAR1yIVUkcXtdNCEPbeexFbMyU7khO6NCF7fIYrzua_s93BDBRlqQuSo-yOg&edit_requested=true
  4. Found this on the internet, interesting, no? Reasons to read daily
  5. Hello! I'm a third-year Graphic Design student and a fellow book lover! I'm currently doing a project on reading for pleasure and the significance of the book and your help would be extremely helpful. The survey only contains 4 short questions, which won't take much of your time, but would be invaluable to me! Thank you! https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/8T79MRX
  6. Do you, guys, have a specific story, event or a person that made you love some special book or reading in general?
  7. I know you guys might have different opinions, but this is just a normal conversation on whether what you think is the best reading environment. I like my reading environments to be a nice quiet area, with me being relaxed and in a nice comfterable chair, or my bed. I love nobody to disturb me, and usually to have a glass of water by my side. I don't like to be in loud environments, as it makes my find focus on many different things. Loud people are not suited for my type of reading style, and especially screaming children. Post about what you like your reading environments to be
  8. Anybody feel clever? http://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/jan/23/can-reading-make-you-smarter
  9. I know, odd title for a thread on a books board but a comment on the How Many Books Can Be Read In A Year? thread got me thinking. What do you consider to be reading a book? Do audiobooks count, because you are listening to them? Is a book read on the radio (eg Book at Bedtime) considered reading? I love to be read to - and no I don't get read to - is that considered reading by the listener? I just finished reading The Nutcracker, which is one story in a book containing two stories. I noted in my records that I read one of two stories within the book because I haven't read the whole
