Take out any old book you have

It is necessary to have a book in order to read. Simply take out the book you have already read and begin reading it. Do not purchase a new book until you have rediscovered your love of reading.

Make a goal of finishing a book in a month

Make a plan to finish the book in a month and count the pages now that you've taken it out. Stick to your schedule and finish the book in a month to meet your objective. Do not rush through the process; take your time.

Read one or two/ three pages everyday

Since you've set a goal to finish the book in a month, split the book's pages into daily chunks and begin reading. Do not read more in the beginning, but if you enjoy it and have time, you can increase the number of pages you read as you wish.

Try reading it before going to sleep

When reading a book, time is also a vital filter. According to studies, the greatest time to read is right before going to sleep. It also provides as a break from your stressful and exhausting day. If you read a page of a book before going to bed, you will sleep peacefully and calmly.

Keep your cellphone away

Another crucial consideration when reading a book is to minimize any potential sources of distraction. Mobile phones are currently one of the most common addictions. So, when you're ready to start reading, put your phone away, check all of your social media accounts, switch off the computer, and put your phone away.
