How to Read Many Books in a Short Amount of Time by Jeyran Main

Having a busy book blog like this one comes with many emails and requests from authors wanting me to have a look at their work and reviewing them. Not to let anyone down, I had to come up with a plan just to be able to read the volume of books I was receiving.

I began looking at the number of words, pages and the time it took to finish each book, on an average basis. I realized that every book took around 5 hours. I also noticed that before reading the book, my Kindle would also provide me with a time frame for how long I should expect the book to finish.

I then took both information and used it in order to read one book per day.

I gave two hours in the morning and two hours before sleeping at night. I then added an hour here and there, when I had the time, during the day. This way, I got to finish a single book without stressing my eyes out or, putting any pressure on myself.

When I shared this information with a fellow author, he was super excited to use it in order to manage his load of reading. He actually insisted that I share it with you lovely followers and to let you know how it is possible.

I believe behind any intention and goal is a willpower just waiting to be activated. There is nothing you cannot do as a human being once you set your mind to it.  I encourage everyone to read and not to run away from big books just because of the volume it contains.

  1. Yes. This “metric” is a life-changer. No, you don’t have to “savor” a book at turtle speed to understand it, I guran-durn-tee you will retain just about the same amount of material by giving yourself that 5-hour “bookend.” Unless it has pictures. If the pictures aren’t any good, or aren’t relevant, then skip those and get to your final page quicker. Do try this.
