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.

      • Have you by read “4321,” by chance?
        It’s a large book by Paul Sister, and I’ve picked it up so many times, but the size scares me away.

      • No I have not! It does feel scary when you look at a book with a large number of pages. The best way to deal with that is to assure yourself that you can always stop whenever you feel tired. Just enjoy each page as you go and stop when you have had enough.
