One of the benefits of reading is that it allows you to master the best of what other people have already figured out. This is only true, however, if you can remember and apply the lessons and insights from the books you read.

One of the biggest things that hold people back when reading is our desire to finish what we start. Good books don’t take a lot of effort to finish.

Skim a lot of books. Read a few. Deeply read the best ones twice.

Skim broadly to find something worth reading. Then dive in slowly and deeply. It’s not how fast you read but what you absorb that matters.

Skim new books you can immediately apply. Read old ones that offer deeper context and lessons.

While reading old books seems less sexy than new ones, they’re often a source of uncommon insights that are more valuable than newer books. As an added bonus, few people read older books.

Remember, be quick to start books and quicker to stop them.

When you read a book and don't like it, does it make you feel guilty to give it up?

When you finish a book and can't remember what it's about?

Maybe today's sharing will help you better understand how to read better and how to read better. Like it says, when you enter a new field, you need a map to help you find your way. This article today might be the map of the reading field.

Welcome to repost and thanks for sharing :)
