很多时候我们会被一本书的厚度吓到，然后就放弃阅读了，比如《尤利西斯》有上千页。如何解决这一问题呢？我们可以试试只给定一个小目标 -- 读25页，然后每天都去完成，这样坚持一个月就有750页，一大半《尤利西斯》就读完了。
我从去年第一天开始坚持每天使用 Apple Books 阅读半小时，坚持了十个月，读完了四十多本书，比前几年都多。之所以选择 Apple Books 是因为它内置了自动计时功能，这样就能确保自己无法偷懒，老老实实地读完三十分钟才算打卡完成。基于我的经历：

Many times we are scared of the thickness of a book and then we give up reading it, for example, Ulysses has thousands of pages. How can we solve this problem? We can try to set only a small goal -- read 25 pages per day, so that we have 750 pages for a month, and a big portion of Ulysses can be finished.
I've been using Apple Books for half an hour a day since the first day last year, and I've read more than 40 books in ten months of last year, more than I have in the previous years. I chose Apple Books because it has a built in automatic timer, so I can make sure I can't slack off and read for thirty minutes before I clock out. Based on my experience:
- you can set a low goal at the beginning, such as reading for ten minutes a day, as long as you get yourself started and can stick to it.
- it's not about how much you read every day, but about how many days you can stick to it. My longest record lasted 162 days, and I forgot to read on the 163rd day, and then it became very difficult to restart after the interruption.
In the new year, I started the half-hour reading plan again, and I haven't broken it yet, and I have finished reading several books . If you also want to try, welcome to challenge my longest continuous reading days :)

The problem is, when you think about reading a book like that, even taking it off the shelf seems to generate anxiety.
The solution I devised for myself is a simple one I wanted to share. It’s 25 pages a day. That’s it. Just commit to that, and then do it.
What I have also found is that, when I commit to a minimum of 25 pages, I almost always read more.
This is how the great works gets read. Day by day. 25 pages at a time. No excuses.
