We’ve all been there. You want to start reading or make time to read but you just can’t find the time. Maybe you even start reading late at night and fall asleep within moments. What is a hopeful reader to do? You just want to know how to enjoy reading again.
How to Enjoy Reading When You Don’t Have Time to Read
Use these ideas for how to enjoy reading when you can’t find the time to read!
Read Shorter Books
Yep, reading shorter books can be a viable solution. Try reading these books you can read in one hour, books you can read in two hours, or this list of amazing children’s books (which are usually much shorter than adult books if you don’t count Harry Potter).
Maybe you don’t have time to read words on a page, but I bet you can squeeze in listening to an audiobook while driving, doing chores around the house, or even while taking a bath.
Watch Book-Themed Movies
So, you don’t have the time to read the latest best seller. It’s fine to watch the movie instead (just don’t tell anyone I said that, or they might revoke my bookworm license). You can read the book when you have more time later. A lot of new movies based on books are quite faithful to the book’s story.
Read Something Really Enjoyable
We can’t all love those “thought-provoking” tomes written by literary masters like Philip Roth. A lot of times, those books are a little boring and definitely require more attention than a quick skim. When you’re short on time, stick to books that are enjoyable and make you happy.
Read Aloud to Someone
Books often become more interesting when they are read aloud. Not only will you get into the book more, but you’ll probably make someone’s day, too.
How do you squeeze in reading when you don’t have time?
