Books give us new knowledge and broaden our understanding of the world. But how can you fit reading into your already hectic schedule? Start by publicly committing to reading more. Research shows that telling others you’re going to do something makes you more likely to follow through. So open a Goodreads or Reco account, and update your profile every time you finish a book. Don’t make yourself slog through a book if you aren’t getting something out of it. Think of quitting a book as a way to make room for that gem you’re going to read next. Most important, keep a book with you at all times. Instead of checking Facebook when you’re standing in the grocery line or waiting for the movie to start, read a few pages here and there. They’ll add up.
