How to Read 30 Books in One Year

Reading a book can certainly be a struggle when TV shows, movies, and social media compete for our time and attention.

Reading the right book(s) can make you smarter, help improve your decision making and be a great source of entertainment.

As I study people who are successful in business and life, I look for common denominators.

I found that many successful people are avid readers; regardless of industry, upbringing, demographic, etc.

Leaders are readers.

Here are three ways to help you read more:

1. Have multiple books going at the same time

This keeps you in the flow of reading as your mood changes throughout the day/week/month.

I am typically reading three-to-five books in different genres.

I move around between: business, christian inspirational, documentary (biography), finance, and leadership.

Find genres that you’re interested in and keep a book open in each one. This way you don’t miss a day or reading, regardless of your mood.

2. Set a realistic daily goal

My daily goal is to read at least one chapter a day.

Most books are 12 chapters long. Therefore, if I read one chapter a day, I can successfully read 2+ books a month.

The key is to keep it simple. One chapter a day is a reasonable request in this ever-busy world that we live in.

3. Hardcover books + E-books + Audiobooks

I used to think there was a battle between which format would win out.

Instead, I changed my perspective and took advantage of using all three ways to consume content.

As Mark Twain once said, “The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them.”

Be sure to take advantage of these useful tips to become smarter and improve your decision making!

Take a look at my library to see every book I have read since 2011.
