Tips To Read!

Jenna Claire Armstrong

Reading is one of my favorite pastimes. Nothing is better than curling up in a cozy chair with a book. However, some people have trouble with reading or have been burned by too many boring books, so here are some tips on how to enjoy reading!


  1. Figure out which genre you like. Some people like gritty action and some people like fluffy romance. While it can be fun to try something new, if you have a reliable genre, stick with that for a  dependable read. If you like cozy slice of life stories, you probably won’t also like terrifying horror stories!
  2. Have a reading spot! A good way to concentrate on a book is to have a consistent spot where you read. It can be inside or outside, as long as it’s a place you can relax and concentrate!
  3. Pick a way to read! Most people prefer physical books but it can be hard to find a specific book you want. In that case, online books can also be a great resource! If you have any kind of visual impairment, many books are also offered in the audiobook version! No matter what, there’s always a way to read!
  4. Don’t worry about the length! While you may feel pressured to read a big, long book, sometimes you just don’t feel like it. In that case, a collection of short stories would be good for you! Even graphic novels are good in case the words start swimming together!
  5. Find people to talk about it with! Talking with people about the book you’re reading can make you more excited for what’s to come! You can all freak out about the latest plot twist! You can look up online forums or join a book club!
