Reading is something many people enjoy, but sometimes it can be hard to find the time to read. If you have ever found yourself thinking you should read more but never do, these three tips will help you reach that goal.

1. Read what you love. Stick to topics and genres you are interested in so that you actually enjoy reading regularly. Once reading regularly becomes a normal part of your life, then you can think about branching out into new territory.

2. Give up on bad books. If you pick up a book and it doesn’t engage you, move on. There is no need to force yourself to finish a book you are not enjoying. Instead of viewing this as a failure to see things through, look at it as another chance to find a book you do like.

3. Keep your book with you. This can be especially helpful if you have trouble finding the time to read. With your book always at hand, every moment of downtime is an opportunity to get some reading done. When you have a few moments free at work, pull out your book. While you wait for an appointment, read.
