how to read more during the summer

Copy of why hello there!

Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! Today’s post is going to be all about how to read more during the summer without missing out on the exciting and warm summer days.

Let’s get started!

Read Outside:

A great way to spend some time outdoors is to read outside. Reading outside is really relaxing because you can enjoy nature and enjoy a good book.

☆Bring books with you everywhere:

The wonderful thing about putting a small paperback book into your bag is that you always have a chance to read. Waiting in line? Pull out your book. On a car ride? Pull out your book. Eating Lunch? Pull out your book. The possibilities are endless.

☆Audio Books:

Audiobooks are great for when you’re on the go during the summer. Whether your hanging outside, at the beach or adventuring in a new found city, you can always pop in your earbuds and listen to a great story.

☆Read graphic novels:

Graphic novels are fun and can be easily read in under an hour. Plus, lots of graphic novels have cute summer themes.

how to read more

Copy of why hello there!

Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! I am so glad you are here. If you didn’t know, I am a HUGE book lover and I love to read. This year, I have already read 50 books so far, which is kind of a lot! So in today’s post, I wanted to share my tips on how to read more books!

But before we get started I want to share some exciting news, My Friend, Jo from The lens and The hard drive and rebranding her blog and starting a new one!

Unfortunately, I was too busy to join her blog tour, but I recommend looking out for the blog tour posts because they look really interesting!

lets get started

1.use Goodreads!

Goodreads is a really great way to not only track the books you have read but also find new books. Goodreads is a little bit outdated, but I really love using it. I always find new books that I have never heard of and I can see what some of my friends are reading

2. Read different age-ranged books.

I think that it can be easy to get caught up in being too old to read certain books, but honestly your never too old to read a book. Just because you are a young adult, doesn’t mean you can’t read picture books. Just because you are a teen doesn’t mean you can read children’s chapter books. Sometimes when I don’t feel like reading a long and deep book, I read a book aimed for a younger person, because its easier to read than other books.

3. Try e-books

Now I am not a huge fan of ebooks but they are really great if you’re on the go. It’s great because you can have multiple books to read without having to take your books everywhere.

4. Audio Books

Audiobooks are awesome because you can listen to them almost all the time. On your way to work, while you’re doing school, while you’re working out, while you’re just going for a walk or anything else. Dramatized AudioBooks are really fun because they are filled with sound effects and interesting voices.

5. ReRead books

Rereading books counts just as much as reading a book you have never read before. I really like rereading books that meant a lot to me during my childhood and see what it means to me now. I also recommend reading books that you didn’t like before. Maybe now you can relate more to it, or it might make more sense.

6. Have fun

Reading doesn’t have to be boring. Make sure to read something that you like every once in a while and try to pick something fun and exciting to read!
