Read 100 books a year - read several books simultaneously

Keep in mind these simple tips, and you’ll be able to read a lot more books than you think you would.

For many people, the goal to read 52 books per year seems to be a big challenge.

Before having time to finish the chapter of the book (the same you were at two weeks ago), there is always one more meeting, one more mail, and one more phone call to an important client.

When you finally get back home, you’re tired so much, you fall asleep after reading one or two pages.

Obviously, you can always pick up short books to read, but are there any other ways to encourage the mind to read – and finish – several books a month?

Darius Foroux, the founder of Procrastinate Zero and the author of Massive Life Success, wrote an insightful article on Medium, where he shares tips on how to read 100 books a year.

I fully agree with Always Be Reading. Using every opportunity to reach for a book, at any time and place, is the most effective way to devote to reading a lot of time during a day.

You can read on the train or in a taxi, when you are waiting for a bus or in doctor’s office. Five minutes here, fifteen minutes there, and it may turn out you can read no less than an hour a day.

If you read 10 hours a week, you’ll read 26,000 pages a year. Let’s say the average book you read is 250 pages: In this scenario, you’ll read 104 books in a year.
