7 steps to get the most out of your reading (infographic)

The importance of post-reading

In times of information overload and web distractions of all kinds, we are fighting to find enough energy and determination to force our minds to focus on reading for as long as possible.

And we forget reading is a much more exciting, multi-level process.

To celebrate World Book Day 2017 the team from Blinkist shared on Twitter an infographic on how to become a better reader.

The visual highlights key points from a classic guide to intelligent reading, How to Read a Book, written by Mortimer J. Adler and Charles van Doren, and released for the first time in 1940.

As you will see, the process extends both to what you do before and after reading the passage of text.

This classic bestseller, revised in 1972, is still a great guide to tackling a long reading list, extracting all the relevant information and organizing your own conclusions. Be the boss of books with this effective approach to reading and understanding texts of all kinds.

Blinkist is a platform that lets read the most important insights from over 1,500 bestselling non-fiction books in powerful 15-minute summaries.
