I’ve been studying the interesting and compelling science behind why people like you don’t read more books.
I have come up with powerful concepts that contribute to you reaching your goals to read more.
Smart people read books, right? Then why are you not finishing those exhilarating books that hooked you in the first few chapters? You left them in the drawer next to you only 30% complete. Why is that?
Here’s why in a nutshell. Reading books is just tedious even with the most popular authors. The facts show that the numbers of books being left unread are climbing. Meaning, people are reading a lot less. This is due to overexposure to media, television, internet and constant activity in the world. People have gotten used to our microwave, instant gratification and immediate Google answers mentality and, therefore, have no patience for tedious, long winded reading.
1. No Access to Books?
Isn’t it much easier to sit down and flip on the television than to walk outside, start up your car, and drive to the local library or Barnes and Noble? A book store, a place where you will scour thousands of books looking for one or two that you may want to read? It’s a time consuming process indeed.
Not having your book close to you when you have down time to read will make reading less important to you. If you are seeking instant gratification, going to the library takes time and therefore the pleasure out of reading. By the time you get the book, your thoughts of reading have gone away.
2. You don't see Reading as a Reward
It’s a fact that you are one of two types of readers. Either you gain huge satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment when you finish a novel. Or, you don’t associate reading with a big enough reward for your life.
3. Who Has the Time Right?
You might think time is precious and that reading a book takes that time away. Some people save their reading for traveling on a plane, commuting on a train, long car rides or while sitting in a waiting room. And, some just see reading as taking too much time out of their day altogether, not embracing the useful, practical information gained from a good how-to book.
4. Maybe you can't afford to read?
Buying books is an expensive endeavor these days. You may not have the resources to buy the books that you are interested in. You probably find yourself buying a few books adding value to your life, but buying more would tap you out completely.
