Set Specific, Achievable Reading Goals

For starters, having a goal such as "read more" is not the way to go about it. How will you do it? What is "more"? What counts as reading? These are all questions that can arise from such a vague goal, which can confuse you and ultimately make you forget about it altogether. If you want to increase your chances of reaching your reading goals, make them specific and challenging but achievable. For example, you can make the goal to read two books a month for the rest of the year. This will give you a direction you can follow.

Let Others Know

People can be very judgmental, even if they have the best intentions. Luckily, this can be for your own benefit if you want to keep your goals of reading more. This is because, if you let others know what you're trying to do, they will keep you accountable. They will probably ask you about your goal a couple of times, they will let you know what you're doing wrong, they will share ideas on what you should be doing instead, and more. In any case, the social pressure may help you read more.

Always Have a Book Handy

During a regular day, you probably have a lot of down-time: while you're waiting for someone, when you're riding the bus, when you're trying to sleep at night, etc. However, if you always have a book with you, you can turn these idle periods into reading opportunities. For that reason, make it a point to keep a book in your backpack, by your night table, and more, so you always have something you can grab and read.

Read More Than One Thing

Your brain has the capacity to keep up with several books at once, so why not use it? As you know, you can be interested in one thing one second, then want something else the next. If you use your brain's ability to read several books, you'll ensure that you'll always have something that catches your interest to go over. Not to mention, you're challenging your brain, which can keep it growing.

Branch Out

Reading more also refers to reading different things. This means you should branch out to other reading material (magazines articles, interviews, biographies, etc.) and topics (something that may be outside your usual interests). You never know what you could find and learn throughout that quest, so make an effort to get out of your comfort zone.

Don't Be Afraid to Quit

For some reason, some people are afraid to quit books they don't like or they find boring. However, making yourself finish a book you're not into will make reading a chore, instead of an enjoyable activity. Moreover, it may take you a long time to get through a book you're not interested in, which means you could be derailing your efforts to read more.

Make Use of Different Platforms

Nowadays, you have a myriad different options for platforms to read on. While carrying a book around is still a popular choice for many, you can read on your phone, on your computer, on your tablet, and more. You can even "read" by listening to audio books. If you want to read more, take full advantage of all of the diverse ways you can do that.

Read Socially

Last but not least, you can try to read socially if you want to increase the number of books you consume. Joining a reading club, or simply sharing something you read with friends and family can make reading more enjoyable. Furthermore, you'll get different perspectives on the reading material, which will make for a more enriching learning experience.
