I miss reading books, but I haven’t read them in a while. How should I get back into it?

Personally, I really enjoy reading books. However, more often than not, I end up being too busy to read. I find browsing through book stores really therapeutic and I get really excited to start reading again whenever I buy a new book!

Hello @imyanaocampo ! You might want to consider e-books. NLB currently uses this great app called “Libby” where you are able to borrow e-books online with your library card. This app is great for me since it is much easier to carry around, and the borrowed e-books are automatically returned when they are due.
However, I do understand that there are some who enjoy physical books for a variety of reasons. To that, my advice would be to start small. A chapter per day could be a good start. Good luck!

What’s your favorite type of books to read?

Here’s a thread on novels suggestions in case you’re interested! Does anyone still like to read novels? - #3 by aiir

Is it a lack of time or lack of interesting books to read? Or is it more like no conducive environment to enjoy a book?

I have similar problem. In a world where 7-second videos are a thing, reading just takes too much commitment and time. I got back to reading when I started waking up 1 hour earlier every morning.

I recommend this book: The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down.
It’s just a pretty and chill book to read :sweat_smile:

I feel you. Actually what do you think about book summary apps like Blinkist or getAbstract? I feel like it helps me reduces inertia to read because it’s a summarised version but sometimes I feel fomo that I’m missing out some key parts of the book too.
