Top 5 tips for those who like to read a lot

Reading and taking notes
No matter how good your memory is, you can’t remember everything you read. You never know what you might find useful-interesting facts, historical events, dates, or ideas. You can also record your impressions of the book, and perhaps after a while someone will ask your opinion on whether to read the work.

Write down interesting quotes
Quotes that made an impression are better written down. They can be useful for presentations, student papers, and articles.

Reading one book
If the goal is to read a large number of books, you can read several works at the same time. If you prefer to enjoy reading, then do not do it. I remember what I read worse, characters and events are confused.

List
Add the books you want to read to the list. We heard about an interesting new product, friends shared their impressions of the work they read – we write it down in the list. So as through week can be and forget. From time to time, review the entries and choose what you will read in the near future. When the book is read, cross it out. Such entries will help you evaluate the volume of reading, as well as the authors and genres that you prefer.

What you read is a source of new ideas
Books of all types and genres can be used for new ideas. Business literature will help you solve professional problems, and can give you new ideas. Reading journalism, you expand your horizons and learn a lot of interesting facts. Art works will help you not only spend your free time, but also determine your life principles, motives and priorities.

Today, bookstores and the Internet have a huge selection of any literature. It doesn’t matter if you like to read books online or prefer paper format. The main thing is that what you read brings both benefit and pleasure. What do you recommend for those who like to read a lot?
