How to read books in a short amount of time?

Having a busy book blog like this one comes with many emails and requests from authors wanting me to have a look at their work and reviewing them. Not to let anyone down, I had to come up with a plan just to be able to read the volume of books I was receiving.

I began looking at the number of words, pages and the time it took to finish each book, on an average basis. I realized that every book took around 5 hours. I also noticed that before reading the book, my Kindle would also provide me with a time frame for how long I should expect the book to finish.

I then took both the information and used it in order to read one book per day.

I gave two hours in the morning and two hours before sleeping at night. I then added an hour here and there, when I had the time, during the day. This way, I got to finish a single book without stressing my eyes out or, putting any pressure on myself.

When I shared this information with a fellow author, he was motivated to use it in order to manage his load of reading. He actually insisted that I share it with you lovely followers and to let you know how it is possible.

I believe, behind any intention and goal, is willpower and inspiration, just waiting to be activated. There is nothing you cannot do as a human being once you set your mind to it.  I encourage everyone to read and not to run away from big books just because of the volume it contains.
