If reading for pleasure is a foreign concept to you, you’re not alone. So many people decide early on that reading is incredibly dull and not at all enjoyable. You are on holiday now, hopefully sitting on a beach or by a pool. Pick something good to read. This article tells you how.
There really is no reason not to fully enjoy it. So, if you’re willing to give reading for pleasure another go, then here are three suggestions for making the experience more enjoyable.
- Determine your preferred genres.
You aren’t likely to find much pleasure in reading if you’re reading books that don’t interest you. That’s why figuring out your preferred genres is essential for making reading for pleasure a pleasurable experience. If you aren’t sure which genres you’d be interested in, then think about the types of shows you enjoy watching on TV. Odds are, you’ll enjoy reading books from the same genre. There may even be a series of books based on your favorite TV show.
- Make the act of reading about more than the book itself.
Sure, reading a good book can be its own reward, but there’s so much more you could be doing to make the experience exceptional. To get the most out of your reading experience, push it to the next level. Start by finding yourself a cozy nook for reading, then settle in with a delicious beverage and some tasty treats by your side. Again, a sandy beach can be a start. Reading for pleasure becomes more enjoyable when adding external factors that make you happy. For example, hearing the rhythm of the surf and the like.
- Set aside any books you aren’t enjoying.
Nothing makes reading less fun, especially during summer holidays, than slogging through a book you aren’t enjoying. So, to make reading for pleasure an enjoyable experience, set aside any books you aren’t enjoying and move on to a new one. Of course, that doesn’t mean you have to give up on the book forever. You can always return to it later when you’re in a different mood. It’s also worth mentioning that many books that start slow hit their stride several pages into the text. For this reason, you should always give each book enough time to draw you in before completely giving up on it.
While reading for pleasure might not sound like your cup of tea initially, it could be a far more enjoyable hobby than you realize. After all, with countless books covering every imaginable topic, there are plenty of books out there you’ll enjoy reading. You just need to find them.
