How to be an effective reader?

Have courage and be kind

Books are an important part of our lives. No matter how much we develop in our technical sides, books still offer us the wisdom which technology can’t.

Reading has several benefits for us from sharpening our communication skills to broaden the base of knowledge; reading plays the lead role in our lives.

But reading is one thing, and compelling reading is another.
Just reading a book or any piece of information is not sufficient, properly absorbing the essence and the information conveyed in each line is what matters the most. Just reading a book is not enough, remembering what the book offered is equally important.

But how can one become a competent reader?

Well, let us discuss the various ways in which we can become an effective reader.

  • Proper Selection of the reading material

The first step for effective reading is understanding your current level. Don’t’ start with a very hard book. Start with a book that matches your current level. Read those books for a certain period and once you become comfortable with them, upgrade to higher levels one.  

  • Note  down  the unknown words

While you are reading, you’ll come across several words, completely strange to you. To understand the true essence of each line, it is essential that you know the proper meaning of each word. While reading note down all the unknown words and look up in the dictionary for their meaning. If you learn the meaning by writing them down, you’ll remember all such confusing words in the long run.

  • Reading Environment

Another very important factor which you should keep in mind is a proper reading environment. Reading is a form of meditation; you need to have a relaxed atmosphere to ensure useful reading. Cut off all the connections from the social world and focus on the book, to ensure that the book gets imprinted in your mind.

  • Search for a wider range of books

Once you’ve mastered the basic reading skills, now its time for you to broaden the base of your reading. Access books from your local library or visit a nearby book shop for books, suitable for your interests. The more you read, the better your skills are sharpened up. Reading provides us with wisdom, something which cannot be earned from elsewhere.

  • Make reading as your daily habit.

The more you read, the more wisdom you acquire.
