Reading is more than just an activity for recreation and contributes to a person’s overall personal development other than making one better informed. But while there are a lot of people who want to read all they can, many seem to struggle for finding time in today’s hectic life.

Experts conducted a study to find out how much time people need to read 200 books a year, and the total came out to be 417 hours. Now this may seem too much, they also found out that the amount of time people spend on social media has been found to be 608 hours a year.

The first step to reading more is getting over media addiction which is a difficult task, and these can be followed by surrounding yourself with as many books as possible. Not being too picky and focussing on reading more can also be helpful.

Trying out everything from audio books to reading on your smart phone and reading at every location possible.
