Some notes and links on reading

I listen to, and enjoy, the Farnam Stree Podcast and so this article about reading by its author/host has some credence to it - A Simple Plan to Start Reading More. In sum:

“It’s 25 pages a day. That’s it. Just commit to that, and then do it”

But then some helpful hints about Tricking yourself into reading more

  • Create a pleasant environment
  • Always carry a book with you (even on your regular drive commute)
  • Give up on books
  • Read a few books at a time

And this post helps with 4 memory hacks to remember what you’ve read
