Cal Newport explains how to become a serious reader. Cal explains that reading is a special cognitive activity.
Cal encourages people to train their reading.
The training regime is as follows:
Start with books that you’re excited to read: e.g., pragmatic non-fiction, memoir, or genre fiction.
Find a cool reading location/ritual *outside; coffee shop; bar; cool library).
Do scheduled interval training, 5 days a week: 10 minutes at a time. Then 15 minutes. Then 20 minutes. Up time every two weeks until you can do 40 minutes.
Once at 40, turn your attention not to more time, but instead toward working in somewhat harder books where you remain very excited to master or learn the information.
It will build from there
