The best way to read a book.

“If you read 100 pages a day, you are not reading at all”

“Using a pencil while reading a book to underline the important passages, is essential for the good assimilation/understanding of the story.”

“The discussion with other fans after reading a book is as important as the skill to read.”

These and some other interesting thoughts I’ve heard over the years spring up in my mind, when the matter at hand is the better ways to read. I guess there are so many of them as there are readers in the world. Some of these suggestions are preferred by many much more than others, though according to my opinion there’s something good and worthy of trying in any of the various ways to read. For example, nothing else could compare with the thoughts and discussions that could appear after reading a book in a company of like-minded (or not so like-minded) people or friends. Or when we are listening to music that’s not loud but is suitable for the book we are reading, or when we read in good surroundings like in the middle of a forest glade surrounded by beautiful flowers, nice animals, quiet whisper of a small stream, etc. I guess many readers would agree that reading at the beach of a calm sea/ocean could be even better?

Probably not all the readers would consider modern technologies as an essential part of the better ways to read (many people cannot handle laptops, e-readers very well, or their eyes tire too much after staring at the LCD screens for a long time), but the reading devices of today could really bring “fresh air” in the wonderful experience called reading. E-readers and laptops are the easiest solution for the problem to carry many books (or even a whole library) anywhere we’d like. And the weight of these amazing devices is from 200-300 g to a couple of kilograms! Using them, we could read a few books at the same time with very little efforts (I mean we could re-read some important parts of other books, while reading a similar story, or start reading another different book, if we are not in a mood to finish the one we are reading at the particular moment, etc). Besides, it’s not a problem at all to make some suitable playlists with the appropriate music for the book we are reading, with some of these devices we could use Internet to search for some important and interesting info that’s connected with the story we read and at no time at that, making our reading even more amazing and “educational”, etc.

As in some other posts/notes of mine, I must underline that I’m not the ultimate expert (in anything ;), so I guess many others could share much better reading experience and ways to read?,,,,,,
