Set Specific Reading Goals

While 'reading more' can be thought of as a goal, it may actually keep you from realizing your intention. This is because 'read more' is too broad of a goal: it doesn't give you any direction, it doesn't challenge you, it's intimidating, and it's not motivating at all. For that reason, if you want to set goals that you keep up with and accomplish, you need to be more specific. Set doable but challenging goals that will encourage you to work towards them. For example, if you're starting from scratch, a simple goal such as 'read 30 minutes each day' can help you start your journey and build the habit of reading.

Inform Others of Your Goals

In this case, outside pressure can be very helpful. That's why it's a good idea to inform other people (friends and family) of your reading goals. They will help keep you accountable, since they will be asking how you're doing with your goals every so often. Thinking about facing their judgement if you don't accomplish your reading goals may be enough to motivate you to crack a book open more frequently.

Have Reading Material With You

Needless to say, it can be incredibly difficult to meet your reading goals if you don't have any reading material with you. That's why it is recommended that you always carry a book around (be it in your backpack, on your smartphone, or through another platform). This way, if you're ever bored without anything to do while you wait for your bus (for example), you can put that downtime to good use and continue reading your book.

Tackle Several Books at a Time

You may think that you should focus all of your energy on one book at a time in order to become a successful reader. However, you should realize that your brain has the ability to balance more than one book at once. This can be very advantageous for you, because if you ever get bored of what you're reading at the moment, or if you aren't in the mood to read about a particular subject, you can alternate between a few other books and make progress with your goal.

Broaden Your Horizons

While you're working on the goal to read more, you should also make it a point to broaden your reading horizons. Read more of other genres that you're not familiar with and explore what the reading world has to offer. For instance, if you're constantly reading young adult novels, delve into magazines, newspapers, interviews, biographies, and more. You never know what you could learn or what you could like.

Quit When Needed

Quitting is mostly regarded as a negative thing to do. However, there's no sense in torturing yourself with a book that you have no interest in reading. In fact, continuing with a boring book may make reading a lot less enjoyable for you, which could derail you from accomplishing your reading goals. For that reason, you shouldn't be afraid to quit a book when needed.

Employ Different Platforms

You live in a world that offers a few different alternatives for you to keep up with your reading goals. Nowadays, you can carry a whole library in your smartphone or tablet. Moreover, the popularity of audiobooks has increased significantly over the past few years. This means that there are many platforms and options that you can take advantage of in order to become a certified bookworm.

Share What You're Reading

Finally, a tip that can help you stay on top of your reading goals, as well as make reading a more enjoyable and enriching activity, is to share what you're reading with others. You could even organize a book club with your friends and family. Hearing the perspectives and opinions of others on a reading material will open your mind to different points of view and interpretations.
