Today is Book Lover’s Day! Book lovers in the house have a little dance party when you see this.
Did you know that an average person can spend about 9 hours a day on social media. Which is 540 minutes a day and 3780 minutes in a week (I know what you thinking). I actually believe this number might have doubled maybe even tripled this year due to the lockdown and other factors.
I also read somewhere that on average, we also spend about 2 minutes reading a page of a book (non-technical information that is). On a average that’s about 1890 pages that could be read in those nine hours. Let’s say most books are about 250 pages long, then ideally if we swapped out every minute we would spend scrolling on our twitter or instagram feeds for a page of a book, then in that one week, we would have read about seven books.”
Now, of course with work, daily activities, possibly a host of other things no one is completing 7 books a week. Sure it’s possible, but realistically, it’s not probable. I once heard that Warren Buffet reads 500 pages a day (Yeah I know!), well if he can do that – then I’m sure we can squeeze in about 10-20 in there. Right?
Now, even as the year is gradually coming to an end, it still feels like there are so many things competing for our time that reading still falls low on our priority list.
We would probably rather be binge-watching the latest movie or series, or enjoying our nothingness (which also isn’t a bad idea).
But if are looking to read more but can’t quite seems to find the time, here are 5 tips that’ll help you cultivate the reading culture
