Being a reader is a life-long project, and we all want to do it well. Sometimes, it’s easy to get caught up in the parts of a reader’s life that feel insurmountable — the TBR list you’ll never complete; the library hold list you’ll never catch up on; all the amazing books you’ll never hear about, let alone find and own!
But there are little ways we can enrich our reading lives every day: small changes we can make or ideas we can try to change up our reading patterns and find new books to love. Here are forty places to start. Add your own in the comments below, or try a couple first and then come tell me how they go.
1. Wake up 15 minutes earlier than usual and use that time to read a poem.
2. Visit your library — especially if it’s been awhile — and ask a librarian for a recommendation.
3. Let go of one reading prejudice and never think about it again.
4. Read one book in a genre you think you despise.
5. Ask someone you respect for a book suggestion, and read it right away.
6. Give away the book that’s been on your TBR pile the longest.
7. Volunteer for an organization that promotes literacy.
8. Read a book that looks like it will make you feel uncomfortable.
9. Commit to a reading challenge.
10. Cull ten books from your collection and donate them without bringing any new books home.
