听起来很难是不是?

没关系,普特君可以在开头就告诉你每周读一本书的诀窍,那就是——别太把读书当回事儿了。

看到这里估计很多人就又要骂人了,你484傻?我要是不把读书当回事用得着给自己定个每周一本的目标?

普特君在这里说的别太把读书当回事的意思是,很多人把看书当作是一件神圣的事情,每次看书,好像都要空出一大段时间,找一把舒服的椅子,找个明亮的窗户,在手边放一边热咖啡,想想就是一副美好的画面呢。

然而,很多时候,我们并没有这样一大段一大段的时间,读书也不该是这么“隆重“的事情,它更应该像润物细无声一般,一点一滴细细的融进我们的生活,成为我们的习惯。


Don't read before bed, read before work

在上班前读书,而不是睡前读书



Most people keep their reading on their nightstand. If you read at night, you probably only get through a few pages before you get sleepy. Instead, I recommend reading in the morning. Even if you're not an early riser, use the time you spend checking Weibo and Weixin in bed to read a couple chapters.
很多人都喜欢睡前在床上看书,但是在晚上看书,可能只看了几页就困了。与此相反,我建议大家在早晨读书。即使你不习惯早起,但把你赖床刷微博和微信的时间用来读书也能读个好几节呢。


Take advantage of your commute

利用乘车时间阅读


If you take the subway or bus to work,you can use these time to read. A half-hour commute can easily turn into five hours of dedicated reading time every week—enough for most people to read an entire book.
如果你每天都需要乘地铁或公车去工作,你可以利用在车上的时间来读书。每天一个半小时的交通时间,每周至少就会有5小时的阅读时间了,对很多人来说,足够读完一本书了。


Read on your phone

在手机上阅读



Before you tell me how much you “enjoy the smell of print books“ like some kind of psycho, let me try to sell you on the convenience of reading in the Kindle or iBooks app: you'll always have your books with you, and most importantly, you can always get through a little reading in those lost minutes of the day—waiting in line for coffee,during commercial breaks and so on. Those pages add up fast.
别说你有多喜欢“纸质书的油墨味道“,跟个深井冰似的,Kindle或者手机电子书有多方便你们难道不造吗?重要的是,你永远可以把书带在身边,可以利用那些不起眼的零碎时间来读书——在咖啡厅排队啦,电视的广告时间啦之类的。这些零碎时间加起来可够你读的。


If a book sucks, stop reading it

书太烂,就弃了吧



You don't have to commit to a book that drags. In fact, it's more likely to make you quit your reading habit. Sure, you might feel obligated to finish a book you spent $15 on. But think about it this way: if it's going to be another four or five painful hours to finish it, you can afford to put it down.
你没必要非得读一本不喜欢的书。事实上,读自己不喜欢的书反而会让你放弃自己的读书习惯。对,花了大价钱买来的书不读好像说不过去,但你要换个酵素看:如果要花另外4、5个痛苦的小时去读完,那你不是更亏了吗。


Do more than one book at a time

同时读多本书


I'm usually reading several very different kinds of books concurrently: a novel, something nonfiction, and maybe a comic book. That way, when I sit down to read, there's always something that fits the mood I'm in. When I know I'll have an hour to read, I'll settle into the novel; maybe after a particularly grueling day at work, the comic book makes more sense. Basically, always be in the middle of something ambitious and something easier, which will ensure there's a book for however you're feeling at the time.
我经常同时读好几本不同种类的书:小说,非虚构类的散文,或者漫画。这样,每当我想坐下来读书的时候,就总有一本适合我情绪的书可以读。如果有一个小时的时间可以用来读书,我会拿起小说来读;要是经历了漫长劳累的一天,漫画书就更适合啦。基本上,既要读有意义的书,也要读一些轻松的书,这样可以确保你在不同的情绪下都有想读的书。


Keep track of what you read

记录你所读的书


Keeping a list of what you've read will give you a sense of accomplishment. You can use notebooks, but honestly, it's just easier to jot books down in your phone's app. Also good: get into the habit of keeping a list of books you want to read next.
把你读过的书记录下来会给你一种成就感,你可以用笔记本记,不过老实说,还是用手机app更方便一些啦。你还可以把你想读的书也记下来,这个好习惯也会更好的帮助你。
