4 Resources & Tips That Will Help You Read More
- Books can get expensive. A great way to save money, while still reading as much as you want, is to utilize your local library. By having a library card you’ll also have access to apps like Libby and Hoopla. These apps bring the library to you by letting you borrow ebooks. How awesome is that?
- If the books you want to read are older, I personally love using ThriftBooks. Using this site you’ll be able to buy used books at low prices. I’ve got three books for only $12 before.
- Don’t have time to read? A great solution to this is to try audiobooks. Audible is a popular option for audiobooks. By listening to your book you’ll be able to read throughout your day. If you have a long commute to and from work, this is a perfect option for you.
- Another great way to read more in the new year is to join a book club or a reading challenge. We hosted a reading challenge in 2019. Did you participate in GenTwenty’s Reading Bingo Blackout Challenge?
These are just a few of the many new books coming in 2021. Which ones are you looking forward to reading? What books are on your 2021 To-Be-Read list?
