Slight Absence

Greetings to all readers!

I haven't blogged much lately because of a minor illness. But I'm recovering now and should post something by this weekend. Hope everyone is doing well.

All the best,

Edgar

Good to hear you are getting better.

Off topic -

For someone like yourself who has got into the routine of reading tons of books, please could you share any worthy advice for developing good reading habits.

I would love to read more. Obviously poor self discipline is letting me down. I've purchased many books and of course I've managed to get through some of them, although retention is a bit of a problem, so finding myself rereading the same book is quite common. Some books remain half-read and what has been read, forgotten, others not even touched. Help! ;-)

Thanks.

Don't feel too bad if you don't remember everything. Most of us will not recall all that we've read. I did a lot of extra reading as an undergrad and grad student. Now most of what I peruse is out of sheer necessity.

I would recommend that you choose books which are interesting to you, take notes on what you read, think of how it can be applied in your life and talk with others about what you're reading. I would also say that reading a few books at a time beats trying to finish plenty at one time. Hope this advice helps.
