Reading speed is a skill that can and should be perfected. But the ability to quickly absorb words by processing basic information comes with experience, by itself. Your brain will process language and ideas the faster the more often you interact with them. So to get started, remember your main goal: do you want to add a book to your checklist, or do you really want to learn something new? Another benefit of reading is that you enjoy the process itself. Without a hackneyed philosophy, the highest goal of life is joy. Some ideas are too important, too much invested in them to go over them with my eyes. Remember that your goal is to learn, not read as many books as possible. 4.
