If you want to make your free time effectively, try to read books. That is the reason why we recommended you read books in the previous post.
Now let learn more about it!
You generalize the initial concepts and its content in the book. For those who are gifted, just by skimming has grasped the essential things like the main idea, the main thing. When skimming, it is possible to skip some pages, paragraphs, or stop at one-page number, paragraph. This reading is used when reading to understand a problem that has been prepared, needs further clarification and confirmation; or find different expressions for a given problem.
Focus reading (or partial reading)
A method of reading paragraphs, sections that have been pre-selected to focus energy and time on the necessary content, for a prepared job.
Read the whole book but don’t ponder it carefully
This reading is intended to generalize the entire album rather than delve into the specific content. You should read without skipping a page and not pausing to ponder at what content but just grasping. That was discussed, and to what extent the table was. With books we do not know trends, ideas, values can also be read in this way.
Read the content of the book
This is the essential reading, the most necessary in self-study to comprehend the content of the book. Each material, each issue is examined thoroughly, compared with knowledge, experience, and other writings on the problems mentioned in it. The thought contents of the book are evaluated, criticized, and fully understood by the readers.
In the same way as the whole reading or skimming, the reader completely follows the author’s lead, accepts it completely, takes it as dogma; recognize and consider problems with the author’s eyes.
A reading that when reviewing the book ideas mentioned, readers always collate, evaluate it. Any acceptance or opposition is read based on appreciation and comparison with knowledge and experience; be aware, according to the worldview, your feelings. From that awareness, conclude necessary for the reader himself.
Only exploit content, book ideology at an acceptable level or have general criticism but have not shown the book thoroughly. When reading entertaining books, this way of reading is appropriate, with minimal effort.
A reading that requires an in-depth study of the book’s content to fully understand and comprehend critically the ideas mentioned in the book. This is also a critical reading used in self-study.
Each of the above reading ways can cater to different reading purposes and types of books. For scientific and technical papers, reading for study, research must be read proactively, brooding deeply, going into the content of each issue in the book. Thus, the more clearly you need to have a clear purpose of reading before you start reading.
Reading science books for study and research, you not only read once but sometimes have to read many times to achieve the set goal. Therefore, people also divide the reading into the first reading and keep reading.
First-time reading only gives you the basis for guiding in-depth reads to achieve results. It is from the first reading. You can see the content that is important and necessary for you. The next time you read it, you need to focus on it. Each time, the author explores the content of the book more deeply, determines what needs to be learned for the next reading, and narrows the scope of the translation. So on until you understand the book, complete the purpose of the text, the reading will stop. V.I. Lenin advised us: “After the first reading, make notes of any unknown or unclear places to return to read the second, third, fourth time …”.
Positive thinking when reading
Reading books without positive thinking is just a waste of time. Positive thinking when reading is always visualizing the ideas in books into symbols, images in mind; collate, compare them with each other and with existing knowledge. From that, we can discover the main, the non-essential; essential and non-essential, conclude oneself. On that basis, you will have a new view, a full look from a new perspective and a unique quality.
Reading with positive thinking is through which to draw something from the content of the book, supplementing what knowledge and experiences for yourself. One-way reading should be avoided, lazy to think, lazy to take notes; Passive reading, accepting all, memorizing machines.
If you are always thinking when reading, you will feel that you really “grow up” through every page of the book.
Pay close attention when reading
Focusing attention is the effort, trying to direct the whole mind continuously on reading to think thoroughly, think positively, and remember what is learned when reading. This is a difficult job, requiring you to have a passion, have a clear purpose and purpose.
Don’t get distracted from the content of the book; do not pay attention to trivial details such as printing style, words. Try not to let other things. Outside influences distract the thought process while reading. When you have a problem that is difficult to understand, do not be discouraged. Please try to think or record to find out later.
In doing so, the reading is useful.
Train to have reasonable reading techniques
Reading techniques include organizing, identifying reading methods, and reading operations. The organization of reading is primarily the arrangement, arrangement, and assurance of favorable conditions for compelling reading.
- You should try to choose a suitable reading place so that you can focus high and continuously.
- Avoid noisy places. The light is always changing or too dark.
- A place to read should also be airy, clean, and tidy.
- Do not read books lying down, easy to affect memory. It is best to read at the writing desk, sitting comfortably, keeping the book at eye level.
- Pens, notebooks and other necessary tools to be beside, so that when needed, they can be taken immediately.
When reading, you should note the following:
- Read by my eyes and brain, not by mouth.
- Avoid reading back and forth too much.
- Vertical eye movement when reading.
- Reading at variable speed: Any important segment, read slowly, carefully read; If it doesn’t matter, scan it, skim it.
- Try to understand the meaning of the whole paragraph; do not pay attention to words, sentences.
- Practice reading quickly, grasping, and promptly grasping the central, essential of the problem presented in the book.
You should practice regularly, gradually increasing to reasonable reading speed. V.I. Lenin read books like books but still fully and deeply grasp the content of the book. You need to try every step to be able to put your eyes on the page and immediately capture the spirit of an entire paragraph.
Need to practice judgment when reading. If there’s a purpose of learning to resolve or affirm something, glance at the article about it.
However, it should be understood that fast reading is not quick, devouring text. Such interpretation is only harmful. Quick reading is grabbing fast, accurate, and full content, rather than eye-catching on words.
To practice reading speed, you take a book, choose a page, or a whole section, and scan it. While you read, trying to grasp its contents. Then you think about what the content is. Do it again to determine if the content you just captured in the previous reading is complete and accurate. Next time, try to improve the reading speed than the last time. Read a few more times until it confirms the full and precise content of the reading.
By doing so, you can gradually improve the reading speed, and control the quality of reading corresponding to that speed. When you have a satisfactory reading speed, you need to practice regularly, regularly read books so that the skills you have trained can not be lost.
Record what you have read:
- Compelling reading is shown in the record results. Reading indispensable notes.
- Taking notes while reading will encourage attention, reduce fatigue.
- Taking notes also helps you to check the level of comprehension of the material, creating a basis for remembering the acquired knowledge.
- Read when you are in the right mood. If you are distracted, angry, or too worried to concentrate, you won’t get much out of what you read, and probably won’t remember any of it the next day either.
- Don’t forget to keep track of library due dates. You return or renew your library books by the due date to avoid late fees. (Should find your favorite author, and always check out his or her books first!)
Hope that you will develop yourselve more!
