These are tips that should come in handy whether you are looking to start a reading culture or you already enjoy reading but you are trying to find new things to read about.
Here are 5 tips on how to choose a good book to read.
Have some form of idea on what type of book you want
The first step to you being able to choose a good book is having some form of idea on what type of book you want. This could be the genre of the book, the author, your interests, whether there is a specific type of book you heard of that you have always been thinking about checking out, and whether there is a series of books you have read before and there is an addition to the series.
Take time and search your house
Take some time and search your house, you’d be surprised at the number of good books you are likely to find gathering dust. You may have bought or borrowed a book a couple of years back and forgot all about it, or someone was at your house and left behind a book. Some of these books may end up being really interesting reads.
Ask for book recommendations from friends and family
It’s usually not easy deciding what a good book looks like therefore it’s a good idea to ask someone who has had the opportunity to read a couple of books to recommend to you a good book to read. If you have friends and family who you know enjoy reading, it’s a good idea to ask them to recommend a book you can check out.
Take time and go through book reviews
There are a number of magazines, newspapers and websites that will have regular book reviews. It’s therefore a good idea to take time and go through these reviews to find out which books are receiving good reviews and why. If you like the reviews you can check out the books.
Consider joining a book club
One of the most rewarding ways to get yourself reading and have access to good books is by joining a book club. In such clubs, members get to share their experiences with the different books they have read and they will always push their fellow members check out books they found to be very interesting. The additional benefit is that you may even find the books for free because you are reading from the personal collections of your club members.
