Reading Faster: Reading a Print Book While Listening to the Audio at Twice the Speed Last Saturday, I set aside three hours to read The Hard Thing about Hard Things, while listening to the audio version, but it was not meant to be. I couldn’t get the mp3 audio version of the book to play. See my blog post Struggling with Technology. After wasting three hours I didn’t want to read the book again that day, so I read Kiera Cass’ Selection trilogy, which I enjoyed. I will write and post my review later in the week.

This reality makes a skill such as speed reading and digesting more of what you read a must.

Speed Reading Tip: Read a Chunk of Words at a Time Since my mother’s death in late 2012, I have been working on major yearly personal projects that can have an impacton my professional life. First, I had the World Virtual Book Tour  as a tribute to her, then my informal Liberal Arts Education, and this year, it’s The Invisible Mentor 2015 Reading Challenge.

Make a choice, stick to it, pace yourself! Every day we are confronted with many decisions. With most decisions, there are many choices so we have to choose. We do not always have all the background information so we have to do the best we can.
