As March is coming to a close, we reflect on this month’s theme: reading. We have shared our perspective on reading, how important it is to find the time to read, and some of the book titles in which we are currently engrossed. We decided (probably because we’re the organized type) to keep with the theme of reading, and share with you some interesting articles on the subject.
The first article below shares some important things to keep in mind when you’re trying to increase your reading speed. The second article gives a few pointers on how you can encourage yourself to spend more time reading.
