Book Oblivion’s How to Read More Webinar offers practical solutions and best practices to overcome life’s challenges to reading more, reading better, and reading to remember.
Do you find it impossible to find the time to read with your family life and career obligations? Are you constantly distracted when you finally crack open your book and find yourself reading the same sentence repeatedly? Do you have difficulty digesting what you read and sharing it with others? Do you have a hard time keeping track of the books you read?
We combine neuroscience, psychology, and productivity strategies to offer readers solutions for time management, habit stacking, reading as meditation, community reading, and note-taking. Readers will leave this workshop with skills, tools, and organizational strategies to read more, read better, and read to remember.
Who is this webinar for?
Any reader hoping to take their reading practice to the next level is invited to participate, especially readers desiring to improve their reading habits and create a more sustainable reading practice. Teachers, professors, high school students, homeschool parents, business owners, writers, artists, veterans, and retired folks have found a place in our community in the past and are sure to learn some new practices in this How to Read More Webinar.
When is this webinar?
We offer this workshop once a year. Our next How to Read More virtual webinar will take place December 28, 2023, from 4:00-5:00 pm Eastern. Register now to hold your space.
