I love reading books, I have recently also moved to reading –eBooks and reading books online via i-pad.
This post isn’t about that.
It’s about finding the most effective way to read a book, remember the idea behind it and trigger the thought process. Not exactly the way you would read a novel.
I’ll explain what I mean- I like reading books in combos. This means if they are on similar topics/themes I will club them together and read. I don’t club more than 3 books. For example- I read Rework and Delivering Happiness together; both are about creating corporate cultures and see how differently it’s done for the same goal.
Why this is great:
- You can easily compare between the books and theories and real life examples before yo forget.
- It makes me think because I am reading 2 different opinions about the same topic, sometimes complimentary, sometimes contradictory
- By reading 2-3 authors at the same time, I spread my horizon more on the topic.
