      I’ve read many books in my youth then stopped for a while and recently picked up reading again after seeing how cheap used books are on the internet. It took me 1.5 month to finish Brothers Karamazov even though I’m trying to read every day, now I’m reading the history of Rome and even though I find the subject fascinating it’s taking longer than expected, Iliad is next and its magnitude is daunting…

        Read more engaging books instead of only reading classics/ history for LARP value, sometimes a good historical fiction will give me an appetite for a non-fiction on the same subject, but reading exclusive non-fiction can get pretty dry.

        You should be reading for fun above all else.
        It's all well and good working your way through the classics of literature or reading historical tomes, but those can quickly get heavy and tiring, ESPECIALLY if you're reading them one after the other.
        Just shake it up. Read some genre trash here and there, just a small book or something, as a palate cleanser. Pick out a comedy novel, or a classic noir, or even some crummy Star Wars book if that's your thing. Just something light and fluffy that's at least a little bit entertaining and which you can work through easily in only a few days.

        Read what you want, not what you think you should.

          What said. But also, trying to read faster is overrated. As long as you're reading something, and setting aside time every day to do it, you're doing better than most people. Everyone reads at different paces, and there's no shame in only finishing a book every month or two if you're making a genuine effort. Don't beat yourself up for reading "slow".

    Read slower.
    Re-read more.

    There's plenty of time to read all the right books as long as you don't waste time reading the wrong books.

    This is a magic trick anon.
    Use the back of your pain and point the line along the lines when you read them. Simply doubles your speed.
    There’s another kind of reading which is like you read two lines at the same time but i only recommend it for non fiction.

    Gotta trim the video games/phone time down man. I have the same problem, but especially if you cut the phone time down you’d be surprised how much reading you get done.

      Not OP but i feel you anon. Have to force myself to turn off my phone, stick away from games, social media and just read and in about 30 pages I get into hyper focus mode and get much more reading done...its such a joyful time.

      It's not just with reading.. just in general cutting out being absolutely flocked by all kinds of information gives a kind of clarity to the mind that is unreal. It's no wonder most of the world lives in a kind of mist right now...

    The thirst for impressions gives a certain impetuosity, an uninterruptedness, a variety to the activities of a youth. He wishes constantly to test himself, to see everything, to hear everything, to be everywhere. You can look for him wherever there is a glitter for the eyes, a harmony for the ears, an open space for movement. He wishes to be under an uninterrupted stream of impressions, always new and therefore various. He does not like to sit home, does not like to stay in one place, does not like to concentrate on only one activity. His element is enjoying himself.
    But this is not enough for him. He is not satisfied with an actual testing of himself, but wishes to assimilate and, as it were, transfer what others have felt, how others have acted by themselves or in circumstances similar to his own. Then he throws himself into books and begins to read. He goes through one book after another, often without even understanding their contents; he is chiefly interested in finding an “effect”, no matter what kind of thing it might be or what it might touch on. Something new, picturesque, sharp - this for him is the best possible recommendation of a book. Here there is revealed and formed an inclination to light reading, which is the same thirst for impressions, only in a different form. But something more is involved here also.
    A youth often becomes bored with reality because it somehow binds him from the side: it tics him down and encloses him too much within definite limits, whereas he is seeking a kind of of freedom. Thus he often tears himself away from reality and goes off into a world he has created for himself, and there he begins to act in glory. Fantasy builds for him whole histories, where for the most part the hero is his own person. The youth is only entering into life; before him there is a deceptive, enticing future. In time he will have to take part in it - but what will he be? Can one not draw aside this curtain and take a look? Fantasy, which is very active at this age, does not tarry with its satisfactions. Here daydreaming manifests itself and develops in such actions

    I'll echo the comments of other anons in the thread. I'm currently having the same issue but what I do is avoid reading lengthy novels, historical or philosophical books one after another. You get burnt out very quickly. I tend to separate them in between smaller novels or lighter reads. I'll read some Mishima, Kawabata or a fantasy book around 300 or so pages to break things up.

    You can only read one book at a time just enjoy the one book u are actively reading instead of letting FOMO ruin the current book for you.

    You dumb frogs focus on reading faster, not reading better, and in the end can't discuss a book beyond memearrows or regurtitaing what someone else said in an essay or a YT vid.

    Since you don't seem to care about enjoying the art of literature you should just read the synopsis on wikipedia.
