Read Faster. Read Better. Read More.
Welcome to the Read More section of The Art of Living. If you’re here, there’s a good chance it’s for one of three reasons:
- You’re trying to decide what to read next;
- You’re looking for well-written book summaries; or
- You want to read faster and retain more of what you read.
Well, good news! You’re in the right place for all three.
The first thing to do is check out my 10-step effective-reading cheat sheet. To get it, use the form above. N.B., This is exactly the same 10-step process I use to write the many book summaries you’ll find here on The Art of Living.
After that, bookmark this page and take your time exploring the recommended tools, reading lists, book summaries and articles on reading more below. If you want to read more this year, there aren’t many better places to start.
- Amazon Audible – I always recommend reading with your eyes. But there are times when holding a book just isn’t practical. Or when listening to a book, read by its author, adds something unique (like this one). That’s when Audible becomes awesome. PLUS you currently get two FREE audiobooks with a free trial so it’s basically a no-brainer.
- Kindle Paperwhite – The best way to read more is to always have a good book close by. I know you love paper. Me too. But I would probably read 75% fewer books each year if I didn’t have my trusty Kindle to hand, 24/7.
Book Recommendations (A – Z):
One of the best ways to read more this year is to read from good, curated lists. And that’s exactly what you’ll find below. These are my reading lists. The ones that I’ve spent hours researching and putting together from other lists, my own reading and expert recommendations. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Book Summaries (A – Z):
Syntheses, summaries and notes on some of the best books ever written (or just ones I wanted to read!) in anything from 500 to 10k words. Anything you enjoy in my writing or thinking almost certainly started somewhere here.
Articles (A – Z):
In the coming years, I’ll be sharing more and more articles on how to read more, how to read well and how to remember what you read. For now, here’s a couple of thoughts to get started.
Recommend a Book:
One of my all-time favourite things to wake up to is a really good book recommendation.
If you’ve read something recently that changed your life and that you’d like to share – get in touch. I’d genuinely love to hear from you.
Until then, I hope you found something here today that helped you in your journey.
Good luck, go well, and good reading,
Arthur “Read More and Read Well” Worsley
