Hello. You clicked on this video
because you probably want to learn how to read a book a day
just like what the title says. Or you clicked on it
because you like me and you are subscribed
to this channel. By the way if you are not subscribed
to this channel then you definitely should be
or follow me if you’re watching this
on Facebook. So, let me explain.
I love to read, I read every single day.
And there’s so many books that I would love to read and I just know that I will never get
to in my lifetime because there are
just way too many books. This thought is overwhelming, I just want the information
to be injected into my brain. So, the day
that that is possible then I will reach my full potential
and happy. I don’t even know
what I’m talking about anymore. I am going to teach you
how I read a little bit of every book every single day and just average it out
to reading a book a day. The first one is something
that might seem a little bit obvious but it is learn
how to speed read. So, this is where you are reading and normally
what people do is one word, you are reading soles
and eels, of course, the Gryphon replied,
this Alice in Wonderland by the way, so, it might get weird. That is how most people read. So, what you’re gonna do is,
you’re gonna actually learn how to use your peripheral vision. If you are looking at a room
you will notice that you can see everything
all at once. Right now I am looking
straight into the camera but I can see my guitar over here, I can see a plant,
I can see a pillow, I can actually see all the way
in this angle over here, I see my lamp
which I’m using as my back light. This is my peripheral vision, I can take in a lot at a time. You’ll be using your peripheral vision
to take in the full sentence. I’m not gonna get into this
into this particular video, there are a lot of videos
that will teach you how to speed read. There’s actually
a really great video from Tim Ferriss where he breaks it down,
it’s a long video, I’m gonna put a link to that
so that you guys can go check it out and learn from him
because he did an amazing video and it’s much better than
what I’m gonna do. Next up, we have audio books. If you want to read
and feel like you aren’t able to do the speed reading thing or maybe you have
some kind of disability that makes it difficult
for you to read, then audiobooks an amazing option, you’re able to do it
while you are doing mundane tasks, like cooking or cleaning. I listen to audio books
all day every day. If I am going
to go walking somewhere and I know it’s a 10 minute walk, boom, I just got 10 minutes
of my book in my brain. For my audiobooks I like to use a little website
called audible if you guys haven’t heard of it
then you should check it out because
for a monthly subscription you can actually get an audiobook
and it is awesome, they’ve got sales all of the time and they have created lists. So, I’m always finding out about books do I need to find out about more books that I don’t have the time to read? I don’t know. But if you want
to try the whole audible thing then I have a link that will let you guys
try audible for free for 30 days, it includes two free audiobooks. So, I’m getting you guys
the deals over here. If you’re on a budget and don’t want to do the whole
pain thing to get the audio book then look into your Public Library. My Public Library offers audiobooks, I can actually go onto their website and check out a book
and download it and just pop
it onto my phone, that is 100% free because it is part
of the Public Library System. Definitely check out your Public Library and see if that’s something that they offer. By the way, I’m just gonna mention
that this video does have affiliate links and what that means is,
if you decide to buy something or try something out then I will get a little bit of that and that will help me
to buy some tea and some biscuits and maybe some books. This next one might be
considered cheating for some of you but I feel like I need
to tell you about it because… So, there is this website,
this app called Blinkist, what Blinkist does is it takes
the most important parts of nonfiction books, creates a summarized
version of it both reading and audiobook and you can listen
to it in maybe 15-20 minutes and you kind
of get the gist of the book. That does not count as a full book. If there is a book
that you’re kind of interested in but don’t know if you want
to invest the time in reading the full book, you can check out Blinkist,
read the book there. It also comes in handy
with certain books that are just case studies, because maybe you don’t want
to read 50k studies, they’re basically telling you
to do the same thing, I actually found books
through Blinkist that I read
and I decided that I wanted to read the full book. They have a free version
and a paid version. On the free version
you have access to a free book that they provide
and they select every single day. If you are on a budget
and don’t mind what you are reading, then this is a great option for you but I definitely recommend going
on to the subscription based service because they will actually
let you highlight different things that you find interesting and you can sync that over
to your Evernote and you can have notebooks
with your notes that you take. If you want to check out Blinkist, the link is gonna be
in the description of this video. My last tip for reading a book a day is
to read one hour before you go to sleep. You should read a fiction book,
something that will relax you and maybe not inspire you too much. If you read a nonfiction book then you’re gonna start
getting your ears rolling and that’s gonna make it a little bit
difficult for you to sleep, at least that’s something
that I’ve run into. I’ve read stuff before sleeping and I’m just like,
Oh, I just want to wake up so that I can start working on this
thing that I just learned in this book. That’s probably not a good thing. This is also a really great way
to get a little bit of time away from screen time. I know that a lot
of you guys know ’cause you guys are super smart. Screen time before
bed is not good for you, it’ll probably affects your sleeping, especially if you’re
just lying in bed and all you’re doing is
swiping through social media posts. And it’s a lot of information
to take before you go to sleep. I recommend an hour before sleep,
no phones, no screens, no social media, no texting,
and you just read, read until you fall asleep
instead of looking at your phone. Those are my tips,
if you enjoyed them then please subscribe and follow. Be sure to turn on notifications because I am making a video
every single day in December because it’s not like I have
enough things to do. But these things are important to me and because they’re important to me,
I want to share them with you. By the way, if you guys
need some book recommendations. Alice in Wonderland
is my favorite book of all time. If you want
to do the audiobook version, there is this amazing audio book
on audible I love falling asleep to it,
it’s just, the narration is so, so good. I’m gonna put a link to it so that
you guys can get all that information if you guys want
to check it out and maybe fall asleep listening
to that as well. You want some more book recommendations then head over
to my red site, my red site which is red romina.com I actually have the
page there with resources, different apps that I use,
including books that I recommend. I’m going to head out. Hopefully you enjoyed it, if you did
then please give me a thumbs up to let me know. It’s gonna be a new video tomorrow. So, stay tuned.
But for now I’m gonna go. So, I will see you when I see you, bye! This video was made possible by my patrons
over at PATREON.COM/REDROMINA If you like what I do, become a patron
and be a part of the exploration.

    As an author, reading is probably one of my favorite pastimes; with The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger being one of my top reads. Have you read it?
