It’s no big deal if that’s how you perfer to read. We all have our own different styles of reading. Some of us can knock out a book or two in a day, others take their time to digest the material slowly, and some do exactly what you do, read in bits and pieces with long breaks in between. So it could very well be just your style of reading.
Now if it’s something that you have to finish by a deadline (like it’s a book for school or something) I would suggest breaking it up. Give yourself a set number of chapter or pages to read each day so that you can finish in time. Read those pages and then take a break from the book for a bit to come back to them later. Another suggestion I would make is to put some music on. I perfer classical, or any instumental pieces so I’m not distracted by words. The music helps to relax you and allows you to get deeper into the book and block out all other distractions. On the other hand though the music itslef may also be distracting, so perhaps sitting in complete silence it better for you. You will have to run a few tests to see which you like best. And keep the book in plain sight like on your nightstand where you will see it everyday. Gulit-trip yourself, cause having it out of sight means it’s out of mind.
Another thing you can do to help keep your mind on the material is to read it aloud. I used to do this with Shakespeare or other difficult cumbersome books all the time. Erin (our other mod) and I would act out scenes in our dorm room, with voices and gestures and everything. It makes it more fun and can help you get a real feel for the words. I even do it now in law school to make sure I have understand everything.
Really though if it’s just for fun, it’s no big deal if you pick up books and forget about them that’s your perogative and it doesn’t make you any less of an avid reader. You do you kid.
