    I know it sounds like a basic skill, but I've just started uni and we've got read a book for a book review that we have to write, the only problem is I'm struggling to read it. I find I read a page or two and have absolutely no idea what I've just read and then I half fall asleep when I re-read it. Any one have any useful tips on training yourself to read academic books?

    Make notes as you read.

    Also consider getting your eyes checked. I had a similar focus problem when reading some years ago and that turned out to be the underlying issue.
