    I mostly read papers and educational stuff+textbooks related to my courses, because the only fiction book I'm really excited for and waiting to read is the next book in the Stormlight Archive
    What is that about?

    I read almost every day. There is never a point such that a person could ask "what are you reading at the moment?" and I should have to say "nothing".I feel at home in a library anywhere in the world as other people might in a church (or thesedays a Starbucks).

    If it's a good book I'll read it at breakfast, on the way to school, during free lessons, after school (if I haven't got any exams or huge piles of homework), at dinner, and then read it into the night until it's finished. No wonder I don't have friends.

    It's mostly about a few people in a feudal system who have/get "spren", which can be used to make weapons but some of which are also sentient and alive. The characters are developed really, really well and it's one of the few books I've read where I've actually laughed out loud at something a character has said. The books are pretty huge, though.

    It's by the same guy who finished the Wheel of Time, if you've read that.

    I love books with great character development! Plus if the book is large that can only be a good thing as you get more enjoyment. I'll read some reviews on it, and no I haven't read that.

    My advice on reading more is to make sure you always have a book in your bag. There are so many times throughout the day when you're just sitting around playing with your phone, and you could be reading instead.

    I'm also a member of an online book forum which I've found has dramatically increased my reading. It motivates you to finish books so you can discuss your views with other members, plus you meet people with similar interests and can end up having some very insightful discussions.

    I also created a book diary on one of the book forums which I've also found helpful in terms of planning what I read. Not only is it a nice way to condense your to-read list to make it more manageable, it's also quite motivating to check your reading log every so often and see how much you've read so far this year.

    It seems oddly pleasing to read in coffee shops and cafes. I aim to read everyday too but currently its more sporadic.

    And my book diary:

    http://www.bookclubforum.co.uk/commu...ng-diary-2017/

    There are numerous internet forums out there for readers and I've joined a few, but I always come back to this one. The members are all very, very nice, and the discussions are often in depth but are never argumentative. There's respect for every member of the forum and their views which creates a very open atmosphere for discussion.
