I was wondering if anyone has any tips on how to get through reading difficult books? I'm starting University in September to study Philosophy but wanted to get some reading done beforehand but I'm finding some of the content quite difficult to digest or understand. Has anyone got any tips on how to go about it? I've heard some people read two books at once and take it in turns to read a chapter from each and that helps them but I am not so sure.

I tend to look for online summaries before I start reading to get an overall gist of what I'm reading and then read the text. Academic reading is hard to digest at first, but after a while you get used to it. My readings for university rarely, if ever, consist of whole books, usually I'll have a chapter from one text and a few more from other ones per lecture.
