I was never interested in reading when I was a student. Ironically, I now find it tough to sleep without reading something on the Moon Reader app on my Smartphone.
Why Read A Book?
I have learnt so many things from the books I have read in the past few years. If there is a situation you are facing in your life there is perhaps a book you can read about and learn from it too to tackle the situation you are in.
When someone writes a book, they are putting all the experiences and learnings into it and when you read it, you gain all the learnings and experience of that person without actually have to experiencing it yourself.
Paperback vs eBooks
There is a never-ending debate about what type of reading is better, the good old Paperback or reading an eBook.
Paperbacks have their charm, and nothing can beat the tangible feeling of a book from your favorite author. Not to mention the ‘no-worries’ of the phone battery dying on you when it just starts getting interesting.
But, then, I prefer the e-Reader app for all my reading because I have the luxury of carrying my entire collection in my pocket, and I am just a few taps away from reading them.
I have literally finished a book by reading it in small blocks of time throughout the day which otherwise would have gone wasted. I can read a few pages while I am standing in a queue waiting for my turn, aur where I go to the barber shop to get my haircut, I utilise every waiting time it get, to read my favourite books.
And there is one more reason I prefer an e-Reader. Which is the ability to read faster? This article’s point. To be able to read any book faster.
What do you need to read a book faster?
- Moon Reader App (Play Store Link)
- The epub version of your favorite book.
The Moon Reader app is available in the play store, and it’s free. There is a feature that lets you listen to the book added to it.
In my post about reading web articles faster, I mentioned that we tend to read faster when we hear the words. Moon Reader app lets you listen to the words and control the speed at which you listen.
The only struggle will be to find the ePub version of the book you want to read, which you can Google yourself. It’s easy to find. Just google the title of the book you are looking followed by epub, india are 99% chances you will get it.
There is a detailed article I have written on the blog, it talks about reading anything faster, both books and articles using different text to speech tools. Check out this in-depth article.
