Slow and steady…
It’s the perfect weather to be tucked up inside with a book at the moment and yet I don’t seem to be getting through any of the three reads I have on the go with much pace. But there’s a new reading craze that tells me I’m not alone in this and neither should I feel guilty about it.
It’s called the Slow Reading Movement and sees people come together to sit in a silence and read, once a week. I think it’s quite a comforting idea – it reminds me of the half hour following registration on a school morning, where everyone would take out their books and devote half an hour to them.
Here, says The Guardian are three rules to follow during slow reading:
1) Free yourself from digital disruption
2) Don’t scan – practise reading each line left to right, and take in every word
3) Make a note of words or phrases you like, and return to them later
Let us know how you get on!
