I am going to miss my quite time hanging out in the bookstore. I guess I will have to do more hanging out in my local library and reading at home.
The hardest thing about reading at home is all the distraction. When I sit at the bookstore or library I don't have the computer, or my supplies, or even those nagging chores starring back at me to get up and do something.
Creating a space just for reading can help with getting away from those distraction and enliven your reading experience.
Try to find a space with the least amount of distraction and good lighting.
If you are doing a lot of reading remember to take breaks to avoid eye fatigue.
When you are reading for inspiration keep in mind your creative needs. The more you are aware of your needs the easier it will be to make a connection between ideas, concepts, and insights, as well as making it easier to grasp ideas.
Find the time and the perfect spot so you can read more often. The more you read the more you will develop your knowledge of creative thinking strategies and idea generation techniques.
