Set a deadline
Set a deadline so you have a goal to reach for.
Calculate reading time
Time how long it takes you to read a page of the book, and multiply that by the total number of pages to determine how long it will take you to read the whole book. Divide this by the number of days until your deadline.
Schedule specific times to read every day, to make reading the book a habit.
Create a space
Create a comfortable reading space, to improve your mood and make the time pass more quickly.
Read on downtime
Read during spare time such as when you're waiting in line or at the doctor's office.
Make notes in the margins, check web sites that offer study guides on the material, or talk about the book with friends and family.
