Calling all littens: What are your tips/strategies to stay focused while reading? I find my mind wandering more than I care for lately...

BookishFeminist I switch between things (I may read a short story every few chapters of a book to break it up) or I just take breaks from reading every 15 min or so. I empathize—I have ADHD so distractions while reading have always been a big problem for me. Sometimes it's best to set it down for a bit & come back. Also I find classical music in the background helps! 3y
LauraBeth I try to minimize outside distractions as best I can - so for example - I try not to read with my phone nearby because I'll eventually pick it up. I read better in short bursts (15-20 mins) as opposed to reading for long stretches at a time. My brain can be very scattered so sometimes it helps to give in to it - read for a short bit, clean for a short bit, work for a bit. 3y

Intense intense intense. Han Kang gives us a deep (terrifying) insight into how vulnerable our sanity can be. Sanity is precious and worth working for.

Super engaging! Got the audible version which was 20 hours long but I zipped right through it.

Tough read but immensely rewarding. Insight into a country/continent without having to feel uninvited.

#DauntBooks is on my must-visit bookshop list when in London. The book selection and amazing interior makes it super hard to leave without at least 3 books and a new canvas bag! #getindie

Libby1 I love Daunt! It is a beautiful place. I used to live near London. 3y

Almost done with book two of Ejerbo's Africa Trilogy. It came recommended from a fellow book clubber as a vacation read for our trip to Tanzania #partdeuxbookclub
