Here’s an idea: keep doing the things you enjoy (like eating chocolate, reading too much and watching tv) and try giving up some of your bad reading habits instead.
1 Judging a book by its cover... don’t do it! This Lent, go and pick out a book which has a cover that would usually put you off. You might be pleasantly surprised!
2 Unnecessary rereading – stop yourself from going back and reading what you’ve already read and understood! You’ll get to the exciting stuff more quickly – you can even try using a ruler to block out what you’ve read already.
3 Not looking up words you don’t understand– you can learn so much from books if you give them the chance. So while reading over Lent, make sure you look up those dictionary definitions!
