Serious Reading Addiction
Happy Friday pretty mommies 😉
Wish you were in lovely day.
Confession Time: As honest as I can be, I am actually a speed-reader (10 books in 1 day!) and I’m having serious reading addiction (exclusively non-fiction) since primary school.
Yes, I was that kid who could talk, write & draw for hours on a book I ever read.
My new books to read: early November 2009 ^0^
Note: Novels are excluded from “serious reading” 😀 Personally, I’m rarely read fiction books, only prefer to read ’em to escape into another world when I have the time to read.
Zealously, I know I need to do some fun and light reading time, but honestly I didnt have much time to implement in reality.

If you’ve been reading this blog, you already know I don’t buy a lot of toys for my kids. We love to INVENT toys instead of buying ’em 😉 I like toys, I genuinely do (I’m a proud owner of GUNDAM collection since in my Form3 [15 years old] *I build my model kits*) , but there are few things I’d spend my money on (enough said, lol). Books!
Alhamdulillah, I’m not a lazybones when it comes to the amount of books I read in a year. However I believe, the important is quality reading and not quantity.
The method that I use for my speedy reading uses a broad approach that combines several techniques, but still require me to read every word. My four basic principle to help your kids to learn speed reading:
- Hand-motion reading
- Eye-muscle routine trainning
- Memory enhancement through vocalization
- Organizational comprehension
Alert: You must practice these techniques or they will not work at all. It is not MAGIC. Speed reading is a variable, not a goal.
