We've all been there: You get assigned a book to read, and it's just SO boring that you feel you can't finish it. But this article will help you get through that book, and hopefully even benefit from the book a little!

Steps

  1. Read the book's summary. What is the book about? Is there something exciting in the plot that you haven't gotten to yet? If so, this might entice you to read more and find that exciting part.

  2. Ask friends if they read the book. If they have, ask them about the book, the story, the plot, etc. If they haven't, then move on to the next step.

  3. Start reading the book. Although you will really want to give up reading the book, hang in there! It might just turn out to be a book you really enjoy!

  4. Go to the Sparknotes or Cliffnotes website and look up the book you are reading. Check out a summary of the book, and maybe some information about the characters. If you can, find a character you can relate to, or a character that sounds like one of your friends, family, etc. If you can relate to the character in some way, it might make it more interesting for you.

  5. Don't lock yourself in your room, sitting on the chair. What you need is a nice quiet spot to sit that is well lit with fresh air. You don't need to lock yourself out from the rest of the world for a long period of time.

  6. Take it one step at a time. If the chapters are long, read about one or two chapters a day. If the chapters are short, you might be able to read one or two chapters at a time. Space out your reading throughout the day so you don't get frustrated or turned off by the book. The last thing you want to do is get so frustrated you don't want to pick up the book again!

  7. Have a snack with you when you read. Make sure it is something healthy, like peanuts, apples, water, or orange juice.

  8. Don't have the TV running, computer near you (and on!), or cell phone near you. Anything that will tempt you and distract your from your reading should be turned off and put away.

  9. Be patient. You might never like the book, but the last thing you want to do is stop reading it completely and rely on a summary, or Sparknotes/Cliffnotes. Although these resources can be helpful, if you have to do a report and use specific quotes, you won't have that knowledge from a summary!

  10. Make the most of the book you are reading. Draw pictures of the most important parts of each chapters to help you visualize the events. Talk with a friend about the events that happened so far in your reading. Anything that makes the characters more real, or the plot more real, can help make a boring book less boring!


Tips

  • Whatever makes you want to read more without getting frustrated, go for it!
  • Take it easy and stay relaxed. Read for short periods of time. Stop when you start to get tired, frustrated, or mad.
  • Sit in a clean, organized, quiet, comfortable, and well-lit area. You might want to have some calming fragrances in the room, too. Find an air freshener, or a scent dispenser that you plug into an electrical outlet. Pleasant aromas can help stop your from being too frustrated.
  • Have a snack. A healthy pick-me-up can help you get through the book! Have a small snack, like grapes or peanuts, and water or juice, with you.
  • Talk to other friends who have read the book. Is there a part you haven't gotten to yet that is very exciting? If so, this might make you want to read the book more so you can get to that part.
  • Find something you can relate to about the book. Even if it is just physical characteristics about characters, you might enjoy it more if you can relate to it.
  • Try to find something enjoyable about the book. If you are having troubles with that, look at everything from little details to very broad topics about the book. Do you like the setting? Do you like other books by that author? Or how about something more detailed, like: Is that something you or your friend would say? Do you like what he/she is wearing?
