You have to find what will hook you in a book for a longer time. Start with a book that inspires your personal interest. If you like fiction, don’t overthink just choose fiction as your first pick.

The best time to read is at night, just before you go to bed but you can set your time for the day according to your routine.
Always try to read at least 10-15 pages daily without getting disturbed while reading.
3. Give your brain halt from social media
If you struggle to put your phone down at times, give your brain some social media detox. Mobile phones increase anxiety,  insecurity in humans and also hinders your sleep at night. So, put your phone down at least an hour before you go to bed and grab your book.
