How to Get More Out of Your Books
This series of worksheets focuses on specific works of fiction, but how do you get the most out of what you read when you find a new title? The first thing you should do is make sure you understand the basic premise about what you are about to read. You can get a great deal of this by perusing the cover and making sure that you read any forewords that may be available. We highly suggest that you describe your purpose for reading this will help you define the critical steps that are necessary to help you achieve your goal. A good habit to get into is to preview each section of the book before you actually read it and then give it a really quick read and then come back at a later time and read it thoroughly.
