What I know for sure: its not about what you read, its about what you do AFTER you read it. There are three VERY important aspects of reading which I call
“The Three A’s”…
ABSORB, APPLY & ACT =)
ABSORB happens when you read a powerful part: STOP & really think about it. Next APPLY it to YOUR life (now or in the past. Think of personal experiences that allow you to directly relate to it) and then read it again from your own angle. Finally ACT on what you’ve learned after you finish the book. I mean, what good is reading if you’re not applying it to real life? Read it, learn it & #ACT accordingly. =)

PS: I don’t read much fiction anymore (evolution) so this method applies to self-help, personal growth and inspirational books.
