Tips for reading?

Postby Speedeh » Sun Sep 19, 2010 10:37 am

So for about a year now I've been trying to read The Hunchback of Notre Dame, it's one of my favourite storie and I'm sick of only knowing the disney version xD I want to know the real version so I've been determined to read the book, but I've only got through about 3-4 pages, in a YEAR, there has to be an easier way right? know any tips to make reading easier?

My mum has suggested ordering it in larger font size print, or reading it online where the paragraphs are spaced out more so it's not all in a clump, you have any ideas?

I agree with your mum, ordering large font size might be good if you struggle with small writing. Like James said Ebook reader might be good as well as an Audio Book.

I love reading, but I find it incredibly easy to get distracted. Maybe this is a problem too? Though sadly I cant give any solutions to this as I havent found any myself yet >_> It's just a pain. I have a growing pile of books I want to read.

http://etc.usf.edu/lit2go/title/h/hnd.html has it as free mp3s, or you can download it in itunes - search for 'lit2go'. Better still, it's free. :)

i find a less distracting reading envrionment helps, low lighting, and more recently i have been given coloured overlays which help a lot. also placing a ruler under the line you are reading so your eyes dont jusmp lines.
the way i see it, dyspraxia is an extra hurdle in every race i run, but that extra hurdle, is just extra exercise, so in the end, i will come through stronger.
