how long does it take to read 30 pages
When I asked myself that question recently, I realized that there were some simple reasons I wasn’t reading as much as I would like to, and I developed a reasonable system that is helping me read more than 30 books per year.
That’s essentially what this reading strategy is asking you to do. Before you move on to the normal bustle of the day, invest in yourself. Before your life turns into a whirlwind of activity, read a book that will make you better. As with most habits that can greatly impact your life, this will never feel urgent, but it is important.
20 pages per day. That’s all you need.
As part of the University of MichiganвЂ™s yearly Health and Retirement Study, researchers examined how many hours per week subjects (over 3,600 men and women, over the age of 50) read each week. Based on their responses, researchers determined that people who spend just 30 minutes reading per day lived an average of two years longer than their peers who didnвЂ™t.
According to a 2014 Time magazine article, Americans read (in their words) вЂњa paltry 19 minutes a day.вЂќ (19 minutes is pretty paltry.) The stat comes from a study conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, who also noted that younger Americans, aged 25-34, read just four minutes a day вЂ” really, who are you people? вЂ” while American adults over 75 read upwards of one hour each day вЂ” aka: my peeps.
I’ll repeat it: You don’t want to read every book this way.
Setting your pace is essential to reading a book in two hours or less.
Typical documents that are 30 pages include novels, novellas, and other published books. A typical single-spaced page is 500 words long.
