Re: What techniques do you use to read more effectively?

I'm a really slow reader, too. I'm reading a book now that I started over a year ago...well, several books, because whenever I hit a boring section of a book or hear about another interesting book, I often start a new one so that I'm usually reading four or five books at the same time and go back and forth between them. And when I return to a book after reading another one for a while, I've usually forgotten quite a bit of what I had read before.

But being on medication for my ADHD has made a big difference. In the past, I would often start books and never finish them because I lost interest in them, became more interested in another book, or even completely forgot about them. I also would often start to get a little drowsy when I would sit down to read, especially if it was a difficult or complicated text.

Lately, however, I seem to be persevering with the same few books instead of starting new ones all the time without finishing the old ones. I also find that I can read more challenging books for longer periods of time and don't get drowsy when I'm reading some books like I used to. I don't think that I'm reading any faster, though.
