  “This course helped me understand how important properly reading books is. I’ve learned the different types of reading, and also learned about some nice book lists for me to check out!”

  “Thanks very much! I’ve been struggling to get better at reading and this course gave me some solid guidance, particularly that just 10-minutes per day will make a big difference and that I don’t have to force myself to read something boring. I’m almost done with my 2nd book of the year which I usually barely do by the fall! Feeling inspired!”

  “I found that this course, beside the motivation it is able to give, offered me recommendations in how to read more efficiently and gave me the courage to even skip books. Until now I lived with the impression that if you begin a book you must finish it, be it bad or good. 10/10”
