Podcast Episode 20 – What Should I Read in English?

The Clark and Miller English Podcast: Gabriel Clark smiling with arms folded on a light purple backgroundLet me ask you two questions:

How many books have you started to read in English?

And how many books have you finished in English?

I bet the answers to these questions aren’t the same.

So why do we give up on books so easily?

Well, it’s usually for one of these reasons:

  1. You’ve chosen a book that’s too difficult.
  2. You’ve chosen a book that’s not very interesting to you.
  3. You’re a strong visual learner and you don’t like reading very much – even in your first language.
  4. You either don’t have enough time to “get into” the book or you have a short concentration span.

In this episode, I talk about why you’re not finishing your English books, the difference between intensive and extensive reading, and I recommend eight books that you will (probably) finish.

Reading is great fun – when you do it right!
