Getting Into A Novel

When I first start reading a new book it can take me about a hundred pages to get into the story, unless it is something like a Gaunts Ghosts novel (a Dan Abnett series set in the Warhammer 40k universe) or some other series I’ve been reading for years.

Even when I’m listening to an audiobook the first hour or so won’t hold my attention as well as the rest of the story. This is something that really annoys me as I normally miss something important because I’ve not committed to the story or the characters yet. One way I’m trying to change that is to binge read the first quarter of a book. With Embedded I’ve not done this though as sleep has been quite demanding this week, and I’m already into the story and characters with this one. I think that’s because it’s a Dan Abnett book, but anyway that is one thing I’m going to try when reading. I want to read more in general but this is one part of reading that I think will help.

If I can get into the story quicker I’ll be pulled through by the story quicker 🙂

That makes sense to me 😊
