Have you still got the time to read more books? Do they only gather a lot of dusts and cobwebs because you don't care to open them or you simply lack the time to read more books?
You have to accept the fact that you can pick the ones you like to keep on reading--and that you don't have to peruse everything. There may be plenty of classics and others which claims that some works are "must-read", but then again, you don't have to force yourself in try and reading more books if you can't even get past the tenth or at least the 5th page.
What matters most is that you choose to read more books you only want to read and not just you buy a book that everyone is talking about but then you can't even manage to get on with it!
Here are some tips in what to look for to really know what you want to get on reading:
1) Look for genres which truly interests you.
There are several of them--romance, suspense, thrillers, psychological thrillers, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, etc.
2) Search for those written by authors you already know and enjoyed their works.
3) And those whom people highly recommend you try and at the same time, who like the similar books you enjoy. Of course, you have to understand that not all reading materials grab your attention right from the first page. Give yourself and the book enough time to sink in and be immersed in a subject matter or characters of the book. Don't rush and be in a hurry to grab a book if you got only a few minutes left to spare, or you have some important agenda to work on first.
Just the same with people, it takes awhile to get to know someone, like you give yourself ample time to get started with a book. But hey, once you're engrossed or get attached, you'll find it easy to continue reading.
