Reading a book in a day is easy. You need to follow certain steps, and it will become a routine for you.

It is imperative to avoid any distraction while reading a book. To read a book in a few hours, it’s certain that you must have to do the task faster. And that can happen only when you are focused on the content.
Read at least 250 words per minute. A minor disturbance can cause the distraction, which in turn leads to your inability to read the book.

It is hard to redevelop your interest while you are doing a task. Similarly, while reading if any of these distractions interferes you, it will lose your interest in the book and focus on the other subject.

Make sure that you are reading in a peaceful environment; if you are at home, and there is the continuous noise of striking of utensils, it is not the right place to read.
Tell your family members before you start reading, that you don’t want any interference. Let them know what you’re doing. But do not shift your focus because it is only possible if you are reading a book with interest.
