As bookworms, its very important to read whenever and wherever possible. Books require commitment, and then they reward you greatly. How could could you waste anytime. So here I present the beginners guide on how to read while walking. There is an easy way, also known as audiobooks, but who would take the easy way out ? (answer: People who like to read while running, like, me) Don’t trip over. Don’t run into monkeys. With this guide you can read while walking and never get into trouble. Bonus: If you read while walking, everyone knows that you’re clearly a committed bookworm
Acquire a book. It doesn’t matter how you get it, by foul means or fair, but you need something that is worthwhile enough to spend your precious walking time on.
Find somewhere to walk. The trick to reading while walking is that you need somewhere to go. ( I guess you could read while on a treadmill or elliptical machine or something, because I’ve done that, but it’s much more interesting to actually go somewhere)
Develop the double focus. This is probably the hardest step, and until you’ve mastered it, you’ll probably still need to glance up occasionally. It helps to practice this on a route you know well, like the way to school, so that you don’t get lost. The trick to the double focus is essentially being aware of what is on the ground while reading what is on the page. You need to be alert, in order to avoid tripping over (or, in my case running into packs of vicious monkeys) SAFETY WARNING so I don’t get sued: Reading while walking can be dangerous. You need to be alert. Please, please, please be careful
Hold on tight. Sometimes things happen. Sometimes you trip over. Sometimes there are surprise stairs. Sometimes you siblings or friends want to talk to you. Sometimes feels try to knock you sideways. Hold on TIGHT to the book. Do not let go of it. There is nothing worst than lost books.
Practice. Keep reading while walking . You’ll be amazed at what you can get read. Never let feelings of despair push you down. You can do this!
