I don't do much reading of books or magazines during my spare time or for personal pleasure. The only thing that I really read on a daily basis is the newspaper. I read this so that I am aware of the events taking place within our community and around the world. What I do to ensure I'm reading it effectively is focus on the articles that discuss more important issues and I do this by reading the headlines that are specifically attention catching. One strategy I use to do this is by looking for specific words such as "disaster" and pictures that go with the title.
