t's not news that reading more and better books will make you smarter. Basically every business icon you hear about regularly on this site, from Elon Musk to Bill Gates to Jeff Bezos, is a huge reader. And because 'read more' is such common advice, so are a bunch of obvious strategies to accelerate your reading.

If you're interested in the topic at all, you've probably been told by now that it's OK to give up on books you're not interested in to make space for titles you'll devour. Likewise, it's probably occurred to you to spend less time browsing social media and more time with books. Maybe you're even read about the advantages of having a stack of unread books lying around so you'll always have options to pick up when you finish your last book.

But what if you want to go beyond these entirely solid but pretty well circulated suggestions? Then a new HBR post from author and podcaster Neil Pasricha is for you. In it he offers a host of offbeat but effective ideas to get you reading even more. You're pretty much guaranteed not to have heard them before.
