From how to raise readers to how to learn more from what you read, here we share some of his tips and advice which are helpful to readers of all ages.

In an earlier post, Grant shared his advice for parents on how to make their kids love reading. Sharing his tips, Grant tweeted: “If you want your kids to love reading, don’t just fill your home with books. Make them part of your life.”

Talking of older readers, for those who aim to speed read, the bestselling author also shared his thoughts in a recent tweet as he wrote, “A great book should be savored like a gourmet meal, not inhaled like fast food.”

Meanwhile, it is often noticed that many people struggle at finishing the book they started reading. But instead of giving his tips on how to finish that half-read book, Grant has also said that it is okay to not finish reading all the books you start. “Giving up isn’t an admission of failure. It’s an act of recognition that time is scarce and there are many books worth reading,” Grant tweeted, making a point.
