Welcome to Travis Manley's Writers Blog.

I currently make my living as a photographer, but have always had an interest in writing. I am currently working on a few projects (short fiction) and thought it would be fun to share my thoughts and experiences as I attempt to get my work published.

Reading Comprehension

Bookmark and Share
I have always loved to read, but have discovered that I have to really work to ensure I comprehend and retain what I read. For some reason I find myself racing through passages and not effectively absorbing what I read. I can finish a book or an article and have totally forgotten what I read later on. There are some advantages to this; I can reread the same book over and over and still be surprised in parts, but I would rather spend that time reading new books.

I found some helpful sites dealing with how to improve your reading comprehension and retaining what you read, and thought I would pass along what I found.
