Reading to learn is not very difficult. At times I have had to stop to look up a word
in the dictionary. But as they say you can't read two books at once. Here is how you do it, always have a dictionary handy when you read. Most people read to be entertained. You want to read to learn--which simply means to stop and think about what you have read and even more so when you come across some new and interesting knowledge. You can even go so far as to make notes as you read and in the end you will have been entertained by the book and improved your store house of knowledge.
