Find a quite spot to read your book. Like outside, in your room, even a bathroom. Don't read in a noisy place like at a restraunt or during a possasbly.Then you will consntrate on your sorondings and not on the book.
Another thing to make it even more relaxing would be a hot drink like hot choclate, tea , coffe, or anything else. Also doughnuts, a bagle , cinnomin buns, or any thing else.
