I recently ran a poll on Twitter asking people about how many books per year people were reading. The results were as follows:
How many books do you read a year?

I will admit that I was surprised by the results. The reason is that I read between 100 and 150 books per year. Perhaps my job as a pastor allows me more time to read than others. But there are other ways that people can increase their reading capacity.
Have you ever considered listening to audiobooks? The great thing about audiobooks is that you can listen to them while you doing other things. I drive quite a bit and I no longer dread getting stuck in traffic. With my trusty iPhone, I can expand my mind by listening to quality content. I do the same thing when I’m walking the dog, making lunches and doing laundry. Things I used to hate doing are now a pleasure because it can be like reading a book.
