Think ahead of time – why are you reading this? What information are you trying to gain from the reading? Then perhaps you can skim over certain things and read slowly and carefully the part that is important to you. Also, you will be less likely to become bored and stop paying attention to what you are reading.

Sometimes I read several pages, and realize I have no idea what I read. I was only reading the words aloud to myself, but not paying the least attention to the meaning.

For example, with a newspaper article, there should be a who, what, where, why and when. You can skim straight to those parts and understand the article without having to read every word.
