My Uni years [In reply to] Can't Post

were *all* reading. Very little writing, almost no tests. I am a big reader on my own, which helped, but it still can be hard to plow through 200 pages of Thucycides in an evening, or even 5 pages of Kant.

If I were desperate, I would bribe myself with an M&M for finishing a certain number of pages. It was also good to find a study-buddy - someone to read out loud with, and/or discuss what you read, trying to bring the topic alive, rather than just seeing it as words on a page to be got through as quickly as possible. It's so much more fun when you understand more of what you're reading, and begin to see how human choices and frailties can apply to what is happening around us today.

History is people - the stories of those who live it and those who tell it.
