I have never read a serious book 1 day in my life. I'm starting college soon and I suck at reading. I'm forcing myself to read 40 books before I start school. I'm reading my first book and nothing is comprehending in my mind. Will my mind sharpen up the more I read?

    Yes practice makes perfect. Read slowly if you have to, eventually you will start to understand better. Read little bits at a time and if you don't understand something don't hesitate to reread it to get a full grasp You'll be a better reader before you know it, I promise.

    You should talk to a reading specialiest. There can be many reason why you can't read. The simplist reason can be that you can't read on white paper. They sell this color films that you can put on top of the white paper and it makes the words clear and make sense. It could be a phonics problem, maybe you have trouble pronouncing the words or a fluency problem which means you can read but not up to speed and you lose concentration and can't comprehend what you are reading. I teach GED many of my adult students struggle with reading.
