How do you people stay focused when reading? My wanders off after reading one page, after that I have to reread sentences before I finally get what's written.

It's not like like I'm forcing myself to read, I really like reading but It happens with any damn book I read. Quite disheartening desu...

What gives? Any tips?

Find a D E S I G N A T E D reading spot. All jokes aside, if you have a room at home or a favorite cafe where the only thing you do is read, simply going there will make reading easier and easier as you get more accustomed to it. Take your phone to listen to some background music, but don't take a laptop which can be much more distracting.

And then just read more. It gets easier with time. Also taking notes, whether in book margins, a separate notebook, or both, will force you to interact more actively with the text, and will prevent you from flipping a page if you aren't 100% sure what was written on it.

What sucks for me is I've created my designated reading spot as waiting areas when I have nothing better do between either classes or other activities

It's actually fucked me up since I have trouble sitting down and reading at home

my mind wanders off after reading one page too,
it happens every time. I found that the first 10-20 minutes of reading is always a write-off and there is no way to focus.

but if i get past that first 20 minutes I start to get into the book and the rhythm and then my mind slowly goes into focus.

so OP let your mind wander and realize you're not going to be reading well at first, but you'll sink into focus

I some times jiggle my leg and honest to god it makes me fuse with page
