either for audiobooks or text.
i noticed, often im starting thinking about something else while still going through text, and few paragraph later, i realize that i can't recall what i've just read. luckily more often with uninteresting sections, that otherwise serve as a filler until better part of the book.

with audios i use audiobook+ebook combo - if possible. it always helps, especially for books that tend to be promising throughout. also its different per genre, i noticed that i don't need it (audiobook+ebook) with nonfiction books that much - because they arent intense in dialogues, i suppose - and narrated sections in others i can also go with audio only.

other time, when listening to the audiobook on my desktop pc, i play videos of video games playthroughs in the foreground - of something that im moderately interested in - rather than doing some random things on the internet. it servers as a consistent way of keeping my thoughts with whatever the book is about.

im primary an audiobook reader but plan on switching to text more often in the future. any tips for me?

it's a pity there are no suggestions because I have this problem too, especially with books I am reading rather than listening to.
I manage to pay attention when I'm listening (usually while playing Candy Crush) but just reading bores me after a short while, even if the story is interesting. There are times when I have to force myself to read at least 20 pages at a time, or the book would take forever.

Hoping for suggestions

Don`t use ebooks, use normal Books, and keep yourself in Proximity, i.e, keep your phone away, better switched off.

Either if you are using eBook use some app which dozes your Apps, so they don`t disturb you for an hour or two.
