For those people who want to read more but are not able to develop the habit, a bit of negative reinforcement might do the trick.
Set up an app or an extension (Bookeeper let's name it) that overlays a timer showing the last time you read a book. Firstly on your desktop and phone's top corners, for internal motivation. From time to time, every week or so, it would pop up in a large frame across your screen, while you're using it, to gather your attention: "2 weeks since you read a book!"
Then it would post embarrassing, maybe humorous mocking messages on your social media, LinkedIn, Facebook, or Twitter.
Something jokingly "It has been two months since Goran has last read a book. Maybe crayons and colouring are more his thing?" - Bookeeper App.
Or "It has been six months since Miloš last read a book, soon he'll start believing in astrology." - Bookeeper App.
The way it would check whether you read the book is by setting up quizes with six questions about the book you bought, ideally six answer options, and if you read the book you'll know the answers to it.
Or it can be a peer to peer verification, as I mentioned in my contribution here with the QR code. The two would check each other, although I think the quiz option is better as it takes the human good will towards the peer out of it. Or bad will.
