Read Backwards

Sometimes if I'm reading something difficult to understand or written in an uninteresting way I'll skip ahead to the end of the chapter, or perhaps just skim ahead several paragraphs until something looks interesting. Then I'll read one paragraph at a time in reverse order. I think this helps you focus by forcing you to guess what the writer's thought process is, and it can also help to know in advance what point they're working towards.
