When reading books are you supposed to read out the lines in your head...?

Like say each line to yourself in your head? Would it be more efficient to just read and draw conclusions later?

    You aren't "supposed" to do anything.

    However, experienced readers tend not to. Less experienced readers do.

    If you want to remember the book later then reading it "out loud" (whether in your head or not) can help fix the book in your mind by slowing down the rate at which you read and by making you focus on every word.

    You may find that reading "out loud" makes it harder to follow complex ideas over a book. The act of reading each word means that the overall sense may be lost.
