The importance of reading
“The man who doesn’t read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them.” Mark Twain.
If you don’t read you are missing out on a great way of learning as well as a wonderful way of improving your life. Books can instruct, inform, entertain, motivate and inspire. This is a simple and relatively inexpensive (if you join a library) method of growing as a person. Drawing on the wisdom of the ages, books cover every subject you can imagine.
Writing and the importance of reading:
For writers, reading is essential. Reading a wide range of authors in a wide range of genre is a very effective way of helping your development as a writer. All the different styles of writing, the range of voices used and the techniques employed by published authors will help develop your own style and voice.
Develop the habit of reading. Resolve to never let a day go by without reading something.
For me though, there remains just one problem – finding the time to read all the books I would love to read.
