Reading, believe it or not, is a big part of writing. Reading others’ works allows you to see different writing styles, which helps you to develop your own. Reading will also give you ideas for your own works, not in the form of copying (of course) but in giving you ideas for new projects of your own. Reading also gives you an opportunity to learn.

I am always in the middle of reading many books, sometimes as many as a dozen. I am currently reading:

  • Little Town on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder
  • The Martha Rules by Martha Stewart
  • Dictionary of Superstitions by David Pickering
  • Vampires by Konstantinos
  • The Organic Life: Confessions of a Suburban Homesteader by Joan Dye Gussaw

And a very good manuscript from the future best novelist ever, Sheila Buck 😀 (My sister).

So I am wondering… What are you reading? A book on the craft of writing? A fiction novel? Your favorite classic? Let us know in the comments. Provide a description if you would like, so that we can determine if we would also enjoy reading the book.
