So much of the time, I put books aside to read "for a treat when I'm done with this draft/revision/big ole mess." I make TBR piles that could rival the world's tallest buildings. I wolf down a few pages with a meal. I wish for the subway to get stuck so that I get a few extra minutes of reading time without feeling guilty. I study Madeleine L'Engle and Brian Greene for tips on effectively manipulating time, space, and plot.
But I am a writer because I am a reader because I am a writer because I am a reader...you get the point.
Reading feeds my soul, and it fuels my work.
It makes me a better writer.
And a better person.
And I love it.
So, this summer I'm giving myself permission to enjoy days of reading for all of those reasons.
Got any recommendations?
