“If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot.” ― Stephen King
I decided to take King’s advice and this blog is the result of my travels through the world of reading.
“Read, read, read. Read everything — trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.” ― William Faulkner
This blog is about reading, books, and the people who write them. You’ll find some reviews of the books I read, reading lists, book and writer features, some quotes, and info about the major literature prizes. All is intended to inspire and fuel your reading journey whether you’re reading purely for pleasure or reading with purpose.
“If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.” ― Haruki Murakami,
