Reading is essential for writers. Reading stimulates our imagination and enables us to enter many others worlds without leaving the comfort of our homes. Reading is one of our lifebloods,the source for much of our inspiration and ideas. Without reading, writers cannot be successful.
Reading is also on of the great joys of life, and it is one of the most important activities that everyone can do, regardless of being a writer or not. Reading, for me, is one of the central parts of my life. It is why it is part of the title of my blog: charlesfrenchonwordsreadingandwriting.wordpress.com
So, I am issuing a friendly challenge to anyone reading this post: read at least two books this month, and at the end of the month, let us know what you read. There is no pressure in this little challenge, no competition, and no awards. I hope it simply encourages everyone to read a few books!
Even though it is the beginning of the challenge, I will tell you that I am currently reading: The Graves Are Walking: The Great Famine and the Saga of the Irish People by John Kelly and The Last Mile by David Baldacci. One is an historical look at the Great Irish Famine and the other a thriller.
So, are you up to the challenge? What will you read?
