I’m an author and a reader: Are you?



When I hear writers tell me that they really not readers I am taken back. How you can be one without the other amazes me. I been an avid reader since gosh as long as I can remember. My husband and I have way too many books. Our move to our home now had a U-Haul that primarily had books in it.

So why are you writing in the first place and to who? And why should people read your book?And would you get offended if someone say to you that they don’t read?

I always have a book in my purse, car, by my bed, by my place in the living room and yes the bathroom but those are the funnies. Sadly life gets busy with family, health, the home and everything in between and being able to mark out time to read is not always there. That happened recently to me. It had been weeks since I had picked up a book. This past weekend I read two books, I made the time and plus the weather was crappy and I was not feeling well so was situated on the couch. But I did read and it felt so awesome. And not a digital book, which I get the reasons for that, but a real book in my hand. It was a glorious weekend to be reading. I have missed reading for pleasure hopefully it won’t be weeks before I do it again.
