I fear I lack all the necessary reading that a writer must have. I haven’t read much of the classics and I freely admit my love for books turned BBC mini series such as ‘Bleak House” by Charles Dickens.
I know they say that all good writers must read, read, read and read some more. I do read but I simply haven’t the time to sit and read for more than about 15-20 minutes. I would love more time but with family, school, work and my own general interests such as this blog, I find little time to sit and enjoy the great invention called books.
Books on tape have been my savior and I am lucky to actually, physically read books twice, but closer to once a year. I often end up skimming them as closely as can be done, sacrilege I am sure. I take what I can get.
I have, however, been brushing up on my children’s literature due to my homeschooling ways. What my daughter reads, I read. I have also been very lucky to read along in historical works with her and some fun stuff such as Greek Myths and Viking tales.
So though my reading is less than what I’d like it to be, I suppose for now, it will work.
