In my travels through out the World Wide Web I come across various posts that produce a strong reaction from me. I try to visit other bloggers blogs to see what they are talking about, I read their posts to see what they are thinking about books and other passions that they may have. I feel that this will make me a better blogger and yes it does take time away from my reading time but I feel it is worth it. I also visit authors sites to learn more about them.
While visiting an authors site I came across a statement they made that their time is spent honeing their craft and that although they go to book stores and browse through the latest releases reading is time consuming and they felt their time spent better elsewhere. I was taken aback by this statement.
I have always heard that a good author is one who reads as well as writes.
