“What! You are gonna read that entire book?”
Coming from a writer that was bizarre…
Having passed by a friend’s bookstore in town,
Looked for a new arrival and found none,
I decided to call my sister
Told her to bring me *book 3 of the sword of truth*
By Terry Goodkind
She heeded. And when she was handing me the book…
As ‘luck’ would have it,
I was with this writer ‘friend’ of mine,
An amazing writer, whose work I fell deeply in love with
But that question was quite a blow.
According to him, writing is a pretty full time job
It is for most writers, and I get it.
I am just saying,
The world needs more avid readers.
I do categorize myself as one, as I appreciate all writers
Try to read all books and articles that come my way
except for school books of course.
Most people write but rarely read, and that’s perfectly okay.
What they forget to do is appreciate their readers.
People read because it is their passion
It is what they do best!
Just give it a thought.
If everyone is writing and no one is reading,
It means, we are going to have way too many books on shelves
Waiting to be read or censured, by some intended future generation,
Or those critics who give a review based on a synopsis.
So then what’s the essence of writing, if no one’s gonna read the content anyway?
