Note to Self About Reading

Book and candle

I don’t have a lot of time currently for pleasure reading, and I was thinking that during that rare time I get, I’d like to stick with classics, because I’ve never read most of them and want to become familiar with them firsthand and have them guide my own style a little bit. But it’s also important for a writer to keep up with new and well-written things on the market, especially in their genre. I wondered how I could balance that and decided that I could alternate reading a classic with a newer book. Bingo, I’ll keep up with the market, plus feed my mind from the classic writing of the ages…or something like that.
