I never seem to stop reading. I read off and on and day and then, most evenings, I get a bit of reading in too. I read most genres--some more than others. I'm a lot more selective now that I'm in my 50s and realizing my years on this planet are waning a bit faster than I expected. Reading is a must for a writer, but it's a terrifically enjoyable and important activity for anyone. I encourage you to find the best books you can find and read, read, read.
