Reading is everything

28 April 2014

Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it’s a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it’s a way of making contact with someone else’s imagination after a day that’s all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.

Nora Ephron

  1. And it all goes twice over for writing. It’s reading but so much harder. However great it is to enjoy someone else’s world and characters it’s even better to create your own.

    Nice one PG, perfect contrast to the Hugo rubbish.

  2. A great recipe for keeping the monkey mind from straying too far out of the sane perimeter.
