December is Read a New Book Month

read a book, national read a new book month, read a new book monthWhy not challenge yourself and read a new book during the month of December? What’s new on your shelf that you haven’t read yet?

Reading was not always a favorite pastime of mine. As a writer however, you have to be a copious reader to become a great writer. I learned that from Maya Angelou. Otherwise, if you’re not an avid reader, as a writer, how do you truly expect someone to read your work? It works both ways. I have a few books on my shelf that I purchased and did not read yet. Believe it or not, I am in the process of finishing a book I purchased years ago and forgot that I had it.

Sometimes I look at reviews to help me with a few decisions in the book buying process. If a book is a recommended read, I will ask the opinions of those who either read it or from reading the reviews and ratings.

Feel free to share what books you are reading during Read a New Book Month.
