(Image courtesy of Media from Wix)
In 2022, I wrote an insightful piece about the importance of reading. I wrote the following paragraphs," I want to tell you about a secret issue many writers have, which I like to call writing inflation. Like economic inflation, writing inflation happens when a writer's words lose value as they produce more work. Critics and readers complain about how prolific writers' newer works mirror older ones. The question arises: How can a writer's work evolve but not sound redundant? The answer is simple: Read books.
"With only twenty-four hours a day, how can you find the time to read? I learned that there are multiple ways to absorb knowledge. The main three kinds of learning are called auditory (learning from listening), visual (learning from reading or pictorial representation), and kinetic (learning by doing the task). If you are an auditory learner like me, you can listen to a book when driving, exercising, or even writing. "
This is the third piece in a series about book recommendations. Please let me know what you think and if you have any book recommendations.
