We know that authors should read, read, read in the genre they write. So, for example, if you aspire to being a children’s fiction author, you should read tons of children’s fiction. If you want to write devotions for teens, you should read lots and lots of devotions for teens.

Gathering the books you need to read might be daunting. Although most authors have huge libraries, you can get more books by becoming a frequent visitor to the library, used bookstores, and garage sales. Also, don’t overlook borrowing books from others.

It is important to take reading to the next level and beyond.
