We’ve all likely been told there are two ways to get better at writing:

We need to write…and we need to READ.

Read writing craft books. Read in your genre. Read out of your genre. Read the classics.

You can learn so much to improve your own writing by reading others’ words. You can get ideas for how to work out a problem in your manuscript. Inspiration for a new idea. Or even great of examples of how NOT to write.

So, what are YOU reading right now?

I’ll go first:

My daily devotional book for this year is Daily Strength for Daily Needs by Mary W. Tileson (my first time using this devo. Jury’s still out.)

I’m also reading through the Bible in 2013 – this time chronologically – and am using the One Year Chronological Bible. (Like it!)

I’m about 1/3 of the way through One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp (which, it seems, everyone has read besides me. LOVING it – and recommend you pick it up too).

And, I’ve just started the newest release by one of my very favorite authors: Ring of Secrets by Roseanna M. White.

So, what are YOU reading? Let us know in the comments!
