I have been building a list of books that I consider to all be Enjoyable Reads. I have made a page here on my website to share this list with you. I see it as a wide variety of genres and themes which probably has something for most people.
Reading should be important to everyone in general. I have loved reading for as long as I can remember. Looking at the length of this list, I definitely have read a lot over the years. It seems that in today’s society with everyone having a crazy, busy schedule, no one has or takes the time to make reading a regular part of their daily lives. For many people today, the extent of their reading doesn’t go beyond Tweets, Facebook Posts or Snapchats. That is a very sad realization because of all the benefits reading has for all of us.
We can use reading to:
- reduce stress by giving us a break from our life for a few minutes, if that’s all we have to spare
- stimulate our brains by making us think about something other than whatever is on our smartphone screen
- learn new things which helps keep our brain active which is important as we age.
Even as a writer, it’s important to read as much as possible in addition to writing. While reading, writers are exposed to different writing styles which can help their own writing craft. After reading a variety of works, writers should be able to determine the difference between poor and quality writing which helps shape their own future writing projects. Reading work from other authors helps writers to continuously learn by example.
No matter who you are or how often you are able to actually sit down and read, you should try to do it whenever you can.
I would love to hear from you. Are there any books on my list that you have read or want to read? Do you have any suggestions for me to read? Let’s get reading!!
As always, thanks for stopping by!! 🌞

Hello, my name is Angela and this is my first blog post. My blog is going to be about two of my favorite things, Writing and Reading. I am going to share what I have learned through the research that I have done for my own ongoing journey to become a better writer. I will talk about books from all different genres and hope to get more people to remember why they loved reading so they will get back to it again. I am excited that you are here!!
The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living: A Novel by Louise Miller This is a great story! It has a diverse group of characters who work well together in the story, all of their lives being intertwined with each other. After reading about Louise Miller on her Author Page, I found it fun how she and her main character have some of the same interests. Salty was definitely one of my favorite characters. Looking forward to reading her next book when it comes out next month. Check it out on Amazon
