Let Great Reading Fuel Your Writing
Great writers read voraciously and across many topics and genres. They read to learn, to research, to study the style of others, and to improve their own work. They read because they love the written word. But becoming well read takes time, dedication, and patience. The thought can be daunting especially when you're eager to get to your own writing.
Fred White, author of The Daily Writer, helps you sort through the plethora of reading material available by providing you with 366 engaging excerpts from ancient poetry to modern science, on topics from allegory to food to writer's block. Each thoughtfully chosen excerpt is followed by a brief reflection and a prompt that allows you to integrate elements from each piece into your own writing.
The Daily Reader makes broad reading accessible, invigorates your thirst for the written word, and equips you to put the power of the pros behind your writing.

Comments about The Daily Reader:
I found this book amongst the Booktopia sale items and am so glad I decided to buy it! I've been making a conscious effort this year to build my creative writing muscles and this book is really helping me in that goal. Each day has a different excerpt from a given text, a reflection, and a writing prompter for you to undertake. I've taken to noting my reflections in Day One and then publishing the result of the prompter onto my blog, and over time I'm now seeing my confidence build and - more importantly - I'm generating more ideas!
If you're eager to make the commitment, this book makes it easy.
