Authors are avid readers. Heck, I’ve always got my nose in one book or another at any given time. Just look at my GoodReads account (that is after I do a monthly update) and see how many books I remembered reading and have read through my life. If an author does not have listed over 300 books then they are not updating their reading list (or just started to post what they read).
If a writer loves to read, then why are you not also? Think about what there is out there for you. Everything from flights of fancy to incredible adventures. Time travel to horrifying stories. Triumph of spirit to undeniable heartache. Yes, we writers create it all.
And when you have a chance to see a group of writers in person, just imagine how rich it will be for the soul. To actually talk to the creator of your next favourite book!
