I tried to read the first book by one of my favourite authors and…it was bad. Here’s what I learned and why I’ll still keep reading their new books.
I’ve completed my first foray into Dickens.
For some strange reason I’ve never ventured to read any of his works before. I’ve had a number of them on my shelves for years, and yet never opened them.
I’ve realized I do this because what I love most about reading is that I get to experience someone else’s life and see the world from their perspective. I know that I’ve learned much from reading stories and books. I know that I’m a better person because of what I’ve read. I’m a kinder, more empathetic person because of what I’ve read.
