  1. Funny how the reasons for writing are the same as reading! Good post!

    • Thanks, Patrick. Isn’t that the truth! Must be why we love doing both!

  2. The list seems so obvious and yet how many of us take the gift of reading and writing for granted. Thanks for the reminder. Doris M

  3. Good list. It says it all. How diminished would be our world if no books existed. But as long as there are humans there will be books or the equivalent thereof. Even the cave people drew stories on their caves.

  4. Thanks for the list, Heidi. I sent it on to some of my reading friends. I also liked the comment that the list applies to our writing, too!

  5. Good list, Heidi.
