Read to Write

Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved to read. While my love for reading has lasted over time, the amount I read has dwindled tremendously. I used to read anything I could get my hands on. I would sit down with a book and not get up until it was finished.
My mom always tells me that the way to become a better writer is to be a reader. She begs me to go back to my book obsessive days. But somehow, with all of my other responsibilities, and with my free time being consumed by reading through Facebook, I have neglected my love for reading books.
I agree with my mom on the importance of reading with regards to improving many aspects of myself, including the writing part of myself. I hope this is something I prioritize in the coming year, and that it is not too late to rekindle my love for a good book on a Saturday afternoon.
