8 videos by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, award-winning writer and editor

Award-winning and bestselling writer, Kristine Kathryn Rusch talks about how aspiring writers read in the wrong fashion and for the wrong things. Then she goes on to explain how professional writers read to enjoy books and keep learning from other writers. And tells you how to make that switch from reading poorly to reading to help your writing.

For a writer hungry to keep learning, reading becomes critical. But reading in the wrong fashion can set back your progress. A critical topic for all writers.

These eight videos may change how you look at books as a writer, and they certainly might help you bring back the fun of reading again.
