An Informal Survey of Writers About Reading

A discussion with a writer friend piqued by curiosity about the reading habits of writers. I’d love to see some responses to these questions.

  1. How often do you read?
  2. Do you finish every book you start?
  3. If not, what causes you to stop reading a book?
  4. What’s your definition of flowery language?
  5. Does flowery language discourage you from reading a book?
  6. How important is the first line of a book or story?
  7. Do you read reviews before choosing a book to read?
  8. Do you read ebooks or are you strictly a physical book reader?
  9. What book are you reading right now (or the last book you read)?
  10. Did you leave a review?
