Shannon Hale maintains a blog--listed on my blog roll--always packed full of information. Timely and useful information.
Beginning with her August 31, How to be a reader (part 1) post and continuing since, Shannon has expressed great insight into reading and writing books. As both an avid book reader and an aspiring writer, I have very much appreciated and enjoyed her posts.
So, I direct all readers and writers out there to visit her blog and learn how to read through the eyes of an author.
P.S. She also writes fabulous books--my favorites are Austenland (hilariously fun read) and Book of a Thousand Days (young adult fairy tale inspired writing at its best).
