Welcome to Around the Web!
We’re near the end of June and the halfway point of the year.
It’s also summer, a good time to think about getting into a reading habit.
This summer, I will read a book per week. There is saying that if you want to write a lot, you should also read a lot (I paraphrased). Reading helps to get your thoughts going, and inspire you to write more.
Speaking of reading more, I’m spending July writing posts about reading, so be on the lookout for that.
In the meantime, here are some stories for you to read. Cheers!
