Reading and writing go together.
Writing implies reading, but reading doesn't necessarily imply writing.
Writing is more creative, though both can be entertaining.
Some of the many authors I enjoy include those shown here and Lillian Jackson Braun, Janet Evanovich, Sue Grafton, Sarah Paretsky, Spider Robinson, J. K. Rowling, Isaac Asimov, C. S. Lewis, Sarah Strohmeyer.

Ms. Douglas' books challenge me over and over as a reader, to pay attention to details and is, for me at least, an intellectual exercise as much as entertainment. I especially like her Midnight Louie series. Picture taken May 1, 2003 in Lansing, MI.
