Reading widens your skills as a writer, and gives you an appreciation of different writing styles. Books can inspire your writing, and of course can increase your vocabulary and spelling.
In fact, if you want to be a great writer, READ as much as you can.
Some of MY favourite books include Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll (I love the Mad Hatter) and of course, the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. This year, I’ve challenged myself to read 25 books by the end of 2014.
