For Writers, Reading is Working

We've done a number of posts about the importance of reading for writers. For example, we shared that Lisa See advised:

Read a thousand books, and your words will flow like a river.

Consequently, while reading, even for pleasure, a writer is (organically) working on (improving) his or her writing. 

Thus, Jennifer Weiner, the New York Times bestselling author of That Summer, reportedly fittingly advised:

If people give you a hard time and tell you to get your nose out of a book, tell them you're working.
