Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Stephen King

Thanks to Colleen over at Silver Threading for facilitating this weekly community event.

I recently made the choice to go back to book reading because with blogging, social media and email I spend so much of my day in front of an electronic device I felt I needed a break from it.
