The Old Soldier cannot imagine a writer who does not like to read. But a writer should not read like other readers. Sure, the writer reads to be entertained and informed like any other reader; but after reading for entertainment and for information the writer should read with a critical eye.
If what the writer reads is well written, the writer learns more about what works in writing. If what the writer reads is poorly written, the writer learns what does not work.
This is how a writer should read.
