    This was a fantastic selection of readings, one per day, to last the year. It includes a wide variety of genres, topics, and writers and varies between both fiction and non-fiction. Some selections were less interesting that others, and some inspired me to look into the books they were chosen from.

    Ok, so I cheated and read ahead to finish this book one month ahead of schedule. 31 Subjects, for subject for each possible day of the month, covering the various sciences, arts, history, religion, literature (by time periods), different 20th century genres, memoir/biography, and of course, one day for "on writing." My interest was piqued beyond expectation when reading the excerpts from disciplines I would normally not have an interest in. Of the 366 books introduced, I have read 19 books, and Ok, so I cheated and read ahead to finish this book one month ahead of schedule. 31 Subjects, for subject for each possible day of the month, covering the various sciences, arts, history, religion, literature (by time periods), different 20th century genres, memoir/biography, and of course, one day for "on writing." My interest was piqued beyond expectation when reading the excerpts from disciplines I would normally not have an interest in. Of the 366 books introduced, I have read 19 books, and I found another 23 that I would like to read; opening doors never sought after. Thank you honey for this Christmas gift.

    The Daily Reader is comprehensive and encompassing in its delectable selection of prose and poetry. This book will expand the mind of the writer by reading from renowned literary works and then help him or her exercise critical thinking on the way to stretching the writer's creative limbs with the suggested writing exercises. In one year and one day, by lapping up Fred White's 366-page buffet of literary servings, a once troubled or "blocked" writer will surely come out all fired up again and sc The Daily Reader is comprehensive and encompassing in its delectable selection of prose and poetry.
