Reading from J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring and discussing how falling in love with reading influenced his life.
Michael’s new book How to Begin: Start Doing Something that Matters is now available at www.HowToBegin.com.
If you’re a listener of this podcast, I believe that you love reading. My question is, do you remember where and when that seed got planted? I do, and that’s what I’m here to celebrate in today’s special 100th episode.
Michael reads two pages from ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’ by J. R. R. Tolkien. [reading begins at 7:30]
Hear him discuss:
- His relationship with reading, growing up. [1:13]
- “This book gave me permission to imagine.” [14:50]
- How reading helps you become a better writer: “The way to become a good writer is to be a bad writer.” [16:12]
