I am not as fortunate as many of these writers who were born into well to do families and had time to sit and write. As mentioned in this book, many don't have time to read all great books, so this book has enlightened me about great writers and their backgrounds. When I had to write essays at school, my teachers encouraged me to become a writer. So these kinds of books have been helping and encouraging me a great deal. I also want to thank the readers for their great reading! BTW I live 3 hours away from the Almabra in Spain, it's amazingly beautiful.
