You Are What You Read: INFOGRAPHIC

youarewhatyoureadMike Hanski at Bid4Papers.com has created an infographic called, “You Are What You Read,” which explores the reading lists of a number of influential people and how it influences what they have written.

The graphic illustrates connections between reading and writing. Check it out: “Enjoy what you read. It is difficult and mostly impossible to write something really good if you did not experience anything good that had been written already. Being a writer yourself, you have an ace in your sleeve: you can read a book with an eye for writing, though you do not even realize it.”

We’ve embedded the entire graphic after the jump for you to explore further.
