Want to improve my verbal and written communication skills. I hear reading more would help but I don’t read as much as I used to. So I’m wondering what books would help with that? Should I just read books that tickle my fancy like suspense and true crime novels? Help! Welcome to all book recommendations!

Any reading will help with both of these topics. Read some fiction and then read some self improvement books. You are exposed to different words and writing styles. If you don’t know a word look up its definition and then re-read to see how it is used. Reading helps you to be a good writer and it helps with comprehension. I love to read!

I would say read what tickles your fancy for relaxation, and whatever news/culture for insight. For true crime, no one beats Ann Rule. I have been downloading the free book every month from Amazon Prime and have gotten hooked on suspense. But I also make sure to mix in some gentle and non violent things too to save my brain LOL. Easy reads from Alexander McCall Smith, who captures people’s voices like no one else. Comedy from David Sedaris or Jenny Lawson. I also like things in a series as the characters can start to feel like friends.
