Why you should read classic books and some suggestions.

Classic books are one of the most difficult category of books that you can read.
They are called ''havy'' in the italian language because sometimes they have some difficulto words or too old expression that you have to search because the most of the time you don't know the meaning.
They are hard and sometime quite boring but they need to be like this.
If you consider two books, a contemporary books, let's take for example Jamie McGuire's ''Beautiful disaster'' and George Orwell's 1984, we have a kind of love story in both of the books, however, the concept that Jamie tells in her beautiful thing are totally wrong, they teach to young girls that your boyfriend should be aggressive, way too jalous als if the main characters of the story are not even in a relationship, I hope that who read that book could relate to me, so it is full of wrong concepts that teach just wrong things.
We have 1984 that is a classic, there is some sort of love story between Winston and Julie but it's not a tossic one, it does not teach to young people bad stuff, it teaches things that can happen in the future and happened in the past.
If you want me to talk about a beautiful disaster leave me a comment.

You know.
With classic books you learn.
You expand your mind.
You feel the same things with contemporary books just when they are written soo good, when everything that is happening in that pages is described fully, and it's not just a bunch of events written on a pice of peaper and probably you are not even understanding anything.
So that's why you should give a possibility to classic books.

Now I am going to suggest some easy ones that anyone can start from:

  • The call of the wild by Jack London, the story is good and the writing is easy
  • A tale of two citys by Charles Dikens, same as before
  • Animal Farm by George Orwell, you will understand something more about politycs.
And if you want something a little bit difficult I suggest:
  • 1984 by George Orwell
  • The picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
  • Frankentein by Mary Shelley 
This are the reasons why I suggest to give a possibility to classic books, they are worth it, you will learn something and you will encrease your culture.

How to write and publish a book.

Readers always come at the end asking to themselves if they would ever be able to write and publish a book.  Well, it is possible to write a book, and I can give you some suggestions right now. First of all you have to study the market a little bit, if you want to write a romance but everyone is crazy for horror at the moment, probably it's not the best time for it and your work need to wait or it won't be as succesful as you will want it to be. If the ''style'' that you are writing at the moment is successful then make sure that the story is original and it is not a copy of a copy. Do not make grammar mistakes. Avoid them, make sure that someone else reads the book for you and valutates it, if you want I can do it for you, check the services page to know how to contact me, someone should tell you if your book is good or it have no chanches.

This is your time to shine - for all the authors that need to market their novel - FREE

In Italy the government gives every person who turns 18 a bonus of 500€ to spend on book. Since I want to improve my English and to help people I have thought about buying self published authors and traditional published novels but of new writers to help them be recognized and promote their work if it is good.  All you need to do is write to me an email at readtosurvive.blog@gmail.com telling me about your book, what is the story and all you want and follow me on Twitter or/and Instagram (3.1k followers) I will select 5 books a month to buy and review, if your book is too good to be true it will be suggested to my blogger friends and it will get a permanent spot under all my articles with a direct link to buy it.  At the beginning of the month I will announce on the blog who the winners are and I will announce when to expect the review.
(Obviously understand that some months I can buy 2 books instead of 5 because sometimes the bonus doesn't work and sometimes I just don't have…

Today I am offering an opportunity to all authors that haven't published their work yet and need some help in creating the cover. 
I have created my own cover for my first book, The last beat, because after I had payed a graphic designer he just got the money and never delivered the work, after I have told him that he was going to get sued he gave me my money back, so I am having a kind of hard time in trusting people on the internet again. 
This is why I am offering to you the possibility to have a free cover designed by me because after I got dropped by m…
