As you write, it is helpful to read! How else can you recognize good literature? The Library of Congress has many books that you can read online for free. This link will take you to the Featured Classic Book - A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs. I read the entire series - marveling at the imagination of a man born in 1858 who envisioned life on Mars before space travel was even a reality. Burroughs died in 1950- before we put a man on the moon. Read his tales of John Carter to see the outer space he imagined. Oh, and if Edgar Rice Burroughs sounds familiar, he also wrote another story that you've probably heard of - Tarzan of the Apes!
