I was asked why I get so uppity about reading. Its a fair question. I believe that like anything else, the more you read, the more you like to read. And vice versa. So I think the point to getting to the point of really enjoying reading, is to read good works. Robert E. Howard wrote great works. Some might suggest he was just a pulp writer, but it doesn't begin to describe his depth, elegant use of words, and his perfectly adept creation of action scenes. Every work of his left me stunned by its plot, dialogue and story.
