Writer Book Recommendations

Writers who read can write better. More proficiently. With greater expertise. Masterfully. Adeptly. Okay you get the idea.

Writers Need to Read

Regardless of how little time you have, writers can't neglect reading. To imagine that you have fathomless, inexhaustible resources within yourself is the height of folly. Drink deep from what others have created, benefit from their wordplay, stories, retellings and perspectives - the best writers read. Period.
