You don’t have to look far to find a list of the best books a writer should read. This is a benefit for new writers, no doubt.
Unfortunately, those of us who have been around for a number of years often own every book that tends to make these lists. And we read them. And re-read them.
Not only do we own them, we’ve absorbed them into our bloodstreams.
It wouldn’t be so bad if that list changed from year to year. But it doesn’t.
So while the usual best-books-writers-should-read lists are fine for the greenhorns in the field … what about the rest of us?
