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?
What about those who want to go from undergraduate to graduate work? Those who want to inject a tangible and seductive element in their writing that growls, “You better take notice of me!”
What are the best books they should read? And why?
As you might guess, Rough Draft host Demian Farnworth has an answer.
