At Aspen Summer Words, I was constantly writing down names of books I wanted to read, buying books, getting authors’ signatures and now, my to-read-pile has grown and my to-read-list has too. Thought I would share some of the titles recommended there. I can’t speak to them yet, but, be assured if I wrote it down, I respected the person giving the recommendation enough to give it a try.
Writing Craft Books
Two books by William Stafford were recommended:
Both of these books, though focused on poetry, were recommended by fiction authors. I was reminded of Amber Dermont’s advice that short story writers and novelists should read poetry every day. I still don’t read it daily, but I am increasing my poetry reading.
So, if your summer reading list needs a few things to check out, maybe something here will intrigue you. What’s on your to read list these days??
