As an author, I always find it interesting when people ask, "Who do you read?"
This question seems so simple, but when you really think about it...just how loaded is it?
-Does it speak to your knowledge as a writer?
-Does it speak to your knowledge of different genres?
-Does it speak to you as an individual?
These are some of my favorite books:
Absolutely amazing opening!
Sad, but enjoyable.
But, what do these books tell you about me? Anything?
Why do you choose the books that you read? I pick a book for so many reasons: author, setting, genre, characters, but when I find an author I like, I buy everything they have. Because I know I will enjoy it, or at least I hope so ;-)
What would the books on your shelf tell me or anyone about you?
