What are some books that you (contributors and readers alike) have read recently? Take some time to think about what parts of the book inspire, appall, upset, or confuse you. Think about why and also think about how the author has accomplished these this - or not accomplished it as well as you would like. Reading and thinking about what you've read are the two cornerstones in writing.
Here are some books I recommend if you are in need of good reading material. Please, please, please feel free to add to this list. I would like to make a large posting with a composite 'must read' list as recommended by the contributor's of Detangled Writers!
- Grendel by John Gardner
- Battle Royale by Koushun Takami
- Drowned Cities by Paolo Bacigalupi
- The Road by Cormac McCarthy
- Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
