Writer’s Reading List

I have never been a one to read one book at a time. To my parents’ chagrin, the piles of books rising from the floor tended to grow before their very own eyes, towering over the nightstands, threatening to topple over at any given time. Book shopping soon became book hoarding and book sneaking followed by bookstore visiting interdictions.

Never enough of bookshelves around here. Most probably that’s where Katie‘s passion and adventures started. When I started writing Katie’s adventures (a loooong time ago), I could picture her surrounded by books. An entire Library filled with knowledge and with adventures ready to be discovered was there, at the tip of my pen and that part was easy.

Here’s a writer’s reading list, or better yet, what’s on my nightstand at the moment. There are some I love, some I find okay, and some that I truly dislike, with a passion. But then again, writing a book is not an easy and simple task, that’s why (probably) we need to read some more…
