I like to fancy myself an OK writer until I read really good writers, then I’m half inspired and half intimidated. Inspired to work on my craft, to hone my skills, to slow it all down and play with words. Intimidated because, well, you know, it’s intimidating.
Now I’m back to my junk food beach reads. They may taste good, but there is no real substance there.
Daily Candy, a fun melange of a site, recently had a list of 101 top reads. It’s a good place to go if you’re looking for a recommendation for something different than whatever rut you are in book-wise.
