Summer Reading For Writers

Summer is finally here, and that means just one thing – it’s beach-reading season!  As a writer, you must constantly be reading.  If you’re working on your memoir, I recommend Out of Africa by Isak Dinesen, or Stop-Time by Frank Conroy.  Working on a novel? I can always find inspiration in William Faulkner – As I Lay Dying is a favorite; as are any of Joyce Carol Oates’ works. Or American Short Story Masterpieces is sure to provide some variety!   What books are you taking on vacation this summer?   Kindle or paperback?
