What Writers Read

Have you ever picked up a book that was so moving, so soul gripping that it inspired you? You know, like made you want to go on a diet. Or go plant a big wet smooch on your significant other? Or, in my case, write a book.

Have you ever wondered what books writers read? I think about that all the time (seriously). And then my brilliant sister Suzette had an idea. The light-bulb got plugged into the socket in her brain. Her exact words...

Why don't we start a blog about what writers read?

And a new blog is born.

Suzette and I, with the help of writer/blogger/query ninja Elana Johnson are going to give it a shot. Plus, we've each got a page to keep track of what we read and would love book suggestions!

On top of that, we have links to some of the best book review blogs, so if you're looking for something awesome to read, drop by.

Ahem, why are you still here? Go check it out, guys! In case you missed the earlier link, here it is again:
