As writers, it is important that we be avid readers as well. Not only is it super fun but it's also essential if you wish to hone your own skills. Reading helps us see how to structure our work. It helps expand our vocabulary. It lets us see things from many other perspectives. It keeps us relevant for whatever genre we are writing in. And it helps us with that writer's instinct, you know, when you're reading something that is really bad or something that is really good? You can use that instinct in your own writing, if you're honest with yourself, it will help you spot when your writing isn't where it needs to be and to leave it alone when it is where it needs to be. So we set up this forum to talk about what books you are reading. Tell us what you love and hate about them. Tell us what worked and what didn't. There's so much great writing out there, share it with the rest of us so we can all move forward and create better writing!

Just create a new topic with the title for the subject. If you are reading the topics please note there will most likely be spoilers so read at your own risk! :D Also make sure to include the author of the book somewhere in your post. Happy posting!

I just finished Go Ask Alice, which was good, but rather depressing. So I decided to start Yeah, I Said it by Wanda Sykes for a little bit of a laugh!

I still have not read To Kill a Mockingbird but I really want to. What is it about the book do you feel that has such appeal that has made it such a popular book?
