Let Stephen King Pick Your Next Read

It is said that to be a writer you must do two things: write and read. The first one seems pretty obvious and the second one is as important as the first. If you’ve read Stephen King’s On Writing you know he subscribes to the writers must read philosophy–although I suspect most writers would still be big readers even if they didn’t write.

 

  If you’ve already made your way through the list of books at the end of On Writing and aren’t already following Stephen King on Twitter, you should. Not only do you get book jokes, he also recommends books. I’ve wrangled them together here going all the way back to April– in case you meant to read one but then forgot what the title was and haven’t had the time to scroll through countless tweets. I scrolled. I scrolled.
