Six Books Every Writer Should Read

  1. Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art by Scott McCloud
  2. The Art of Fiction by David Lodge
  3. Solutions for Novelists: Secrets of a Master Editor by Sol Stein
  4. The Turkey City Lexicon (You can find it here)
  5. A Dance to the Music of Time: vol.1: Spring by Anthony Powell
  6. The book which inspired you to become a writer. Ask yourself, what makes it so good?

I also now recommend a seventh book: The Pointless Rules of English.  Read more about it here on my blog.
