After I finish the rough draft of FJR, I have planned to go on a reading spree. But, I'm having trouble deciding which stack of books to read.
Stack 1: Stuff that I just wanted to read. These are in no particular order by no particular people, just books I thought seemed interesting and picked up off the shelf.
Stack 2: Reading that is meant to get me prepped for my next novel-writing endeavour. These are books (I still want to read them...very important to note) that I think are similar to what I want to accomplish with the next book.
The mind frame is different while reading. One is a much more conscious thing with special attention to style, etc. The other is more T.V. watching--but since they're books then there's still the lit element. You see what I'm saying? How to pick?
