34 Every writer is inspired by the books they read and continue to be inspired by them throughout their lives. The following is a book recommendation list I put together recently and posted on facebook. For some reason I didn't think to put this list on my blog until recently. These are books I find inspiring, extraordinary, and interesting. This list will never be complete.Feel free to agree, disagree or comment in any way. I'm always open for discussion.
