Books I read in May, 2009

It was another month of crazed busy-ness around here in May. I did a little off-duty, non-slush reading, but not a lot. In other news: I think I'll have a post about the intersection of writing and art ready this week. On to the books!


Completed

1. Writing the Breakout Novel, by Donald Maass. Nonfiction, writing.

*

2. Portable Childhoods, by Ellen Klages (for the second time). Fantasy and science-oriented short stories.

*

Discarded

None.

IMHO Donald Maass's book is a 'must read' for anyone looking to publish a novel :)

I agree. Maass gets into ideas that most writing books don't cover.
