There’s been some really interesting comments on yesterday’s post about Lev Grossman‘s article on Modern Book Publishing. I was particularly taken by Joe’s comment. “The existence of a publishing hurdle will make the accomplishment of getting published a more meaningful one when it finally comes and, beyond that, will make it more likely that I will actually enjoy some success in connecting to readers, because it keeps me from inflicting my worst work on people.” That’s really close to what I was getting at!
Let’s be honest here: like so many of you, I love to read. I read voraciously. Manuscripts and submissions, yes, but I still have my favorite authors as well that I need to keep up with. When I moved in with Rexroth, we combined our bookshelves (well, some of them), and I discovered a whole other set of books I want to dive into. So, the question of the day is this: how do you track not just what you want to read, but what you have read?
