I’ve been a fan of editor-turned-agent Betsy Lerner ever since I read her brilliant book The Forest for the Trees when it came out in 2001. If you’ve never read it, you should immediately. It’s one of the best books for writers, right up there with Stephen King’s On Writing. Get the book!
Anyway, that’s not what today’s post is about, but I had a reason for talking about Betsy here. I read her blog all the time and last week she had a great post asking what books people have read but are too embarrassed to admit to. What a great question!
So today, in honor of my fellow agent Betsy (who doesn’t know I’m a fellow agent and who’d be mortified to know she has a stalker in Colorado)…
Q4U: What book have you read recently that you might not read in public and are embarrassed to admit to, even now?
Mine is easy: The Lost Symbol. Also I love John Grisham, so occasionally you’ll catch me with one of his. Oh yeah, you might have seen me carrying around a couple of torrid
bodice-ripper romances but they were research, I swear!
