ThinkingOutLoud 8: Reading Out of Writer’s Block

Elisabeth and Merianna talk about how reading in a genre can help authors get out of writer’s block. They also discuss that as an author, you have to be careful about reading too much in the genre so that you don’t sound too much like another writer. After which, they try to name their top three books, quite unsuccessfully.
