What to Read Next

People always ask me what I'm reading. The embarrassing truth is that I'm so busy writing that books tend to stack up beside my bedside. At Maine Crime Writers today I did the weaselly thing and asked the most voracious reader I know—my wife Kristen—to recommend some of her recent favorites.

On a side note, I strongly believe that writers need to keep reading, both the classics and your contemporaries; it really is the best way to learn. So essentially my schedule has made me a hypcocrite on this subject.

Add "find more time to read" to my growing list of New Year's resolutions.
