    A lovely trip to Barnes and Noble

    Discussion in 'Book Discussion' started by Aceldama, Aug 6, 2019.

    Going to go to a bookstore soon,(!!) And I was looking for a book suggestion. Any genre, any type. If you'd like a specific criteria for a suggestion I'm mainly going to look for a poetry collection. No, I will not purchase milk and honey, or love her wild, etc.

    Would do you suggest, and why?

    - David Pawson (Especially Unlocking the Bible)
    - Richard Wurmbrand
    - Anthony de Mello
    - Any good Biblical era atlas. (Paul Lawrence?)

    About writing:
    - Block
    - Cron
    - King
    - Snyder
    - Hauge
    - Truby
    - Schechter

    About something else:
    - Hintsa
    - Taleb
    - Orwell
    - Adams (Scott)...

    Aki Hintsa & Nassim Taleb.

    About writing:

    Lawrence Block, Lisa Cron, from Stephen King On Writing, Blake Snyder, Michael Hauge, John Truby, Jeffrey Alan Schechter...

    I read with an idea that if there is one good thing to learn or new tool to use, it's worth reading. And this goes (for me) also with religious books. I really recommend de Mello and Pawson.

    Like books specifically on the craft of writing?
    I watched a video of an author named Jerry Jenkins who's apparently been writing for 40 years and has 190 books to his name, many of which were best sellers. He said that the type of writer King says he was was the type to sit and write and sort of let the story flesh itself out as apposed to more streamlined outline writing. I forget the term he used.
