My pile of memoirs (which went beyond the original order of 16 to 23, as I found another popular author or two on my swap site) have been coming in the mail daily and are collecting on my dresser top. Mary Karr has three memoirs! Still waiting for the first, but I can't even imagine what would go on in a life to fill three memoirs!!
At the rate I'm getting time to read, I won't finish the stacks within this year...how depressing.
But, I'm hoping in those stacks there is a gem or two waiting to inspire me and give me an idea...for narration, for couth, for something for which I don't even know I am searching! I'm relying on the timing (since I don't believe in coincidence).
Which books have inspired you and why?
