In my office, I have had a stack of books accumulating since before I started my MFA program in 2016. Of course, I've been meaning to read them, but, as you might expect, up until this point, I haven't succeeded.
However, since I wasn't able to take any classes this summer (another story for another time), I've found myself with time to work down on this stack. On the top of this stack were two books that I have had on my To-Read list for years: Steal Like An Artist and Show Your Work! by Austin Kleon.
